Supply Chain Consultancy
Are you confident that your decision making takes into account all of the trade-offs in the supply chain to arrive at the best result?
Modern supply chains are often highly complex - optimisation within the organisation is difficult enough, without involving the other parties in the supply chain.
Whatever your specific issues are, we can tailor our supply chain consulting services to help.
Go Supply Chain and its team of uk based supply chain consultants have undertaken supply chain consulting with many companies of varying size across multiple industry sectors.
For example, our supply chain consultants have built cost-to-serve models to allow companies to unlock hidden profit potential by understanding the costs involved in serving specific customers and products. These models are custom built for each client, according to their priorities and the specific complexities of each business. The clients that have benefited include a major supermarket chain, a global food ingredients supplier, and a UK based manufacturer supplying internationally through multiple channels.
Also under the supply chain consulting banner is inventory optimisation. This can form part of a wider programme of work, or be a project in itself. Our supply chain consultants use inventory modelling to establish the correct level of stock for a given situation – balancing the need to maintain a high level of customer service with the desire to minimise working capital and . The modelling can be used to define the correct stocking policy for a large range of SKUs – for example, which SKUs should be stocked in local branches and which should be held in one national centre.
In an increasingly globalised economy, the need for expertise in optimising the international supply chain has never been greater. This is a complex area, and one where regulations and best practice are subject to rapid change. We have the expertise required, and our specialist international supply chain consultants are focused wholly on this field. Examples of the types of project undertaken include customs duty optimisation, setting up customs warehousing, finding the right international freight solutions and benchmarking the costs, and advice on obtaining Authorise Economic Operator status (AEO).
