Assuring Flexible, Full Flow
At the best of times, value, procurement, supply and logistics chains can be complex environments and ecosystems within which to operate. The current global pandemic crisis, along with Brexit, are two current and serious examples of the volatility and disruption which can be faced, which can have potentially catastrophic financial and customer service consequences.
It is not well known that surgeons sometimes only a medical device once the patient is under the anaesthesia! Now that is an impressive just in time delivery example! They may however have to order multiple sizes, which could be wasted, a fact borne out by research suggesting that in some cases only about 10% of the value of equipment procured were actually used. In one particular case, a medical equipment manufacturer, through the innovation of a 4PL provider who successfully eliminated waste, associated costs and improved services, now see their supply chain as a competitive advantage rather than a cost.
Whatever size and scale procurement, supply and logistics chain you require or are operating in, it is mission-critical that they are as seamless, effective, efficient, robust and rigorous as possible. In today’s global business environment, there are however significant other factors that require judicious consideration, from operational and legal to ethical and sustainability issues.
