Next-generation supply chains: Efficient, fast and tailored

PwC recently published a new survey about the "Next-generation supply chains: Efficient, fast and tailored".

Following are some key statements:

Companies that beat the competition on supply chain performance also achieve significantly better financial results. Supply chain Leaders deliver on time in full (OTIF) on 95.7% of occasions and have an impressive 15.3 inventory turns, while the Laggards achieve only 3.8 turns. That means greater efficiency and customer satisfaction without driving up working capital — essentially, having it all. Those are metrics that really impact the bottom line; the Leaders in our survey enjoy average earnings before interest and taxes (EBIT) margins of 15.6%, whereas the Laggards can manage only 7.3%.

But, surprisingly, only 45% of respondents say their companies view the supply chain as a strategic asset, and just 9% say the supply chain is helping them outperform their peers. That needs to change, because better supply chain efficiency has a measurable impact. Supply chain managers across the globe need to step up to their top management and claim their rightful place as one of the major elements in the success — or failure — of their company.

arviem can only support these findings from its work with clients and monitoring in real-time their shipments. In average arviem can contribute to a cost reduction in the suppyl chain of 7%.
We are happy, that our happy clients and an independent survey confirm our business.

Networked Supply Chains Require Better Visibility

As manufactures and retailers increasingly depend on extended rosters of sourcing companies, the resulting networked supply chain requires improved visibility. Importers are using multiple sourcing vendors to improve their ability to respond to market demand and opportunities. With this increased sourcing agility comes the increased risk of delivery failure due to a supply chain disruption and, concurrently, the increased importance of visibility into each step of the supply chain. The ability to in real time identify the location and status of the sourced goods gives the importer the ability to fine tune its distribution channels, its inventory management and its ability to fulfill commitments to its end users. The ability to real time monitor the status of goods requires a combination of container based technology, back-end business applications and an extended network of logistics fulfillment partners. In response to this emerging demand, many companies are offering RFID, GSM and si

While they are essential for the smooth operation of a company, supply chains come with inherent risks that, if not managed effectively, can have far-reaching consequences. This newsletter will explore how analytics can revolutionize supply chain management, mitigating risks and enhancing operational efficiency. Harnessing the Power of Predictive and Prescriptive Analytics Predictive analytics is the key to foreseeing future events, such as equipment failures or the precise amount of inventory needed based on sales forecasts.
