A successful supply chain strategy is customer-centric
Optimization projects along the supply chain are very often focused on pure cost reduction. As a consequence, companies miss the opportunity to use their supply chain as a competitive advantage.
What good is your hard work closing a mayor deal only to learn that you are not able to deliver on time because your supply chain is not up to speed? This endangers future sales! Customers will switch to the competition. Without a clear and consequent supply chain strategy your supply chain will be your competitive disadvantage.
Besides clear cost and efficiency targets, additional performance criteria that reflect the needs of your customers are necessary. CAMELOT can help you to develop the right supply chain strategy so that your supply chain becomes your competitive advantage.
