For customers/buyers and vendors/sellers, I work with organizations to define, develop, and document supply chain requirements to enable the interaction between supply chain partners. This reduces costs, improves engagement, increases efficiency, and decreases risk within supply chain relationships.
Expertise and experience in retail (a specialty!), pharmaceutical, medical products, publishing, marine, electronics, and government verticals.
Improving your down-stream supply chain relationships with your vendors increases initiative adoption rates, speeds initiative adoption time frames, reduces operating costs due to variations, and provides more insights into supply chain activities.
Becoming a less disruptive supply chain partner (manufacturer, distributor, 3PL) is an anti-competitive strategy where execution is everything. The supply chain requirements your customers mandate can be used to improve your own business operations, transforming a cost into an investment. Optimizing down-stream supply chains using vendor compliance increases performance, lowers costs, and improves visibility.
