HOW DOES OUR ASSISTANCE WORK ?

The journey between suppliers and end customers is often global, complex, and dotted with countless risks in terms of loss of value due to errors, delays, unnecessary costs, inefficiency, or missed opportunities. To avoid these pitfalls, our expertise is based on 3 focuses with the organizations that our logistics consultants support. Our logistics consultants are quite aware of this and provide customized recommendations according to the situation.
IMPROVE RESPONSE AND AVAILABILITY

These days, customers expect increasingly fast delivery times. However, speed alone is not enough.

Reliability, responsiveness, and availability are the qualities that matter most to be competitive in today’s environment. To achieve this, a modern Supply Chain must be both fast and flexible.

It is therefore important to avoid an overly standardized approach and to tailor the responsiveness of the supply chain to the real problems of the customers. Not everyone needs immediate order processing or is willing to pay the price.

Customer and product segmentation must determine the appropriate service levels. The best supply chains have execution capacities that function at multiple speeds to serve each segment.

Our logistics consultants are quite aware of this and provide customized recommendations according to the situation.

ENSURE FULL VISIBILITY OF THE SUPPLY CHAIN

The goal of supply chain visibility is to obtain accurate information about how your Supply Chain is working while reducing the risks. Combine this information with user data collection, and you get a supply chain that can be optimized, and which is as efficient as possible.

At GCL, we believe that betterSupply Chain visibility can be achieved through various means. The common theme running through all these means is improving employee awareness.

From one end of the supply chain to the other, the employees have to be versatile. The more qualified eyes and ears you have on your team, the more fluid the logistics will be. Our Supply Chain consulting services therefore offers:

  • to train your employees on the best technologies to efficiently track products at all times;
  • to invest in the skills' development of your employees at all levels;
  • to focus on operational flow for fast and efficient decisions.
MINIMIZING THE OVERALL IMPACT

Due to its scope and complexity, the Supply Chain has a significant impact on the environment. The supply chain encompasses the entire creation process and the goods distribution network.

While value chain modeling can encourage companies to keep costs low and processes fast, it can also have adverse consequences.

From sourcing raw materials to create products to the way these finished products are transported to their final destination, the supply chain may use many valuable and non-renewable resources at each stage of the process.

4 STEPS TO IMPROVE YOUR SUPPLY CHAIN

Talking about the importance of a sustainable supply chain and creating one are two very different things.

However, if you have foresight and planning, it may not be as hard as it seems. At GCL, we believe that there are 4 steps to follow to get there:

  1. Conduct a diagnosis of the scope of your project
  2. Propose recommendations based on your objectives
  3. Select the best solutions for your projects
  4. Support your project at all stages of the process
