Case Study:


Accelerating Cash Flow Through Supply Chain Management

Challenge

Confronting escalating oil and gas prices, a manufacturer already knee-deep in operating cost reduction required more savings in supply chain and distribution costs in order to maintain investor confidence and return a profit.

What We Did

Developed and implemented a supply chain strategy:

  • Identified key supply chain profit drivers and fit with the company strategy
  • Developed win-win partnerships with supply chain partners (customers, suppliers, carriers etc.)
  • Jointly collaborated to develop supply chain programs to achieve the optimal combination of service/ quality and profits throughout the supply chain

Result

  • Lowered the supply chain cost structure while doubling inventory turns and maintaining/improving service levels
  • Reduced freight costs 50% while improving lead time performance for key customer
  • Significantly reduced overhead and supply chain costs with top Canadian distributor
  • Optimized truckload and warehousing efficiencies
