Is the Day-to-Day Getting in Your Way?
Do you ever look at bigger companies and wish you had the in-house skills and resources they can apply to supply chain problem solving?
In smaller businesses, such luxuries rarely exist, and even though you probably know improvement opportunities are present in your supply chain, the day-to-day all too often gets in the way of unearthing and exploiting them.
You want to focus on finding these opportunities…
You plan to fix those supply chain and logistics issues that cost your business unnecessary time and money…
You even try taking initiatives, only to have them lose traction before you can make any headway.
And so those opportunities remain untapped, waiting for a “later” than never materialises.
Sound familiar? It’s a typical problem for businesses in the sub-$150 million turnover category.
What Improvement Opportunities Lie Untapped in Your Supply Chain?
In the Warehouse
- Inappropriate warehouse layouts
- Inefficient processes and workflows
- Order management problems
In Inventory Management
- Unsuitable balance of A, B, and C inventory categories
- Inadequate inventory visibility
- Returns management challenges
- Carrier selection issues
- A Lack of carrier performance management
- Use of sub-optimal carrier rate structures
In the case of many of these function-centric problems, it is a deficit in the expertise and resources needed to identify and correct them that leaves them unresolved, even though the fixes are often reasonably straightforward.
Then there are more general supply chain management concerns, such as…
- Profit leaks: Some of your supply chain or logistics-related processes and policies may be inflating, rather than reducing, your costs, causing your business to leak profits.
- Education: In smaller businesses, employees have a wider range of responsibilities, and need education to help them understand the big picture and how, as individuals, they can contribute to overall performance improvement.
Again, though, awareness of these concerns is probably not lacking in your business, but perhaps the expertise and resource to address them is simply not available.
