Materials Supply Chain Design

Designing and implementing a world class global supply chain for your organisation.

Effective supply chain design will help ensure that you are using the best materials planning practice, maintaining optimal material levels and the right mix of intermediate assets (e.g. storage, inventory, etc.) along with the correct modes of transportation and the best routes.

Exertis Supply Chain Services has over 160 staff and 40 years of experience helping companies of all size and industry design, develop and implement highly effective and efficient global supply chain solutions.

OUR SUPPLY CHAIN DESIGN SERVICES INCLUDE:

FORECAST & SUPPLY DEMAND MANAGEMENT
We will take your specific demand forecast and deploy advanced planning techniques that take account of forecast vs. run rate, inbound material supply and current on-hand balances to position the correct amount of material based on agreed parameters. We provide judged demand information to support intelligent decision making and ensure you have optimal levels of inventory at all times.

PRODUCTION PLANNING & EXECUTION
As well as positioning materials, we will manage your production requirements directly within our value add centres or else support your existing geographical production operations by integrating with your existing planning processes.

INVENTORY CONTROL
We will design and manage the warehousing and storage policies & procedures for your raw materials, work-in-process inventories and final products. We will manage inventory availability on a regional or global basis as required.

DISTRIBUTION & LOGISTICS
We will design a best practice process for inventory management, transportation, and final delivery of your products from warehouse to retailers or direct to customers.

Designing an effective and efficient materials supply chain is essential for any organisation to effectively manage the forward flow of materials and backward flow of information.
