Nominees for International Procurement Project of the Year 2018

This year we were shortlisted for the International Procurement Project of the Year Award, with Exertis Supply Chain projects representing 2 out of the 3 nominees:

  • Exertis Supply Chain Services – Renault European Showrooms
  • Exertis Supply Chain Services – Hyster-Yale Project
  • Ornua- (Project-undisclosed) 

Renault European Showrooms

An international in-store provider of music, digital signage, and interactive mobile marketing solutions approached Exertis SCS to support the fulfilment and installation of its products within the pan-European sites of a major automotive dealership. By outsourcing these elements to Exertis Supply Chain Service (SCS), our client was able to benefit from the following:

  • Reduced Total Cost of Install, Complexity & Capital Exposure   
  • Efficiency improvements
  • Better inventory management
  • Reduced E&O (Excess & Obsolescence) levels
  • Improved delivery quality and consistency
  • Improved process & process adherence
  • Central control (one partner delivering consistent pan-European solution

Hyster-Yale Project

Our second nomination was a result of our efforts in supporting Hyster-Yale; a  leading, globally integrated, full-line lift truck manufacturer. The initiative has had a direct positive impact on our client’s supply chain performance and sales volumes, specifically   resulting in:

  • Increased availability of materials inventory, enabling Hyster-Yale to meet aggressive production schedules, resulting in higher units sold and   maximised revenues.
  • Improved supply chain quality, with near zero product defects and shortages as a result.
  • An increase in Hyster-Yale’s overall daily production output.
