A Supply Chain & Logistics Screening tailored to your needs

Prior to the Supply Chain & Logistics Screening, we determine the objectives and the scope of the investigation together with you. In the case of different company locations, we determine those that can generate representative results for the entire supply chain. By conducting interviews with your leaders, we can understand the individual circumstances of your company. Hereby, we include not only experts of supply chain and logistics management, but also from other departments. In addition, selected employees from all locations receive a questionnaire on key processes in the company. This is the only way to identify weaknesses and uncover relevant correlations. For our consultants, it is important to identify these in the first step of the screening and to describe them on the basis of key figures. In the second step, the consolidated KPIs are used to evaluate your company’s supply chain & logistics performance by comparing them with the strategic requirements. In this way, it is possible to understand the situation holistically and to determine which internal and external levers can be used to ensure the performance. Our passion is to provide you with customized solutions in the form of concrete actions possible to execute.

As a result, the supply chain performance is fully evaluated. Calculated KPIs enables a site benchmark. In addition, a qualitative assessment is carried out as part of a standardized questionnaire in the following categories:

  • IT infrastructure and digitalization
  • Planning processes and forecast
  • Physical material flow
  • Organizational structure
  • Resources
