FMCG supply chains

Responsiveness = profitability

In FMCG, your ability to respond to supply chain challenges with speed has a major impact on your profitability

In a sector characterised by volatile forecasts, seasonality, promotion planning, short lead times and high inventory turnover a strong sales and operations planning process will empower you to:

  • Deliver on time, in full, wherever and whenever
  • Optimise capacity utilisation while meeting demand
  • Right-size inventory levels
  • Mitigate operational risks
  • Seize market opportunities 
  • Minimise scrap
