Logistics & Supply Chain

A healthy bottom line is increasingly dependent on sustainable supply chain strategies, not only to contain costs but also to generate value.

With increasing pressure to perform and deliver in an extremely competitive market, enterprises are looking beyond stop-gap solutions. Integrated supply chain management is increasingly in the spotlight.

Many consulting firms recommend supply chain frameworks to their clients but few of them go the extra mile to implement these solutions. Avalon Logistics & Supply Chain, through its long-term, multi-year partnerships, has an in-depth understanding of the business requirements for real-world success.

Supply Chain Strategy

Supply chain strategy often focuses on driving down operational costs and maximizing efficiencies – and this makes perfect sense. But what about value creation? Fact is a supply chain strategy can not only support business strategy, but also enable it.

And to be sure, with a sound supply chain strategy in place, any organization is better able to devise tactical steps to achieve its objectives.

When we work together to develop an effective supply chain strategy, we build on a shared understanding of your organization’s core competencies, areas of focus and means of differentiation.

Should you focus on a particular market or segment to gain supply chain efficiencies? Do you differentiate by providing the lowest cost to customers or providing services that other competitors cannot? We know that the most effective options align with your company’s brand and business strategy and your operation’s capabilities.

Improve Visibility through IT Infrastructure

Reduction in cost is important, however it is important not to lose sight of critical success factors such as future plans and customer’s needs. Correct approach requires finding the ‘optimum’ cost.

Optimum End to End Supply Chain Cost

Despite the obvious benefits of flexibility, companies that operate in complex environments such as international markets, face challenges in implementing the measures necessary to increase their agility. In such situations success is a factor of ‘Speed’ and ‘Flexibility’.

Flexibility for Business Strategy and Future Growth

Clearly defining customer metrics for each segment and making sure it meets end customers’ needs are the important enablers. Inventory management and alternate distribution channels are evolving for achieving superior service levels.
