The pillars of a sustainable, stable supply chain
“The basis of everything we do is serving our customers as best we can, and better than our competitors. It’s a pillar we’ve built, should cherish and continuously improve,” Martijn asserts. “That’s why we are actively enhancing our forecasting, stock management, and sales and operations planning. Greater predictability will allow us to staff warehouses more efficiently, adjust forecasts for carriers, adjust purchase volumes, know where to allocate project finances and so on.
“Technology is another pillar. We will be phasing out legacy systems and at the same time refining our business processes for our new systems so we serve our customers better; supply chain technology integrations, too, are a vital focus for the future.”
