Ensuring supply security in global logistics networks presents a major challenge for businesses. To keep companies competitive, it is necessary to find cost-effective solutions to guarantee in-house production and give due consideration to significant competitive factors such as short delivery times, delivery reliability and the availability of goods.
There are many possibilities to influence the development of logistics costs and service levels. Finding the perfect inventory size to minimize capital commitment and warehousing costs while maintaining high availability is a key influencing factor, albeit not the only one. Something as simple as the right packaging design alone makes it possible to transport and store goods efficiently and to save on both costs and capacity.
Global procurement strategies can enable low purchasing prices, although these often disguise the hidden risk of high subsequent costs for transport and warehousing. To achieve efficient goods procurement and inventory regulation, it is necessary to analyze delivery quantities, times and frequencies and match them to a company's needs.
