Aug 21, 2017

Category Overview

Today, warehouses have become a crucial aspect of the overall supply chain as they are points where the products are stored and distributed across the globe. According to our supply chain management specialists, it has been noted that the ongoing globalization and changes occurring in areas such as reverse logistics, information technology, environmental sustainability, and overall supply chain integration have resulted in the higher preference for warehousing services.

Consequently, to retain their foothold in the market, organizations across the globe have started evolving their roles, responsibilities and strategies for the warehouses. To streamline and maximize operations at strategically located facilities, organizations have started opting for supply chain management studies. Moreover, the supply chain management studies offered by SpendEdge, help auto parts manufacturers improve operations and transport links to plants and customers across the globe.

The Procurement Pain Point and Insights Offered

The new warehouse would help the auto parts manufacturing firm accommodate parts from other neighboring plants and supply them to their customers across the globe. They also wanted to set up a new warehouse space near their manufacturing facility, which could house parts from regional plants.request free proposal
