The Procurement Pain Point
A leading paint manufacturer was looking for a detailed overview of the supply landscape of the global steel drums market. The client was facing challenges understanding the category landscape, cost components, pricing structure, and procurement best practices specific to the industry. Regardless of being one of the top players in the industry, the client lacked the expertise and tools to provide the sourcing team with insights on procurement best practices. Moreover, the client wanted a clear understanding of the latest supply market trends, pricing and costing overview, service level agreements, category risk analysis, and suppliers’ evaluation and selection criteria.
