Supply Chain Controlling
Transparency of total product and logistical costs is needed at all times. Not just to support and drive change, decrease working capital at acceptable levels and optimise the profitability. But also to put forward ideas on the future supply chain strategy of the business, particularly around capital investment, and to look at practical options as to how these can be implemented.
Focus on future raw material prices and trends in order to analyse current and future spend and determine the level of price increases needed to sustain margin. Crucial in understanding global profits is a simple IUP (Inter unit pricing) between entities that is first of all tax compliant in all regions but secondly minimises duties paid and corporation tax.
Of course the supply chain structures and processes need to be applied consistently across regions/sites. This is the focus of our interim approach.
