Con­sumer Goods

The consumer goods industry has always focused on efficiency and responsiveness. Current consumer demands require that these industries rethink the manner in which their companies manufacture and distribute products. SKU proliferation with increased promotion activity, omnichannel designs, and increased collaboration along the supply chain are some of the challenges that must be resolved to be prepared for future growth.

Trends & Challenges

  • Enhanced collaboration among all parties in the supply chain to reduce cost and inventories as well as to ensure better service levels.
  • Redesign of the supply chain to integrate divisions and increase speed.
  • Shift in role of warehousing from traditional buffer to fulfillment centers to meet omni-channel requirements.
  • More effective distribution center and process design for fast deployment of facilities in line with global requirements and local needs.
  • Enhanced supply chain planning and faster production cycles to meet the challenges of demand volatility and SKU proliferation.
