Global Docks has the forward-thinking approach you need for your warehouse operations with our effective supply chain management.
Supply Chain Management Defined
Supply chain management is a business-focused approach to governing an organization’s product from start to finish efficiently and transparently. Raw materials convert into finished goods and reach clients quickly. Supply chain management benefits customers and stakeholders because customers receive their orders on time while the company generates profits.
The Steps of Efficient Supply Chain Management
Every business owner wants to know how to effectively manage their supply chain to cut down on production costs, gain more profits, and help their business grow astronomically. However, it can be hard to wear multiple hats with all the other things you have to deal with as a business owner.
You’ve done the hard work of creating valuable, marketable products. Now, allow Global Docks to help you effectively manage your supply chain. We can help in the following ways:
- Determining what the supply chain management process will look like, setting realistic goals, and providing the tools and technology required to streamline the process
- Implementing strategies while understanding a facility’s constraints, determining how much particular methods will cost, and calculating the return on investment (ROI)
- Executing the process from start to finish by establishing supply chain partners and vendors, managing inventory, and optimizing distribution
- Ensuring that inventory levels remain steady and that the entire process runs smoothly and consistently
- Monitoring key performance indicators (KPIs), ensuring that the operations’ performance aligns with a company’s objectives
Different Supply Chain Models
Global Docks has a long list of clients from all over the world. We’ve been a leader in supply chain services for over two decades. Companies have unique supply chains; we’re adaptable and flexible enough to accommodate these variances. Here are a few examples of the supply chain models that we manage:
- Continuous flow model: This model works well for companies that produce the same products without much variation. The products are typically high-in-demand and don’t require much of a redesign. Since there are few fluctuations, managers can streamline production times with our help and control inventory tightly.
- Fast chain model: Are you a company that likes to keep up with the latest trends? If so, you’ll need to get your products to market quickly, which we can help you do. With our supply chain services, you can quickly move an idea from prototype to production to customer.
- Flexible model: Are you a company that manufactures seasonal or holiday products? If so, you most likely experience high surges in product demand with long periods of little to no demand. We can help you more accurately forecast your raw materials, inventory, and labor needs.
