Supply Chain Strategy

Supply Chain Strategy

Make your supply chain a source of competitive advantage

A big part of an energy company’s spend is on products and services it needs to do business. For example, purchased products and services account for over 50% of the average oil and gas company’s total costs, according to the Harvard Business Review. This eye-opening metric points to an inescapable fact: The success of your company is tied to the performance of your supply chain.

By extension, an integrated supply chain management (SCM) strategy, when aligned with your business strategy, can be a source of competitive advantage. Indeed, a Wall Street Journal article notes:

“Businesses are paying more in the realm of supply chain management in order to save more on their bottom line. SCM pays for itself many times over through implementing efficiencies and cost savings initiatives that are sustainable through process and controls.”

Stonebridge Consulting can help you develop and execute a supply chain strategy that provides a blueprint for fit-for-purpose SCM capabilities and best practices.
