Setting up an effective, crisis-proof supply chain.

In 2022 we started collaborating with a Danish online trading company for tools and equipment for off-shore companies. The main objective was to set up a reliable, cost effective and crisis-proof supply chain. For that we really had to dig deep and spend countless travelling hours trying to find Asia alternatives here in Europe.

The project services included:

Present supply chain discovery & analysis
Improving the supply chain strategy
Drafting and later on selecting TOP 5 EU suppliers
Portfolio analysis; following extension of portfolio
Supplier negotiations

Given the geo-political situation in the world and Europe we were pleased to take on this project as it later showed that our client actually depended on Asia suppliers way too much. Analysing the facts and calculating all numbers and risks involved it turned out that EU suppliers can not only be reliable but also cheaper.
