Reliability, Visibility and Quick Delivery: Building Resilience into the Supply Chain, a 2019 Report
Consumers in the modern world have the luxury of speedier deliveries and better visibility than many would have thought possible even 15 years ago. For chemical companies though, logistics has not entirely kept pace, and a wealth of complex factors can still wreak havoc. Supply chains need to be flexible enough to withstand the unexpected. In Q4 of 2018 WBR Insights and Alpega surveyed 100 VPs of Supply Chain from chemical companies across Europe to find out more about the challenges they face and the innovative solutions they bring to the table.
Defining Your Future Chemical Supply Chain Strategy
The market for chemical products is expected to grow to 5.6 trillion euros by 2035, more than doubling its current size. As the industry grows, so do the demands of its customers, who are increasingly expectant of add-on services and functionality in the products they buy. This is why chemical companies are moving towards making the customer the focus of the supply chain. But this customer centricity can’t be achieved without substantial investment. With the amount of EU regulations rocketing and buyers outsourcing labour to the East, keeping up with the competition will be more difficult than ever before. We surveyed 101 Heads of Supply Chain Management to find out how they’re adapting and what challenges they’re up against.
