The Big Idea

Reduce logistics cost quickly to counter the industry downturn: To counter the downturn in the industries business cycle, the new CPO of a capital equipment manufacturer needs to reduce the cost base while building best-in class procurement capabilities at the same time.

Blueprint and Roadmap

We identified cost reduction opportunities in a balanced manner by applying a joint approach for the global logistics function and the business units.

We used our proven SCORE method to identify cost savings across 6 geographies (Europe, Africa, North America, South America and Australia/Asia). We conduct 6 Workshops across all these regions.

Creating Impact

  • Revision of all procurement categories
  • Cost savings exceeding the initial savings target identified
  • The identified cost savings and the SCORE approach has been handed over to enable the internal organisation for follow-up and implementation.

The Advantage

  • Our Industry expertise
  • Our Procurement expertise
  • Our practical, hands-on and results-focused approach
  • Our ability to bring together cross-functional and globally dispersed teams
