Supply Chain Consulting
Organizations are constantly seeking opportunities to optimize their overall value chain. 4D Supply Chain Consulting offers practical supply chain and logistics concepts as well as solutions to support clients’ sustainable improvement initiatives. We assist companies wanting to enhance their sustainable, cost-effective, efficient and safe supply chain operation. Our services cover the entire life cycle of the project or asset, from the early stages of pre-execution to execution and onwards to operating the asset, including decommissioning and restoration.
4D Supply Chain Consulting helps clients to:
- Minimize unnecessary costs due to inappropriate management of technical decisions
- Better identify and manage supply chain risks through better threat assessments
- Improve the Health, Safety, Security and Environment (HSSE) performance of supply chain operations
Principle tools to form successful supply chains are the setting of simple, clear, measurable and meaningful Key Performance Indicators (KPIs) as well as regular internal and external benchmarking exercises to compare operational performance. This will allow for a better understanding of the supply chain gaps compared to “best-in-class” performance and the relevant quantification. Striving for continuous improvement in managing successful supply chains, 4D Supply Chain Consulting helps to assess client’s performance gaps with:
- A quantitative performance review of key supply chain elements
- The clear identification of key gaps in performance
- The set of recommendations for actions
We help our clients in selecting the optimal Fourth Party Logistics (4PL) solution that suits the specific requirements of their business. Our focus is not only to extract the maximum value, but also to make the supply chains more competitive, safer and sustainable. Our services include the effective supply chain planning, which is aligned with the requirements through demand management.
With a proven record in delivering the highest standards in both theory and execution, we support organizations across the entire project or asset life cycle and solve clients’ end-to-end logistics and supply chain challenges. Our services range from fit-for-purpose assessments, assurance support and strategy development to sourcing requirements, logistics FTE provisions and logistics management solutions.
