The manufacturing of transportation equipment such as aircraft, locomotives, passenger trains, and trucks has one of the most complex supply chains imaginable. Its complexity is due to the large variety of products, long production lead times, and increasing storage and transportation costs. Although it seems as if there is no common ground between these industries, there’s certainly a lot that can be learned and implemented from one to the other.
Sometimes, having a good relationship with your suppliers can be a difficult proposition. Strategically planned interactions with third party organizations have to be precisely executed in order to maximize the value of the desired synergies.
These terms are mostly related to end-to-end visibility and a supply chain's performance, although a robust Center of Excellence is a much more complex concept.
The Center of Excellence consolidates all operations and supply chain process expertise into a single location. This location would not only include logistics experts but also Procurement, Global Trade Compliance, Finance and Planning, Order to Cash, Engineering, Network Optimization, Business Intelligence and IT. All of these unique functions, working in harmony, will make it easier for our clients to do business with us while providing additional value to our Customer’s Supply Chain.
