Network & Supply Chain

Are you accountable for managing global supply and delivery chains? Are you faced with the challenge of aligning rapidly changing customer segments, new business models, growing service demands while cost reduction pressures increase? Do your customers and business units constantly expect better solutions so they improve performance?

Effective and efficient logistical networks are the backbone of your company’s success – now and in the future. Your responsibilities in purchasing and supply management are greater than ever.

The challenge is operating complex value creation networks on a global scale. Thousands of supply chains in procurement, supply, distribution, and waste management must be designed in line with the market realities and deliver consistent efficiency, a massive task regardless of your company’s size.

Our experts support you in the optimization and management of your international value creation networks with know-how from many industries, more than 20 years of implementation experience, and superb analytical competency.

We establish global network visibility: Comprehensive transparency and a concise examination of costs and service requirements at both strategy and process level. Benchmarking against companies in your industry vertical identifies competitive strengths, weaknesses, and opportunities. The results are best practices, remedial initiatives, and innovation.

The necessary information and knowledge is provided by Tim Consult’s leading market intelligence initiatives – based on the continuous input of over 100 world-class companies in all segments and evaluated by proven methodology and analytical tools, continuously improved since 1999.

Our capabilities help identify the strengths and weaknesses of your global supply chains and networks, set priorities, and secure critical stakeholder support.
