Let’s talk about your bottom line for a moment. Could you improve yours by using the supply chain to help generate more cash flow? More and more of our customers tell us that reducing capital and paying down debt is now a top priority for their businesses. Our experience in international supply chain management shows that the link between effective inventory management and corporate cash flow is significant. Taking a holistic approach to inventory management and examining each aspect, from raw materials to finished goods, can be the difference between tying up precious capital unnecessarily and freeing it up so that you can invest in opportunities that add real value to your organisation.
