SCApath works with consumer goods companies to eliminate waste in distribution and transportation while ensuring goods are on-time, in-stock, and compliant.
onsumer goods make up over half of U.S. GDP and range from garden tools to cosmetics to lighting accessories. They are sold in specialty stores, big box retailers, on-line, overseas, and outlets most prominently. Shippers typically sell through multiple channels with heterogeneous order requirements with significant product sourced internationally. These conditions create uncertainty and complexity which lead to imbalances in inventory, labor, and capacity.
We help customers examine their extended supply chain to reduce the ‘bull whip’ effect on safety stock by finding the right push/pull boundary for product categories. Our consultants combine ‘hands-on’ experience with the unique challenges of the consumer goods supply chain with best-fit operating practices and technology to deliver performance.
