Josh Heid

Events Director , Sit-Down


We recognise that organisations are experiencing increased sourcing complexity with extended global supply chains, increased product and supplier proliferation, longer lead times and increased supply risk. At the same time there’s an expectation to lower costs and increase service levels, while improving supply chain visibility and predictability and ensuring that supply chains meet ethical and environmental standards.


When developed independently Supply Chain and Procurement Strategies can have different goals (typically optimising gross margin versus net margin). This can inadvertently lead to conflicting objectives, incurring additional net cost and causing quality and service issues. By integrating Supply Chain and Procurement Strategies there is a real opportunity to increase both gross and net margins – and ultimately deliver a competitive advantage.
