Factor 6. An important figure for us and for you.
Based on the average European profit-level of 7,3%, every 1% reduction in procurement and logistics costs results in a 6% increase of your net profit. This multiplier is the basis of our approach. We, together with your staff, will raise the effectiveness of your supply chain. More than 80 percent of the transformation processes get stuck because the involved staff don’t perceive the changes as improvements. The inertness of an organisation is underestimated over and over again. In this matter we make a difference. We have the quality of being a good sparring partner as well as a commercial entrepreneur. We possess organisation-sensitiveness and we are leading by setting the right example and having the required authority and expertise to make decisions.
