Accordingly, the industry must continue to focus upon reducing costs, in particular the “cost to serve” customers, together with capacity management.
The industry which has traditionally focused on volume and capacity utilisation, must also focus more on margin, and in turn this requires more innovation, in process, in an attempt to drive margin improvements.
