Customer expectations, variability in demand, economic pressures and disruptions are forcing companies to re-evaluate their current approach to the supply chain. Gone are the days of the supply chain being viewed as a cost center. Re-envisioning the supply chain to capture value and adapt to shifting challenges requires transformation and integration across all of your enterprise functions.
PwC is helping companies develop connected supply chains that unify processes across the organization by implementing new capabilities that deliver seamless customer and consumer experience. We challenge you to think about the art of the possible while taking a pragmatic approach that can work in practice, not just in design. The results are focused on an end-to-end connected supply chain that can unlock value and drive profitable growth.
Our team of professionals can help you evolve your supply chain to solve for growth, cost reduction, risk and resilience, and human centricity driving high degree of change adaption.
A combination of volatile cost trends, supply chain disruptions, and resource scarcity are creating significant challenges for supply chain logistics. As companies look to reshore or near-shore manufacturing and supply base for better visibility and control, they should deal with major supply configuration changes. Also to be considered are digital channels creating complexity with fulfillment, which must now be done in near real time and across channels.
An advantaged logistics function is critical to mitigating these market challenges with a focus on achieving profitable growth. PwC’s top-ranked team has years of industry and consulting experience solving these complex challenges with key services, including:
High volatility in consumer demand and behaviors, accelerated omni-channel growth and renewed pressure to manage costs combine to create significant challenges that translate directly to bottom line impacts.
Fundamental to these challenges is a need for organizations to gain greater visibility into end-to-end operations to drive customer experience, control costs and manage risks. PwC helps solve these challenges by linking everything together with mobility solutions, 5G and FID for data acquisition and multi-tenant cloud platforms that allow real time data collection and exchange. Our capabilities include:
Demand and supply signals have been extremely volatile since the years of the pandemic. Slowing economic growth, inflation and higher interest rates has only increased the demand uncertainties and increased expenses associated with holding inventory and paying labor and transportation costs. The "Amazon effect" has created lofty expectations around speed and fill rates across all industries and this requires new supply chain planning capabilities. Supply chain organizations are now being forced to reexamine their capabilities and find a cost efficient way of integrating and balancing these elements in a dynamic environment.
