From June 2020 onwards the container freight market went into chaos. Dow decided to change the processes and tools it uses for booking and shipping cargo in containers to cope with this situation. It allowed Dow to become nimbler, reduce inventory and serve its customers better.
The new work process and further digitalisation of the tools used allowed Dow to move the MPC-space (Marine Packed Cargo) to a state-of-the-art, modern application.
Sustainability in the Supply Chain is a critical priority, which can only be achieved with collaboration. As the WEF says, “Supply Chain management is a “team sport”. Collaboration benefits global supply chains not just in higher service levels, more product availability and significant reductions in costs but also in accelerated and innovative approaches to Sustainability.
Developing continuous improvement initiatives with internal and external stakeholders is the key point for productivity increase and cost reduction within the supply chain. With this presentation, we intend to deliver some tools currently used to reduce waste (costs) and add value to the supply chain.
