This company operates in the aerospace industry and belongs to a large international group. It specializes in manufacturing non-ferrous metal alloys in several forms.
In this increasingly competitive business sector, the company decided to launch a continuous improvement program in order to develop its competitiveness and respond more rapidly to client requests. As a highly strategic commodity for the company, road transport is one of its most significant costs.
Moreover, the newly-created Purchasing Department did not have the capacity (in terms of workload) to conduct this type of call for tender. My objectives were therefore:
- To help the Purchasing Manager find a reliable partner to manage road transport for the company’s clients as well as its subcontractors in France and Europe.
- To manage of flows from the company’s production sites in order to satisfy its highly-demanding clients in terms of quality and on-time delivery.
- To contribute to optimizing costs and ensuring better control of road transport expenses.
