Deloitte is a global, industry-wide leader in supply chain and manufacturing operations, delivering help to companies around the world as they look to integrate business strategies with better supply chain initiatives and drive improved operational excellence.

The company’s wealth of industry experience helps it to cover all new product development, inventory strategy and integrated demand planning, sourcing and commodity management, manufacturing footprint strategy and operations, distribution network and logistics optimisation, and sustainability under its portfolio of solutions.

Deloitte uses a series of programmatic approaches to leverage the capabilities of its analytics, helping it to offer managed services to drive improved top-line growth, lower costs, a reduction in response times, and an increase in productivity across business operations.

As companies around the world continue to embark on linear transformations of their sequential supply chains, in a bid to create innovative digital supply networks (DSNs), the importance of ecosystem partners and effective planning becomes amplified. Synchronised planning and fulfillment helps businesses to monitor data flows continuously, enabling the accurate planning of production to meet actual demand, and creates a more dynamic and flexible supply network with much greater efficiency.

Manufacturers must ensure that they are prepared strategically for anything to have a competitive edge over their competitors. Deloitte provides manufacturers and supply chain leaders with supply chain and manufacturing operations solutions, helping translate practical operational plans into effective strategies.

By finding ways to improve operational performance across complex value chains, Deloitte helps companies around the world implement new strategies and find value in new places. Manufacturing capacity, core versus noncore products, the location where products are made, the location of manufacturing sites, and their supply bases that support them are all covered by the Deloitte solutions, covering as far as advanced manufacturing technologies.

Deloitte’s six steps to synchronised planning and fulfillment

Businesses can benefit significantly from synchronised planning and fulfillment strategies. They can enable reconfigured supply chain planning and fulfillment ecosystems, and help organisations to drive continuous growth and optimisation.
