Shaping Transformation

Optimising Supply Chain

Global Construction Supplies Distributor

Oaklin was engaged by a global construction supplies distributor to drive efficiencies and consistency into their complex and disparate international supply chain.

Oaklin deployed a small team of senior consultants to shape, mobilise and deliver a programme of work to redesign and standardise sourcing, procurement and logistics processes for businesses across the Group, operating in North America, Europe and Asia.

In addition, the team deployed a group-wide cloud-based supply chain management platform to drive process control, and trade compliance. To complement this, the team delivered a data analytics capability that takes inputs from the supply chain management platform, allowing business units to reduce supply chain costs by £15M per annum through the insights provided into their direct product and service spend.
