Supply Chain Managament

  • Sustainability is not just a trend, but one of the major tasks of today. This is why companies are striving to improve their environmental balance sheets and are actively working towards reducing their harmful emissions. A first or additional step in this respect is the offsetting of carbon emissions. But which measures actually serve their purpose? We have the answer.

  • For many years, companies have organized manufacturing, procurement and logistics processes according to the principles of lean management. Lean and cost-efficient – this is how production and supply chains should be designed. However, in view of the current challenges in the global trade and transport of goods, agile models are now gaining in importance. So what is supply chain agility and how can companies use it to boost their success?

  • For many years, the Just-in-Time model has been considered a success driver. In the crises of recent years it became apparent that the method also has disadvantages. Thus, the just-in-case method, suddenly had a comeback. But which method is suitable for whom – and do companies really have to decide? We want to provide fundamental answers to these questions.

  • The threat that is presented to supply chains by cybercrime has increased in recent years. As a result, a growing number of companies are addressing the potential risks and taking security measures. The focus has shifted in particular to the security of customer and employee data.

  • To ensure long-term competitiveness, companies must integrate ecological and social criteria into their target systems and their decisions. So where can companies start? Anna Schuldt, business analyst and sustainability expert at Hermes International, advises those in charge to be anything, but afraid of the task.

  • Not only consumers and politicians, but also a growing number of companies see sustainable business as future-oriented. This was confirmed by the figures of the latest Hermes Barometer. Almost three quarters of the logistics managers surveyed believe that they can only remain competitive by implementing environmentally responsible criteria. Alas, there are more reasons why companies are increasingly focusing on a green supply chain.
