Lean Procurement® Strategy – How it Helps Supply Chain Optimization

The journey towards Supply Chain Optimization includes streamlining the processes in multiple departments. One important process is for the procurement of a multitude of repetitive supplies needed to run your business.

The Lean Procurement strategy delivers a comprehensive solution by optimizing the procurement of a wide range of low value, high velocity supplies that are necessary to run your business every day.

These supplies include: packaging, janitorial, safety, breakroom and office items.

The procurement of these commodities consumes an inordinate amount of time relative to their value. Your procurement team should be freed up to be able to spend more time on more valuable projects like raw materials, freight costs etc.

The category of supplies offer by Consumers Interstate Corp is a low risk group. Successfully optimizing the procurement of these supplies is a good first step towards achieving Supply Chain Optimization.

The Lean Procurement strategy does just that.
