What is Supply Chain?

The expression “supply chain” was created during the 1980’s to explain the need to integrate important business processes.

Indeed, supply chain is about integration between business functions and business processes. It is about giving all the information which is important for any services in the industry and for partners of the company such as suppliers, retailers and so on…

In supply chain, there is a global and not a local optimisation.

The idea is to optimize the entire supply chain and not only results of the firm. A good supply chain involves a strong collaboration between actors of the supply chain. Therefore, there is a change of scale concerning competition; it is not a competition between firms but rather a rivalry between types of supply chains. Moreover, we have to show clearly the difference between logistics and supply chains because there is often confusion about these two words.

Logistic is a term which applies for the activity of a company. It involves just the distribution of the product whereas supply chain includes logistic, suppliers, manufacturers, retailers… “Supply chain” is a vast concept which has to be well understood in order to manage to have a good overview of potential problems and advantages of this sector.

What are the perspectives for the future Supply Chain?

According to a KPMG study, the priority for firms towards their suppliers remains costs, but there are also new priorities which appear such as shares of knowledge, skills and resources.

In the near future, most firms claim that they want a more integrated supply chain with more responsibilities for suppliers concerning stocks. Firms are looking for safe partnerships with their suppliers and they use financial audits to be sure of their partners. Moreover, there are more and more concerns about intellectual property. Furthermore, we can notice a strong wish of firms to control more and more supply chain. For instance, in 2008, Carlos Ghosn, CEO of Renault-Nissan said: “We are not anymore in a world where logistics follow”.

The future Supply Chain has to be flexible. To reach this purpose, supply chain managers must have safe suppliers and integrate actors of the supply chain. This shows that Supply Chain’s evolution is at the heart of concerns for the near future. Supply Chain of the future would be flexible, safe and with a strong partnership between different actors of the chain.

Green Supply Chains

Nowadays, Supply Chains have become more visible and more global, and the question about their impact on the environment and global sustainability is increasing. Authors created this practical road map to include this green dimension in supply chains.

You want to manage a Supply Chain and you care about the environment? Start by asking five fundamental questions about your supply chains and what you expect from it. This book, Green Supply Chain – An Action Manifesto, could help you in your choices, your reasoning, and your project thanks to a deep analysis.

“What are the tangible and intangible benefits of moving towards a green supply chain?
Green-Supply-Chains-195x300

  • What are the costs, both direct and indirect?
  • What influence do we have over our suppliers, their suppliers and our customers that would allow us to jointly work together and move the supply chain towards a green supply chain?
  • How will we communicate and measure our progress towards the green supply chain to the key stakeholders? How will we engage them?
  • What barriers to green supply chains can be expected and how can these be overcome?”

However authors’ analysis has revealed four key additional points to go further in your understanding of this new problematic:

  1. “Companies are still primarily focused on environmentally conscious internal production. Any company can become totally carbon neutral by outsourcing all its production. Shifting the carbon producing activity up or down the supply chains does nothing more than hide the dirt under someone else’s carpet. A holistic approach to carbon management is required, and this is provided by adoption of Green Supply Chain methodology.
  2. Environmental pro-activism is generally assumed to come at an additional cost to the corporations. It is widely thought that going green is expensive. On the contrary, our modelling indicates that adoption of Green supply Chain methodology should result in overall cost reduction providing this is done in a thorough and logical manner.
  3. Most business models are focused on growing the volume of their current offerings of goods or services to increase profits. A change in this focus towards providing customer end outcomes will not only reduce the impact on the environment, but also secure and/or increase market share whilst improving profitability.
  4. Well beyond mainstream business thinking on environmental impact of technology, our discussions with Professor Ernst von Weizsacker (co-author of the book “Factor Four; Doubling Wealth, Halving Resource Use” 1998, with Amory & Hunter Lovins) highlight a radical concept aimed at doubling wealth, whilst concurrently halving resource consumption through innovative technological push. The implications for Green Supply Chains and for business performance more generally, are staggering. However, in the rest of this book, our conclusions are based on current technological limitations whilst noting that the “Factor 4” thinking and its associated technological push would actually multiply the benefits significantly; if brought into practice.”

If you want to launch this project, you will see that a move to Green Supply Chains is not only necessary for sound environmental management, but it is also profitable and provides sound financial management. If you feel ready to make the move, this book will provide you with a clear strategic overview and actionable plan for the implementation of Green Supply Chains.

Green Supply Chains – A CEO’s Handbook

Father of Modern Supply Chains unleashes another world first: “Green Supply Chains – A CEO’s handbook”

As the world leaders from more than 160 countries come together in Bali this week to do something tangible and positive about the climate change, the business is increasingly feeling the pressure to make a significant contribution.

Green Supply Chains – A CEO’s Handbook – available at a fee from Global Supply Chain Group discusses how corporations can drive their supply chains green with a positive bottom-line impact. In 1978 when Dr. Wolfgang Partsch embarked on a journey through snow in Swiss Alps to his clients Landis and Gyr’s office in Switzerland , little did he know that the brainwave that struck him while using snow chains would unleash a tsunami of supply chain literature.

Since that eventful day more than 25 years ago, with its huge impact on the business Supply Chain has earned its rightful place in the boardrooms across the world. Wolfgang himself has accomplished more than 100 projects with large multinational corporations around the world, adding more than $2 billion dollars of value in the process. Not that he talks a lot about it. When the world credits you as the father of modern supply chains, you don’t have to blow your own trumpet.

Moreover, his eyes are always fixed firmly on the future. Dr. Wolfgang Partsch, now a senior partner with Global Supply Chain Group, based in Munich , Germany says “literally, the hottest issue today is Global Warming, and the business needs to play its role in finding a solution – along with the public and the governments. Our extensive modeling reveals that the businesses stand to gain overall if they decide to move systematically and collaboratively to Green Supply Chains.

Our report shows the ways how. It should be on the bookshelf of every CEO and progressive manager.” With increasing pressure to be environmentally friendly in their businesses, the managers are finding the noise related to what is green, and what is not – slightly contradictory. A case in point is the practice of Lean Manufacturing. By cutting waste it helps corporations become more ‘green’. However, the Just-in-Time delivery practice all increases the number of deliveries, increasing the environmental impact.

“Any corporation can become carbon neutral by outsourcing every carbon producing activity. To create real and tangible positive impact on the environment smart corporations are thinking beyond the traditional boundaries and reaping huge dividends in the public relations war” said Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group based in Sydney, Australia.

Potential for Green Supply Chains has long been recognized and acknowledged. However, many reasons have impeded the adoption of green supply chain principals by corporations. One of the reasons has been lack of comprehensive methodology and tool kit to make it happen. Global Supply Chain Group has now released its new report titled Green Supply Chains – A CEOs handbook.

This report is based on the proprietary research, interviews with more than key 100 executives, original case studies, green system and process mapping, and nearly 12 man-months of original analysis by top-tier strategy consulting caliber analysts. It gives a holistic view of the green supply chains through the decades, traces how business and supply chains have always moved in lock-step with each other and creates a map of future of the green supply chains. It also takes into account the trends, the capabilities, the changing business needs, and geo-political realities to create a holistic view of Green Supply Chains and their key elements.

This report helps answer the 5 key questions one needs to answer in order to move your supply chains towards green supply chains:

  1. What are the tangible and intangible benefits of moving towards green supply chains?
  2. What are the costs – both direct, and indirect?
  3. What influence do we have over our suppliers, their suppliers and our customers that would allow us to jointly work together and move the supply chain towards a green supply chain?
  4. In our end to end supply chain, which party has the most influence? How can we encourage them to think ‘green’? Why?
  5. How will we communicate our progress towards the green supply chain to the key stakeholders? How will we engage them?
  6. More details on the report are available by contacting Global Supply Chain Group on the address given below.

Shanghai Expo – Green Supply Chains

shanghai-expo_green-supply-chainsWhile showcasing the trade, industrial and transportation capabilities of the nations of the world, Shanghai Expo has scored another

hit. Millions of visitors from around the world have flocked to this great city to visit the miracle of modern commerce.

What they find encouraging is the emphasis on green and environmental consciousness all through the expo. Aligned with the expo are the trade and cultural exhibitions, talks and discussions bringing in experts from around the world to discuss topics of high interest to the eclectic mix of visitors to this great city called ‘The Pearl of the Orient’.

Recently, the city hosted a discussion on Green Supply Chains bringing in experts from as far afield as Australia, UK, Singapore and Malaysia.

Speaking at the forum, Mr. Vivek Sood, Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group, a strategy consulting and supply chain management services firm headquartered in Sydney, said ‘while Europe is no doubt the clear leader in the race towards Green Supply Chains’, China is making massive progress in this field. At this rate I would not be surprised to see that China will surpass Europe in 10-15 years, if they continue to lay emphasis on Green Supply Chain at the highest level of corporate and governmental policy making’.

He also emphasized that while most corporations wait for new regulations before they make moves towards Green Supply Chains, the clear winners have a deliberate strategy to make their supply chains green and save massive costs at the same time.

The large audience enthusiastically endorsed Mr. Sood’s comments and asked a large number of questions about the techniques of Green Supply Chain. Mr. Sood not only encouraged an open discussion on the topic but also invited audience to either write to him or read the book ‘Green Supply Chains – An Action Manifesto’ which is co-authored by him and is available at most good book stores and online.

Workshops on Green Supply Chain

Workshops on Green Supply Chain Shows the Path Towards Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) and Sustainability

works-on-300x150Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) Managers and the Sustainability Managers in corporations around the world are faced with a tough task. On one hand their mandate is make sure that the corporation is ‘doing the right thing’ in the societies that it functions in.

On the other hand, the profit motives driving Operational Managers leaves them with very little real influence in the operations of the business. At the same time numerous Operational Managers have their heart in the right place but suffer from lack of time, know-how and mis-information about going green.

The belief that going green is costly is endemic in today’s business mind-set and hinders decisive positive action. The bust of Copenhagen again showed that the positive action towards environmental cleanup will most probably come from corporations acting in their own self-interest and in response to public demand. It is also increasingly clear that now many corporations are leading the way towards CSR though concerted action.

What is not yet clear is that without a concerted action across the end-to-end supply chain, most ‘green’ projects achieve less than 50% of the full potential – both in terms of emission reduction, and in terms of cost savings. The reason is self-evident.

As, Mr. Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group based in Sydney, Australia likes to point out “Any corporation can become carbon neutral by outsourcing every carbon producing activity.” Potential for Green Supply Chains has long been recognized and acknowledged. However, many reasons have impeded the adoption of green supply chain principals by corporations.

One of the reasons has been lack of comprehensive methodology and tool kit to make it happen. Having recently co-written a published book (titled GREEN SUPPLY CHAINSAN ACTION MANIFESTO) on this topic Mr. Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group says his company is taking further action to make the knowledge more readily available through a series of workshops.

The first of these workshops, titled SUSTAINABLE SUPPLY CHAIN WORKSHOP was held in Sydney, Australia on 18th of June 2010 was heralded as great success by all participants. Participants lauded the extremely high quality of information, a very positive interaction and opportunity to learn from world experts on the area and from each other.

The workshops are designed to stimulate discussions on the following type of questions:

  1. Are you ready for Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) audits? Do you have verifiable, auditable data to support the claims of green house gas reduction activity within your company?
  2. How can you use our Green Supply Chain Methodology and tool kit to enhance your company’s profits? Does going green have to cost extra?
  3. What green supply chain projects are your competitors considering at the moment? When will they disclose these to the industry and media? How will these projects affect the industry perception, pecking order and profitability?
  4. How can you establish your company as the leader in green supply chains and CSR while making great profits? Do you want your employees, suppliers, media and customers singing the praises of your CSR results?
  5. What liability are you exposing yourself, your board, your organisation to without a verifiable record set? What tools and methodologies do you need to make sure you are covered?

After outstanding success of the first workshop, further workshops are planned in the other state capital cities in Australia and major cities in the Asia-Pacific region. More details on the workshops are available by contacting Global Supply Chain Group on the address given below.

Supply Chain Asia Annual Forum 2009 in Singapore

Supply Chain Asia Annual Forum 2009 in Singapore is a huge success with a talk on Green Supply Chain by Vivek Sood of Global Supply Chain Group

Sharing the stage were senior executives and thought leaders from various walks of life: Mr. Vivek Sood – Managing Director of Globaal Supply Chain Group, Peter O’Brien – Head, Asia Pacific Distribution & Supply Chain Practices, Russell Reynolds Associates, and Associate Professor Mark Goh – Director, Industry Research, The Logistics Institute Asia Pacific. The topic was Green Supply Chains – an topic on which Mr. Sood had recently written a book. The venue was the Annual Forum of Supply Chain Asia in 2009 at Sheraton Hotel in Singapore. Panel discussion was very informative and audience was passionately engaged in the discussion. Mr. Sood pointed out that “Greenwashing is giving a bad name to attempts of multi-national corporations to create Green Supply Chains. Any corporations can be completely carbon neutral. All it has to do is outsource every carbon producing activity to third parties.” This further encouraged an end-to-end supply chain sustainability discussion among the audience who wanted to know what is the best way to get started and to sustain momentum. Mr. Sood indicated that the book GREEN SUPPLY CHAIN – AN ACTION MANIFESTO covered precisely this detail and was going to be released soon world-wide by its publishers – John Wiley and Sons.

Global Leaders in Taiwan – Green Supply Chains

Green Supply Chains – A CEO’s Handbook presented to global leaders in Taiwan

Cutting edge academic research in Green Supply Chain is very sparse. Even rarer is an actionable handbook giving comprehensive know-how on achieving green supply chains. Global Supply Chain Group’s presentation at the Green Supply Chains Workshop organized by the National Tsing Hua University in Hsin-chu was a world first combination of the two. “Any corporation can become carbon neutral by outsourcing every carbon producing activity. To create real and tangible positive impact on the environment smart corporations are thinking beyond the traditional boundaries and reaping huge dividends in the public relations war” said Vivek Sood, the Managing Director of Global Supply Chain Group based in Sydney, Australia Potential for Green Supply Chains has long been recognized and acknowledged. However, many reasons have impeded the adoption of green supply chain principals by corporations. One of the reasons has been lack of comprehensive methodology and tool kit to make it happen.

This report is a big step in furthering that discussion. It should be on the bookshelf of every progressive manager.” More details on the report are available by contacting Global Supply Chain Group on the address given below.
