GEODIS Supply Chain Optimization initially focuses on identifying the unique opportunities your company has to transform your supply chain performance by reducing fixed and variable logistics costs, inventory holding, supply chain risk and working capital employed - while at the same time improving overall service. In turn, these operating savings mean that valuable resources can be diverted to your core business.
Companies in the High-Tech sector are looking for proactive shipment visibility, so they can manage logistics issues in real-time, whether in mature or fast-growing emerging markets. GEODIS meets these needs for end-to-end information with a single flow management platform.
