Network Optimization

Supply chain network optimization initiatives are often focused on improving service levels and reducing working capital across the end-to-end distribution network. But many companies fail to align their network optimization programs with the long-term business strategy and the larger value chain.

At GEP, this strategic alignment is the critical first step in defining and achieving a successful network optimization program.
