The 500 acre United Kingdom site is one of the petrochemicals company's major production centers. To examine and health check the downstream supply chain from the UK site, as well as the distribution center facilities in mainland Europe and deliveries to customers worldwide, the petrochemical company required an external perspective and expert recommendations around site logistics activities; product route-to-market; supplier selection; and potential 'Optimization' prize in respect of ?50 million estimated supply chain spend. To review the business's forward supply chain provision, Agility delivered a three-phase consultancy program through which Agility identified nine improvement projects to create greater efficiency, and deliver nearly ?6 million of savings. Agility won a follow-up contract to work with the petrochemicals company's teams in order to facilitate delivery of the improvement projects.
