Supply Chain & Network Operations

Deloitte can help you imagine, deliver, and run your supply networks to address tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities—providing a platform for generating critical insights, optimizing business processes, and automating supply chain activities across your value chain.

Traditional, linear supply chains are evolving into sets of dynamic, IoT-enabled digital supply networks (DSNs). The perennial supply chain pressures of boosting productivity, supporting innovation, and moving faster—with more agility—become even more important as new business models, markets, and competitors emerge. In a digital economy, digital supply networks become imperative.

Deloitte’s Supply Chain & Network Operations practice can help you imagine, deliver, and run your digital supply networks to address tomorrow’s challenges and opportunities—providing a platform for generating critical insights, optimizing business processes, and automating supply chain activities across your value chain.

We tackle organizations’ most complex issues by drawing on global capabilities that span all areas of business strategy and operations across industries such as consumer and industrial products, resources, financial services, telecom, and healthcare.

Our world-class supply chain practice—plus our extensive technology enablement and digital enterprise transformation capabilities—can help you respond to supply chain disruption with confidence and agility. Our DSN Strategy, Insights and Advanced Solutions professionals can help you design, build, and operate a digital supply network, providing a flexible, future-facing ecosystem that connects elements across your supply chain—from product development to planning and sourcing to production and delivery, including post-delivery product monitoring, re-ordering, and customer support.

Our Synchronized Planning teams develop integrated business strategies and supply planning solutions that coordinate the flow and delivery of products and materials through the supply network to optimally balance total cost to serve rising customer expectations. We’ll help you visualize and plan your supply network from end to end, advising on process development, supply chain flexibility, service/repair planning, system implementations, performance metrics, analytics, organization design, and change management.

To address Logistics and Distribution, implement our industry-leading strategies to develop best practises for moving the right product to the right place at the right time. Our people will guide you to shape your distribution network, define your logistics outsourcing strategy, optimize your transport and warehouse operations, and design your logistics systems.

But to begin the transformation of your product development capabilities, you’ll need to improve product quality, reduce time-to-market, and drive increased R&D return on investment.
