Supply Chain & Network Operations

Create sustainable competitive advantage by unlocking new value across the supply chain nodes in an agile, interconnected way through interventions that help organizations imagine, run and deliver their supply networks.

We address the most complex issues by taking a holistic view of the supply chain - design, plan, source, make, and deliver - driving integrated solutions drawing on global capabilities and deploying high impact delivery models.

Traditional, linear supply chains are evolving into sets of dynamic, IoT-enabled digital supply networks (DSNs). The perennial supply chain pressures of enhancing productivity, supporting innovation, and accelerating the flow of material and information —with more agility—become even more important as new business and operating models, markets and segments, 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 supply chain processes, and automating supply chain activities across your value chain.

Our supply chain capabilities span all areas of business strategy and operations across industries such as consumer business, automotive, energy, resources, industrial products, life sciences, healthcare and telecom

Our world-class supply chain practice—plus our extensive technology enablement and digital enterprise transformation capabilities—can help you respond to supply chain disruptions 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 supply chain strategies and planning solutions that align customer demand, supply chain assets, and working capital to drive and deliver improvements in customer service levels, availability and total cost to serve. We  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.
