He helps them to evaluate the design and function of their supply chain and identify opportunities to improve how products and information flow through the chain to minimize costs and maximize performance. He also works with clients to develop effective capacity plans and optimize transportation spend to significantly reduce costs throughout the supply chain – from material supply through manufacturing, warehousing and transportation to the end customer.
