Strategic Sourcing Guide to Cotton Seeds Procurement

Overview

Environmental Goods market around the world is undergoing rapid transitions that have a massive potential to influence the way companies strategize for Cotton Seeds procurement and the cost they have to incur. Buyers are moving towards longer contract durations with suppliers of Cotton Seeds to benefit from value-based discounts, integrated products and services, lower renewal cost and lesser expenses on contracting activities.

Several factors in the value chain of Cotton Seeds, such as labor cost, logistics, and energy costs are driving up the procurement costs. Additionally, engagement of suppliers who are still operating with outdated assets, technologies and processes is also increasing the cost for buyers.

Regulatory changes are taking place more frequently and the changes impact multiple functions within an organization. Alignment of procurement practices and decisions with all the new regulations has now become highly challenging, especially when category managers are responsible to centrally procure for multiple regions with different regulations.

Cotton Seeds Procurement Best Practices

The report discusses in detail the best practices that have served well the category managers responsible for Cotton Seeds procurement.

For example, Large organizational buyers can leverage their scale of operations to initiate competitive bidding between suppliers. Competitive bidding would enable buyers to have a better visibility of the market prices and may help identify suppliers that offer the most competitive price offering viz-a-viz other players.

Buyers should engage with suppliers that can repurchase the used products at fair market value or can offer recycling capability. This assists buyers to dispose of used products in a convenient manner and honor their sustainability practices. Also, suppliers provide credits to buyers for future purchases. This reduces overall procurement costs for buyers.

While competitive bidding as a cost optimization tool is extremely potent but should be carefully deployed only when there is no significant differentiation among Cotton Seeds suppliers.
