Volatility in the prices of key inputs is creating multiple issues that impact procurement within Cruise Ships category such as benchmarking and budgeting of the procurement costs. Suppliers are continuously taking efforts to improve efficiencies and productivity and deploying processes and technologies. Some of these investments are likely to increase their costs in the shorter term, but learnings from other sectors keep the suppliers optimistic about a lean cost structure in the longer run. Procurement costs for Cruise Ships are highly impacted by an increase in the costs associated with the value chain of Cruise Ships, such as logistics, labor cost and energy. Additionally, outdated assets are also increasing the cost for suppliers.

Cruise Ships procurement best practices are moving towards a level of sophistication which is typically seen in traditional procurement categories. Category managers now have an attractive opportunity to adapt the best practices seen within this category as well as those being leveraged in other non-related categories. This report summarizes the best practices picked from across multiple categories that could work well for category managers involved with Cruise Ships procurement strategy. For example, Competitive bidding as a cost optimization tool is extremely potent but should be carefully deployed only when there is no significant differentiation among Cruise Ships suppliers. Buyers should engage with suppliers that have adopted a global delivery model as it reduces buyers' risk. In this model, any disaster/emergency at any operating facility of supplier will result in the work being transferred to a different facility, thereby ensuring continuity of the project and reduced risk for buyers. This model also provides buyers access to skilled labor from across the globe, thereby improving the quality of engineering products provided by the supplier. Buyers should invest in benchmarking studies that help category managers to improve their knowledge on market pricing or billing rates of service providers. This helps them to not only save costs but also increase their negotiation power.
