Strategic Sourcing Guide to Solid Fiber Boxes Procurement

Overview

Several macro changes in the dynamics of overall Warehousing and Storage as well as Solid Fiber Boxes procurement trends are poised to change the business practices and procurement thumb rules. Large global suppliers are entering into JVs and M&As with vendors that can provide them a solid footing for regional play.

Businesses are focused on maintaining a lean inventory of raw materials, parts, components and finished goods. While it is a novel concept to keep the inventory costs in check, it also highly challenging to implement in a global sourcing context and requires a clock work like optimization of logistics and warehousing processes. Companies are moving to a completely digital supply chain footprint to reduce errors and risks associated with such strategies.

Service providers have begun to use advanced technologies and tools such as loT, predictive analysis and big data for optimal asset utilization, geofencing, warehouse management, and smart inventory management. The efficiencies gained by using new technology and improvement in customer service capabilities are significant. More and more suppliers are moving towards adopting these technologies to realize significant efficiency gains in the longer run, however, it may also increase their OPEX in the short run.

Category managers need to take note of the potential of these developments and reassess the changes required in their procurement practices.

Risks in Solid Fiber Boxes procurement

Solid Fiber Boxes procurement managers also need to proactively identify and mitigate potential risks that can arise in the supply chain or contracts for Solid Fiber Boxes procurement. Some examples include:


  • The volatility in fuel prices and capacity constraints affect the cost structures of suppliers. Fuel costs account for the largest part of the operational costs for the suppliers. Therefore, an increase in the fuel costs significantly increases the suppliers' operating expenditure
  • When requirements of the buyers are not absolutely clear or usage patterns are not stable or predictable, suppliers often build in \"cost buffers\" for unforeseen risks due to a lack of complete understanding on buyer's requirements. This increases the risk of overspending on Solid Fiber Boxes
  • Suppliers may face a situation where they are unable to honor a contract in its entirety due to shortage of resources, finances or capabilities. While contractual terms safeguard buyers from the non-performance, their operations could still face massive disruptions due to suppliers' non-performance
