Trolleys Procurement Best Practices

Sometimes, procurement functions are unable to timely alter their practices while responding to market conditions. Industry experts acknowledge that periodically reviewing procurement best practices and adopting learnings from across procurement categories can help procurement teams respond to market needs in a more agile way. This report combines our experience of other categories with Trolleys procurement insights and hand picks best practices that can work for category managers delving in this market.

For example, Large organizations are optimizing category spend by eliminating tail-spend service providers and engaging with a single service provider to meet buyers' needs. Buyers generally prefer to engage with preferred global suppliers. However, if global suppliers do not have an operational presence in a specified country, buyers should engage with local/regional service providers.

There is a shift in focus toward minimizing emissions and energy usage to achieve sustainability goals. Buyers should monitor and evaluate the energy consumption of suppliers' operations before procurement. This also helps adherence with standards mandated by various national and international regulatory authorities.

Buyers should properly evaluate the effectiveness and sustainability of suppliers' safety process before onboarding them. Suppliers should be required to provide details data on workplace safety KPIs and accident statistics to complete their safety evaluation. This process can reduce accident related risks in the buyer's operations and reputational risks that arise from industrial accidents.
