Global Logistics

We will address the total movement of materials and products through the supply chain starting with our vendors and concluding with the customer, with the goal of optimizing cost and service.

We will support the application of product replenishment based on “pull” strategies as these come close to addressing true customer demand.

We will use strategic modeling tools as part of continuous improvement studies and assessments to evaluate and determine least cost resourcing.

We will adapt best practices in a way to recognize differences in needs between emerging, developing, and developed markets in which we sell our products.

We will leverage the identification and application of integrated enterprise-wide information management systems.

We will regularly participate in key industry groups to broaden skills and to benchmark best practices.

We will identify and align with select global third-party providers to jointly seek logistics efficiencies.
