Micro supply chains achieve a level of flexibility and resilience that traditional supply models cannot match. It’s the right strategy for uncertain times.
Traditional “one size fits all” supply chain operating models are cost-effective but lack the flexibility to deal with uncertainty and fail to satisfy the complex demands of contemporary consumers, who expect a variety of products and services and same-day delivery. For KPMG, micro supply chains are the answer.
MICRO SUPPLY CHAINS
“Micro supply chains are finite, decentralised, agile ‘mini operating models’, with flexible supplier contracts and relationships, and manufacturing closer to the point of purchase.”
