Take control of your supply chain in a half day

When your customer target group expands and differentiates, so does your selection of sold goods/services. A large product selection also means many separate purchases. This often brings along a large number of individual suppliers. Large product selections also hold relatively larger proportions of products with small sales. Quite often, a business’ low profitability is a result of costs growing faster than profits when attempting to grow a business by increasing its volume.

The aim of managing material flows is to ensure the efficient use of labor, capital, and available space. This training course will teach you how to focus on what really matters – In other words: How to get more with less!
