Strong corporate growth along with internationalization or mergers & acquisitions are common reasons for needing to change how supply chain is organized. Optimizing processes and tasks to make them more efficient typically involves adjustments to other functions as well, since rethinking supply chain from a network perspective brings new requirements along with it.
There are also great opportunities for improving performance in the organization of logistics itself. Substantial synergies can be bundled and utilized in order management, transportation management, program and production planning, materials management, and supplier management. New technologies are also available to support implementation.
The challenges often include the need to rework business processes in these areas and to handle the new interfaces that result as well.
Additional challenges include the modeling of cross-functional responsibility and the organizational support of overall cost analysis. And merely including logistics functions earlier into business processes is often not enough to alleviate the situation.
