Global supply chain management

4flow management takes over the continuous management and optimization of international supply chains and achieves a high level of material availability and efficient processes.

The volume of goods moved through intercontinental supply chains is constantly on the rise. Companies are now adding value to products and services on a global basis. Since most networks grow out of necessity over time, today, it’s rare that material flows are able to be combined and processed efficiently. This results in high costs and low performance levels throughout the entire supply chain.

Oftentimes, the flows of information and materials are not coordinated jointly; there is a lack of general transportation standards and uniform approach to procuring logistics services. This leads to high costs and marginal performance throughout the entire supply network. On a global level this lack of transparency results in long lead times, high inventory levels and less flexibility.

4flow management has extensive experience optimizing and managing global supply chains. The ultimate goal is to bring transparency to the entire worldwide network. With that transparency, we then harness significant optimization opportunities, and manage the supply chain accordingly.
