Regionalization and flexibility
When combatting rising tariffs, increased labor costs and geopolitical instability, leading brands are evaluating regionalized supply chains as a possible valuable option.
And it is our diverse supply chain network, combined with our deep expertise and global footprint, that allows them to realize the benefits of regionalization.
We can help determine when you should move closer to where you are located. Leveraging our manufacturing capabilities can provide you in-region, value-added fulfillment solutions.
Manufacture in region
We offer manufacturing at scale in more than 100 sites across 30 countries. Our global presence provides you the flexibility of sourcing components and building products in region - or rapidly shifting production to other worldwide locations as demand or regulations change.
By creating one of the world’s largest and most diverse supply chain networks, we can respond to evolving regional, trade and manufacturing dynamics. We work with 16,000 suppliers to source more than 1 million parts. Our scale and geographic breadth addresses logistical and sourcing challenges in any region across the globe.
Supply in region
We work closely with suppliers to understand how and where they source their materials.
Resiliency provides and analyzes supply network data - and then presents that information in an actionable manner. Our supplier relationship management tools are built on Ivalua, allowing us to collaborate with suppliers on full end-to-end procurement, supply chain and quality processes. The net results for you are faster operations and lower error rates.
Fulfill in region
Our services and solutions meet the demands of most fulfillment networks in any region.
Agile capabilities in B2B, B2C, D2R and D2C meet evolving end customer requirements – while configure to order (CTO) postponement activities lower inventories, increases velocity and ensures high fill rates to multiple channels.
