Inventory reduction of €40m across Europe for metal packaging manufacturer

This large client produces metal packaging throughout Europe and supplies food and other types of industry. Response times need to be fast, material supply and manufacturing response are critical if customer service is to be maintained without excessive inventory. Our main work was in the processes which collect data and balance demand and supply through the material, manufacturing and distribution stages. By changing processes, introducing VMI arrangements and adjusting planning parameters we helped to reduce inventory by €40m while still maintaining customer service.
