Supply Chain Consulting

For Canadian companies in distribution and manufacturing, the customer service, reliability, pricing and execution of an organization’s supply chain operations are the biggest contributing factors to the operational efficiency and competitive advantage.

  • If a company’s supply chain strategy and facility investments drain available capital, then they can’t invest in new product development, market expansion or countless other initiatives that could make them more competitive.
  • If they starve their supply chain management of investment, then productivity will fall, operating costs will rise and customer service will deteriorate.
  • Conversely, every dollar wasted on unnecessary supply chain processes (facilities, equipment and technology) is a dollar that can’t be invested elsewhere, into things like product development or building new stores.

Most executives are forced to become experts in real estate every 5 – 10 years when their lease is expiring and they have to choose whether to renew or relocate.

ENCOR is a trusted Supply Chain consultant in Toronto, Canada with a track record of helping clients navigate these complex challenges, which in turn helps shape future real estate needs.
