Supply Chain Services:
Global sourcing has been a key driver in lowering costs and remaining flexible, and competitive. Increasing competition in your markets puts pressure on profitability and quality in your product mix, giving rise to issues related to quality management. While global sourcing is here to stay, it is essential to optimize the quality management component of your supply chain to meet these challenges.
The wide array of technical standards and government regulations also complicates your global sourcing efforts. The constantly changing regulatory environment, uneven enforcement, and confusing standards increase your challenges. As an importer or exporter, moving products across borders requires you to be current, and in compliance, with the specific market regulations where your product will be sold.
