Supply Chain Management

TFS has built an excellent reputation in recent years when it comes to managing complete supply chains for customers.

We take care of the management of supplies on behalf of the subcontractors of our customers and the management of back-to-back agreements.

This allows our customers greater cost transparency and stable and reliable deliveries.

Also there are shorter lead times and less stock needed in the entire supply chain.

The concept of Supply Chain Management is based on two core ideas. The first is that practically every product that reaches an end user represents the cumulative effort of multiple organizations. These organizations are referred to collectively as the supply chain.

The second idea is that while supply chains have existed for a long time, most organizations have only paid attention to what was happening within their “four walls.”

Few businesses understood, much less managed, the entire chain of activities that ultimately delivered products to the final customer.

The result was disjointed and often ineffective supply chains.

Supply chain activities cover everything from product development, sourcing, production, and logistics, as well as the information systems needed to coordinate these activities.

The organizations that make up the supply chain are “linked” together through physical flows and information flows. Physical flows involve the transformation, movement, and storage of goods and materials.

They are the most visible piece of the supply chain. But just as important are information flows. Information flows allow the various supply chain partners to coordinate their long-term plans, and to control the day-to-day flow of goods and material up and down the supply chain.

Supply chain management, then, is the active management of supply chain activities to maximize customer value and achieve a sustainable competitive advantage.

It represents a conscious effort by the supply chain firms to develop and run supply chains in the most effective & efficient ways possible.
