Basis Commodities has been working with one of its clients for over four years to identify and capture additional value through costs savings in the supply chain. We sat down with the client and identified areas we though offered opportunities for cost saving’s not traditionally identified by manufacturers. We then worked on an implementation plan that ensured they were comfortable with the risks associated with the changes and then helped them implement those changes. The client is now able to negotiate and control their own ocean freight and we are now working with them on other projects which will allow them to procure products closer to the farm gate.
As the COO commented “We engaged Basis Commodities to review our supply chain from Australia and identify and implement opportunities for improving our procurement task. Not only did they work with us on restructuring our approach to suppliers they have taken an effective role in helping us to develop new ways of managing the risk associated with the supply of raw materials”
