Details

Globally, the majority of FMCG organizations operate supply chains in multiple countries. However, transportation costs, and long transit times or frequent delays are major challenges for companies operating international supply chains. Stronger ties with clients and suppliers, and greater access to suppliers and manufacturers are major advantages of a free-trade agreement for organizations. Additionally, to investigate the reliability of foreign suppliers organizations across regions prefer to physically visit suppliers. They are also aiming to seek out new suppliers rather than reduce them to support capacity expansion and supply chain improvement. The majority of companies across regions are looking to introduce a next generation approach such as supply chains that are fast, flexible, and responsive. FMCG organizations believe that it is important to keep local production and incorporate a certain level of local ingredients in products that are sold in different countries.
