Manufacturing, Distribution and Logistics

Downstream manufacturing, distribution and logistics businesses are working in an increasingly competitive and volatile marketplace, with stricter environmental regulations and evolving business models. Refining and chemical manufacturers face complexities such as heavier, more sour and costly crude oil, aging infrastructure and a declining experienced workforce.

You would, thus, need to protect margins by streamlining processes and leveraging resources effectively. You will require innovative models and solutions for improving equipment reliability and performance, and optimizing capacity, distribution fleets, inventories and overall operations.
