Traditionally, supply chain planning has focused on activities like warehousing and transportation provision. Although these services certainly drive efficiency and lower costs, DHL Supply Chain understands that to make a significant impact on a utilities bottom line, we must focus on the key value drivers within the supply chain. In other words, enabling your engineers to maximize their time.
Supply chain and procurement activities are essential to support the field engineers who maintain your network infrastructure. To optimize productivity of these highly skilled teams and maximize the time spent performing critical maintenance tasks, field engineers need essential parts delivered where they need them, when they need them.
With our engineering response model, DHL Supply Chain manages the materials supply chain from works planning and inbound goods through on-site works, delivering stock to engineers and other workers in the field. All activities other than the core engineering functions are managed and co-coordinated by us through a central control tower function. We also manage the reverse flows of plant and material, which can include waste and decommissioned assets.
Our warehouse management systems and supply chain management tools allow you to track materials through the entire end-to-end supply chain.
