Supply & Inventory Management Turnaround Retail


This leading European manufacturer of home improvement products distributes to both trade and home delivery customers across 25 countries. Within the UK, changes to delivery profiles combined with imminent change in manufacturing location meant that a transport review was urgently required. 


The UK subsidiary of this east European manufacturer of goods for the retail market was experiencing end to end supply chain and logistics issues in delivering to demanding UK retail ordering profiles and a lack of visibility of promotional activity. Following a transport review, Davies & Robson consultants determined the optimum infrastructure.


To implement the commercial, structural and operational recommendations a Davies & Robson Interim Manager was appointed to manage the work streams and deliver the changes required. Davies & Robson selected Jean-Pierre to assess the quickest available deliverables to stabilise the operation and customer service levels. Addressing:

  • Forecasting and demand planning
  • Inbound order profiles
  • Pre-peak procurement planning and inventory control


Jean-Pierre was able to design and implement standardised processes to best reflect:

  • The seasonal customer demands
  • Available supply volume/SKU/frequency profiles
  • And physical storage capabilities
