Highly experienced interim supply chain executives can step into organizations and quickly tackle the key issues that most companies face in terms of improving their supply chain and overall company performance. The right interim or fractional supply chain executive make an immediate impact on a project or interim basis addressing key challenges. For example:
Customer Service – Effective customer service – getting product to the right place at the right time is really a complex information problem between the company and their customers and making that information visible in real time to everyone in the process. The right interim Supply Chain executive who has “been there and done that” and know what good looks like can lead organization in improving this technology driven information flow
Cost Control – Cost control is a critical issue and usually related to the rising cost of transportation. An interim supply chain executive with strong logistics and transportation experience can quickly make a significant impact in cost and improve operating income.
When companies use an interim supply chain executive on a fractional basis they can typically get someone with more experience than they could hire and while in their interim supply chain role can tackle key initiatives.

While the interim supply chain executive managed the team they also led several key initiatives including warehouse redesign, distribution center footprint redesign, and RFID re-implementation. Through the 6 month process they were able to help improve productivity, lower cost, and improve customer service. They also helped in selecting the full time Warehouse Manager.
