3:30 PM Case study: Balancing Lean with agility to optimise global supply chains

Inmarsat is undertaking a major transformation to create a more customer-centric supply chain across Europe, North America and the APAC region. You will hear perspectives from the OPEX and business unit leaders on how they have managed deliver on-time to a customer base that can only be served when in port, subject to last minute changes such as Customs and the weather. 
  • The approach to building more agility into the supply chain: pushing out the process to plan as late as possible given a 6 – 9 month order lead time
  • Establishing regional hubs and on-boarding partners to enable the transformation
  • The tangible business impact of the programme in terms of on-time delivery rates and operational costs 
  • Tangible lessons that could be applied to other supply chain optimisation programmes
