What We Do
An old joke in the apparel business; the only garment where one size fits all is the Mumu (housedress). Yes, they are comfortable, but not stylish. Would you be caught dead in a mumu? Why would you let any advisor use the same approach for the design of your supply chain?
Supply chains are not alike. They may be similar, but each will be unique in many ways. While you can sometimes apply the same strategies, tactics and operations to different supply chains, the outcomes will always vary.
Simply put, we help our clients develop the right supply chain and logistics programs for the client’s business. We do not fit the client to some existing plan, nor do we take a cookie-cutter one – size fits all approach to supply chain.
What We Do: We make sure the client gets a supply chain that fits their needs, now, and in the future. Our solutions, whether a network design, a distribution center, or a transportation program, will fit the way the client operates, and be flexible to allow for changes in the way the client grows, and how the market changes. Our solutions are tailored for each client, and never look like a housedress on a cow.
This Website - We Are The Practitioners (WATP) - is our educational contribution to the logistics and supply chain. Started in 2011 as a simple blog site - WATP continues to evolve into the premier source for individuals looking for by practitioner to practitioner knowledge and advice. Our simple goal is to improve, leadership, professionalism, thinking and execution in any supply chain. Since 2011 we welcomed successful practitioners to contribute their first hand experiences and thinking to our body of knowledge. To learn more about all of the contributors.
