The Changing Face of Supply Chain Management

As competitive pressures increase and supply chains become increasingly global and complex, efficient and proactive supply chain management has evolved from solely an operations concern to a critical business success factor. Companies now need real-time visibility into the flow of goods from their suppliers, and even their suppliers’ suppliers, to help them optimize inventory management, reduce lead times and limit transportation costs. In addition, they need practical solutions that can be creatively tailored to their unique needs and relationships, based on long-term experience across supply chain disciplines—not a “one-size-fits-all” software package that cannot be practically integrated into their operations. Menlo Logistics is uniquely positioned to meet the supply chain needs of today’s global enterprises, leveraging both a legacy of supply chain experience, and a deep bench of technology innovators.

Menlo Logistics provides full-service, third party logistics management using advanced systems to integrate and simplify large, complex operations. Through a systems-driven approach, we help to make all aspects of production and delivery mesh in perfect synchronization. Our fully integrated supply chain management solutions help customers achieve more efficient global supply chains by improving their processes, lowering their costs for systems integration and management, and improving decision support and visibility of their worldwide inventory. Menlo Logistics’ ultimate goal is to deliver measurable profitability improvement and a strategic advantage to the customer.
