Revamped cosmetics supply chain results in lower costs, fresher inventory

When a popular cosmetics brand wanted a lower-cost supply chain with more visibility and fewer carriers, Agility conducted a comprehensive review at the production site in the UK. We streamlined business by consolidating orders and collections, effectively getting the supply chain moving like clockwork. Freight movements were consolidated to eliminate vehicle-waiting time. We managed importation of all raw materials, including organic, fresh or natural ingredients. Agility also handled the export of finished products to retail outlets and ensured that inventory turnover at the retail level took place within four months for optimal freshness. Agility’s transformation of the company’s supply chain resulted in substantial efficiencies and cost savings.
