The group’s focus is to drive cost out of the supply chain by partnering with clients to identify and execute solutions. ‘We don’t just deliver solutions, we execute and manage on a go forward basis through key performance indicators to ensure our clients solutions are executed properly and stay on track,’ said Holm-Andersen.
