Consolidation within Stemcor leads to lean and flexible supply chain

September 27, 2012 2187 Views

An interview with Robert van der Weck, group stockholding director at Stemcor in Düsseldorf (Germany) by Marcel ter Lindert.

Stemcor is the world’s largest independent steel-trading company. As the company has grown by acquisition, its Northwest-European supply chain is highly fragmented. Stemcor initially planned to change that by investing in a new transit centre in Vlissingen (The Netherlands).

However, Groenewout advised a different solution: consolidate at a logistics service provider who could provide a combined transit and distribution centre in the Scheldt area.

By following Groenewout’s advice, Stemcor was able to save almost 10 percent on its logistics costs and almost 20 percent on its inventory capital costs.
