Suppliers can contribute added value to an organisation, for example through optimum chain logistics and delivery reliability. This enables you as a purchasing organisation to offer your own clients a high level of logistics performance.
The added value of suppliers can also be the result of optimum cost management, which enables you to successfully introduce a strategy of cost leadership. Finally, far-reaching innovation by the suppliers is conceivable, which brings a strategy of product leadership within reach. The procurement strategy therefore is an important strategic cornerstone for every organisation.
