Supply Chains Hidden Flaw
Did you ever look at a problem and only later see that the answer was right in front of you? Si·lo·fi·ca·tion…
It happens to everyone – the proverbial blind spot. And many fleets can’t see how their supply chain process can become siloed when they don’t have access to meaningful business intelligence.
Silofication is the hidden flaw in the fleet supply chain process that splits decision-making into separate budget, design and upfit, and delivery silos, each blind to the concerns of the other.
But what if each silo wasn’t blind to the concerns of the others? What if they all had access to the same information to coordinate supply chain for long-term productivity and savings? Watch below to find out.
You’re managing repair costs and downtime by staying on top of predictable issues, but are the stakeholders responsible for replacement cycling or the ones who decide on new vehicle specs aware of the issues you’re seeing? If you combine your insight together, you could build vehicles that are better suited for their use and reduce lifetime operating costs. Start looking at your fleet as an investment.
SUPPLY CHAIN BIDDING
Do the people handling your vehicle supply chain have access to all the information, data, and analytics that impacts their portion of responsibility? Information silofication is a common fleet challenge. From the budgeters and vehicle design folks to the ones getting the vehicles to your drivers, getting your whole vehicle supply chain on the same page will reduce your costs and improve productivity.
If your vehicle replacement scheduling is inconsistent, you will be submitting erratic capital funding requests. On top of that, your decision to lease or finance can impact the number of vehicles you can replace within a given planning cycle. But if you take your approach to fleet financing outside the budget silo, you can produce long-term savings for the business.
Does your fleet have a tendency to isolate your understanding and treatment of parts of the vehicle supply chain? Perhaps you separate steps for allocating budget from analysis of vehicle specifications or from planning when new vehicles will be put into service. We can help you knock down silos and collaborate with stakeholders for long-term productivity and savings.
