This wholesale organization is owned by agricultural retailers who do business throughout the central part of the United States and parts of Canada.

The organization provides its owners with a competitive and reliable supply of crop protection and crop nutrients. It also offers other resources that help their owners succeed. Executives had identified a number of issues in their logistics function, including:

  • Lack of clear structure, roles and responsibilities
  • Minimal cross-functional process and system integration
  • Customers and suppliers were controlling freight and supply chain value
  • The absence of logistics capability and visibility on potential lowest landed costs.
In addition to this, the company had never implemented an international strategic procurement function. Senior executives engaged SGS-Maine Pointe to help develop and implement new tools and processes and deliver the training required to make sure the improvements would be sustainable.
