LEGACY Supply Chain Services Launches Grader Tool and eBook to Evaluate Supply Chain Performance

July 20, 2015, Portsmouth, NH – LEGACY Supply Chain Services, a North American 3PL, announces the release of an innovative grader tool designed to help companies evaluate their own supply chain performance, and identify opportunities for improvement.

The Supply Chain Performance Grader: Instant View™ allows businesses to evaluate over 25 aspects of the supply chain, grouped within six supply chain disciplines – supply chain visibility, mapping & visualization, risk management, supply chain design, business intelligence, and talent retention & workplace culture development. The tool provides a supply chain report card along with specific recommendations on how to improve supply chain performance and increase efficiencies.

Complementing the Instant View tool, LEGACY has partnered with industry expert Adrian Gonzalez, President of Adelante SCM to publish a new eBook, “Keeping Up With the Retail Consumer: 6 Supply Chain Disciplines Retailers Must Master”. The eBook also features a commentary from Rick Blasgen, President of CSCMP.

“The supply chain demands placed on retailers today have become increasingly complex,” said Mike Glodziak, President of LEGACY Supply Chain Services. “We partnered with Adrian Gonzalez to provide retailers with a different perspective on what’s impacting the flow of their product, and insights on how make supply chain an engine for maintaining and gaining market share.”

According to Adrian Gonzalez, “E-commerce and omni-channel fulfillment, along with the growing risks and complexities associated with global sourcing and international transportation, are forcing retailers to develop more flexible and responsive supply chains. Mastering the six fundamental supply chain disciplines discussed in the eBook, along with establishing truly collaborative relationships with suppliers and third-party logistics (3PL) partners, will enable retailers to innovate and drive continuous improvement across their supply chains, and also pave the way to achieving profitable growth.”

This latest eBook from LEGACY Supply Chain Services addresses the current state of the retail market as the traditional roles of distribution centers, stores, and transportation providers continue to evolve. As retailers expand globally they must deal with a growing set of challenges and risks, and shifts in consumer demand. This eBook discusses six specific disciplines retailers can use to face these challenges while expanding their global markets.
