A simple way to achieve greater supply chain efficiency
Reducing operating costs is an ongoing goal for most supply chain managers. And logistics costs alone have increased by 5.5% overall among those surveyed in Boston Consulting Group’s 2019 Supply Chain Benchmarking Study of consumer packaged goods companies.1 Are you also feeling the pressure to operate more efficiently?
Cut key supply chain costs
If you’re a laundry powder manufacturer who takes business performance as seriously as detergent performance, consider a simple choice: Novozymes Enfuze®.
Enzyme solutions powered by Enfuze® co-granulation technology make it simple to cut key supply chain costs by at least 50%. Plus, you can please even demanding consumers and boost sustainability. All while simplifying your supply chain.
More concentrated products, more simple supply chain
Consider these four key steps in your supply chain: 1) packaging of enzyme products from Novozymes; 2) transportation to your facilities; 3) handling and 4) inventory management.
Depending on your current setup, each step has the potential with Enfuze® for savings of at least 50%. Let’s take them one-by-one:
Cut packaging and carbon footprint
Enfuze® technology enables highly concentrated enzyme products. So, the amount of packaging needed goes down by 50% compared to standard multi-enzyme blends.
This means you save time and money on packaging waste disposal. CO2 emissions related to packaging production and disposal decrease as well.
Optimize transportation and lower emissions
A more concentrated enzyme product also translates into a simpler transportation process.
With Enfuze®, you need only half as many trucks to transport enzymes from Novozymes to your various sites and warehouses. This translates both into lower logistics costs and a smaller carbon footprint.
"The success of your business links inextricably to the performance of your supply chain."
– Rob O’Byrne, Logistics Bureau 2
Slash handling costs
It takes roughly 20 labor hours to handle 1 metric ton (MT) of enzyme product in a fiber drum. But since 1 MT of products without Enfuze® technology equals ½ MT of products with Enfuze®, your labor costs also decrease by half.
Your handling process becomes simpler and more efficient, too. You can even consider investing those resources and savings in activities that add more value to your business and consumers.
Increase inventory efficiency and flexibility
Complexity in stock units is a fundamental driver of cost. With Enfuze®, there’s simply less stock to keep track of. 50% less, in fact.
What’s more, an upgrade to Enfuze® translates into more warehouse space – and a reduction in costs related to inventory storage of at least 50%.
Less inventory and more space also give you the opportunity to be more flexible and adapt to your business environment. Use the extra space, for example, if you want to have safety stock on hand for potential demand increases.
Keep seeking efficiencies
As McKinsey & Company cautioned in 2019, “. . . it’s becoming increasingly difficult for manufacturers and retailers to launch new products and better services that react flexibly to shifting demand, while still maintaining (or even improving) their profitability.
“It’s no surprise that leading players are focused on improving their supply chain – especially when it comes to enhancing service levels, cutting costs, or optimizing inventory levels.” 3
