RESEARCH: Energy industry comes out of its shell to recognize need to share resources and exchange best practices
 

New research from DHL shows that a lot of companies operating in the energy industry yet have to adapt their supply chains to the exceptional harsh market conditions the sector faced in 2015 - and will continue to do so in 2016. The new whitepaper looks at both the conventional and renewable energy industry and suggests improving supply chain visibility and efficiency as well as adopting a new mindset to share logistics assets and resources across departments and companies.

The 2015 Return on Supply Management Assets (ROSMA) Performance Check Study
 

The 2015 Return on Supply Management Assets (ROSMA) Performance Check Study, “Building a Bolder Legacy: The Procurement Mission is Under Way,” found that top performing procurement organizations improved their performance versus the 2014 report results with most delivering 10 to 15 times returns. Top performers were also found to deliver 7.5 times the costs and investment base in procurement and are expanding their advantage. These leaders generate about $1.25 million in financial benefits per procurement employee per year.
