DO NOT CONCENTRATE TOO MUCH ON ONE COMPONENT

There is a lot involved in the transport and storage of Fast-Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG). And there is often room for improvement. But to find a reliable partner who can help you the best in this? And how are all components in the supply chain properly aligned?

Finding the right partner is of vital importance for many FMCG companies. To help you in this process, Nabuurs collaborated with independent procurement specialists to set out the most important FMCG logistics tender tips for you.

Tender tips

The logistics tender process is often a complex one. What precisely do you want and how do you find the right logistics provider? In collaboration with various experts, Nabuurs has drawn up a checklist of Tender Tips, drawing attention to the major issues you should consider. You will learn:

  • What you need to identify in advance
  • What the important aspects are besides price
  • How you can select based on reliability
  • How you can find a sustainable partner
  • This field is for validation purposes and should be left unchanged.

PREVIEW TIP: THE SPEND WILL INDICATE WHERE THE COSTS ARE

A good tender begins internally. More efficiency and lower costs are often a matter of breaking habits and old patterns. André Seltenrijch, director at the procurement advice organisation Procurement Services, puts it as follows: “A lot of knowledge exists in the business itself, but not all business units know exactly what other units do. The challenge is to get them to play together as an orchestra.”

Therefore, when it comes to a tender, good preparation is literally half the battle. It also helps to specify precisely what you expect from a logistics partner. The more detailed you can indicate what your needs are, the better able your providers will be in assessing whether they can meet these requirements. This can also result in better rates. If it turns out afterwards that you did not communicate this correctly, problems may arise, which of course should be avoided.
