Chemicals

Time to shed old habits

The chemical value chain is moving further eastwards, towards Asia. It is time for European players to shed old habits. To create real value for their customers, they have to take a fresh look at their supply chain as well as their workforce, and embrace digital transformation wholeheartedly.

Challenges for the chemical industry

Trade-offs?

Price swings in commodities, key ingredients, co-products and by-products make it hard to predict raw material trade-offs and manage value streams, let alone streamline your entire supply chain.

Customer-centric?

To become a true solutions provider and partner to your customers, you have to know what they need, make reliable predictions of their demands and deliver on your promises.

Optimal workforce?

Your highly skilled workforce is your main asset. How can you best deploy your workforce in a 24/7 setup?
