Saving from the baseline

Lexus is a leading global premium automotive manufacturer with a network of over 350 facilities in Europe and Russia. Arcadis was appointed on their Refresh Concept Programme to provide Programme Management, Supply Chain Procurement, Cost Estimating and Brand Guardian services.

We developed the network plan with their National Marketing and Sales Companies and are aligned this with the Supply Chain Demand plan. By taking the cost out of the supply chain, we maintained a high-quality look and feel, whilst achieving the target per facility budget, saving 15% from the baseline.

By establishing a strong network of experienced automotive professionals to undertake the Brand Guardian role, we ensured there was clear guidance to the dealer network around the requirements of the brand.

We designed a Supply Chain linked to the network plan that flexed activity around a slot booking system, which enabled the suppliers to hold the correct levels of stock and service the dealer network as and when products and materials were required. We estimate that this allowed the dealers to save on average four weeks out of their procurement activity.

“We have successfully worked with Arcadis for over 10 years and we were very keen to continue this relationship on our exciting new Refresh Programme."
