Experiences from a supply chain cost optimization project

Aneta Kocot

To improve decision taking on operational and strategical levels Colruyt has started a project on supply chain costing in 2011. The main purpose is to understand the profitability down to product level by modelling all supply chain costs over the relevant domains from purchasing through logistics to sales and reverse logistics. Within these domains we allocate costs to our operational processes (reception of goods,stock management,outbound picking...) and further to final cost objects business unit and product based on direct methods (direct costing and time driven ABC).
