Companies need to change their ways of making business if they want to stay on the top. The market has matured to the sustainable development and sustainability is no longer just a PR slogan.
Internet and mobile technologies are already in common use in trade, and their importance will only grow.
FMCG major corporations should expect the reduction in the supply of skilled management - every year there will be fewer university graduates, and they will be less interested in working for FMCG companies.
During the two strategic sessions the importance of cooperation between trading partners was stressed. The speakers showed the opportunities to reduce food waste and to achieve cost savings through sustainable development. Business leaders and mentors spoke about trends that will shape the FMCG market and affect the development of businesses.

Firmy chcąc utrzymać się na ryku w długim okresie muszą zmienić swój sposób działania. Rynek dojrzał już do zrównoważonego rozwoju a sustainability przestało być tylko hasłem PR-owym.
Internet i technologie mobilne na dobre zagościły już w handlu, a ich znaczenie będzie rosło.
Duże korporacje FMCG muszą przygotować się na zmniejszenie podaży wykwalifikowanej kadry managerskiej – z roku na rok mniej będzie absolwentów studiów wyższych, mniejsze też będzie zainteresowanie pracą w korporacjach FMCG.
Podczas dwóch sesji strategicznych Forum Współpracy ECR Polska podkreślono znaczenie współdziałania partnerów handlowych, przedstawiono możliwości zmniejszenia marnotrawstwa żywności i osiągnięcia oszczędności poprzez zrównoważony rozwój. Liderzy i mentorzy biznesu opowiedzieli o trendach jakie kształtować będą rynek FMCG i wpłyną na rozwój biznesów.

WARSZTAT PRAWNY: Prawne aspekty partnerstwa w łańcuchu dostaw.

Współdzielenie łańcucha dostaw (ang. shared supply chains) otwiera przed przedsiębiorcami szereg oczywistych korzyści, takich jak zmniejszenie kosztów i redukcja wzajemnego ryzyka. Celem warsztatu było zaprezentowanie podstawowych prawnych aspektów tej formy organizacji ciągów logistycznych, w szczególności ukazanie ewentualnych zagrożeń w zakresie zachowania poufności i tajemnicy handlowej przedsiębiorstw.

Looking around Europe for the best practices in supply chain management, one thing in particular is seen to be enabling further reductions in inventory, transport costs and CO2 emissions – supply chain consolidation. This session focuses on this topic and show what is new.
Companies participating in the the Future Supply Chain group of the Consumer Goods Forum show how they explored the possibilities of a cross-border, multi-modal consolidation using road and railway transport to ship goods from and to eastern Europe. Participants in the Dutch Dynalog project are building a cross-chain control centre that uses the internet to manage an optimised consolidation process where supply and demand of transport and warehouse capacity are matched. Finally, fresh fish supplier Meralliance demonstrates what opportunities supply chain collaboration can bring to small and medium sized enterprises and how they, with ECR France, seized them.
Speakers: Dennis Wereldsma, Capgemini; Xavier Hua, ECR Europe; Tom Tillemans, Heinz; Andrea Szucsany, Kraft Foods; Tim Beckmann, Kühne & Nagel; Laurent Jamier, Meralliance; Fokke van der Veer, Unilever; Tom de Kok, University Eindhoven/Dinalog

This breakout session explores new inventory strategies aimed to decrease end-to-end inventory, from supplier warehouse to retailer shelf, taking into account retailer/supplier inter-dependencies and overcoming the traditional unilateral approach while maintaining speed to shelf, high availability rates and an overall sustainable business performance.

Delegates will see the latest ECR inventory optimisation project results where 16 companies from the consumer goods sector helped to identify new approaches in reducing supply chain inventories collaboratively. A conceptual framework will be presented as a roadmap from the initial idea to the implementation of an improvement action plan in an FMCG environment.

This session will provide delegates with a new perception of inventory in the supply chain. Learn how both sides, retailer and supplier, can benefit equally from collaborative approaches.[CUT]

Speakers: Sören Hagen, Andreas Kick, 4flow; Antonio Bianchi, Colgate Palmolive; Eberhard Braun, Metro Systems; Ettore Piccirillo, Unilever.

Facilitated by ECR Europe and 4flow.

Where do you want to be in 2020? Do you know how consumers will shop in 10 years? Can you guarantee sustainable sourcing for agricultural products? Do you know how to survive a negative Facebook viral fan page?

The answers to these and other questions will determine how prepared the industry is to succeed in the new decade.

The 2020 Future Value Chain initiative explores the opportunities and challenges that will face the consumer goods industry over the next decade and identifies the activities that need to be put in place today to ensure the industry is well positioned for 2020.

Delegates learn about the trends that will have the greatest impact on the industry, the objectives on which the industry should focus and the tactics that will help achieve these objectives. The results of the Future Value Chain programme represent the collective thinking of almost 250 executives, from local and international retailers and manufacturers, third-party partners, academia and industry associations from around the globe.

Industry leaders who have participated in this global programme will share their thoughts and experiences.
Facilitated by The Consumer Goods Forum and Capgemini.

How rapidly things change! Just a few months ago most business were making plans on the assumption of continued robust prosperity. But the world's financial crisis has made mincemeat of all that. Recessions looms, you can almost hear the sound of people battening down the hatches, withdrawing their horns and preparing for the worst rather the best.
There are some silver linings though. Many consumer good suppliers and retailers provide the daily necessaries and affordable luxuries that fare relatively well in recession.

Mapping the environmental impact of day-to-day activities such as supplying cartons of orange juice or an apple throws up many surprising results – and the information we need to make better decisions.

Traditional retail supply chains work according to the motto better, centralised and distant”. Each firm operating within these supply chains seeks to optimise its own activities and buffer itself against others upstream and downstream. And customers are strangers, walking anonymously through the store selecting from what is available.
Well, get ready for a complete U-turn – a change in direction which takes us to a very different destination.
The motto of tomorrow’s leading-edge supply chains will be “fresher, simpler and closer”. Products will flow quickly and seamlessly down value chains which encompass many different firms, in direct response to consumer orders. Consumers themselves will no longer be strangers.
Far from it, they will be an integral, crucial and value-adding link in the whole process.

"Plan, prévisions et approvisionnements concertés - Manuel de mise en œuvre du CPFR"

Xavier Hua (ECR France) 2010.02.12

Publication Date: 2001
Publication Language: French
Publication Country/Region: ECR France
Publication Type: Bluebook
Publisher: n/a
Companies involved: GENCOD EAN France, ECR France
Author: n/a

Fruit des réflexions menées par 66 sociétés industrielles, de distribution, de conseil et de service, ce manuel situe les enjeux et les perspectives du CPFR dans le contexte français. Il livre de précieux enseignements sur sa mise en œuvre, notamment sur ses implications organisationnelles, ainsi que sur les outils et échanges d'informations qu'il requiert. Résultat d'une concertation et de la capitalisation des connaissances des entreprises françaises, les concepts décrits dans ce manuel sont cohérents avec les travaux internationaux menés aux Etats-Unis par le VICS et en Europe par ECR Europe. Ce manuel les complète de la description des messages EDI nécessaires à chacune des étapes, des ressources humaines à mobiliser et des fonctions impliquées. Il indique comment la GPA peut intervenir dans la phase de réapprovisionnement pour les produits standards hors promotion.

"Réduire les ruptures en linéaire, les stocks résiduels et les surcoûts logistiques – Qualité des prévisions et concertation industriel – distributeur pour les promotions, les produits saisonniers et les nouveaux produits"

Depuis 10 ans, ECR France a conduit plusieurs groupes de travail dédiés à l’optimisation des promotions (1998), à l’optimisation du lancement de nouveaux produits (1999), au planning des échéances communes et aux prévisions concertées des promotions (1999-2000) et au CPFR - plan, prévisions et approvisionnements concertés (2001) et édité les manuels de bonnes pratiques correspondants. Deux programmes de formation, l’un sur l’optimisation des promotions et l’autre sur le lancement de nouveaux produits ont été développés en 2004.
Les résultats de tous les pilotes bilatéraux de mise en œuvre se sont révélés excellents et prometteurs ; pour autant, le déploiement massif des bonnes pratiques élaborées collectivement n’est pas réalisé. La non-disponibilité d’outils permettant de systématiser la génération de prévisions de qualité et/ou d’automatiser la concertation entre industriel et distributeur a été considérée, en première analyse, comme la cause de nos difficultés de massification.
Le groupe de travail à l’origine de ce document a été créé initialement en vue de lever ces deux obstacles. Après avoir auditionné plusieurs offreurs de solutions et échangé sur les pratiques de ses participants, il constate qu’il n’y a plus, aujourd’hui, d’obstacles techniques : les nouveaux outils de prévisions englobent l’intégration des historiques, la caractérisation des opérations, les simulations, … et les outils de concertation développés permettent d’aligner les processus, les plannings, … et de gérer par exception. La difficulté est d’un autre ordre.
Comment déployer les succès de mise en œuvre des bonnes pratiques obtenus par les pilotes alors qu’un très grand nombre d’acteurs est concerné, tant dans l’entreprise qu’entre partenaires ?
Ce document de synthèse fera la part des choses sur les véritables obstacles à lever en proportionnant les réponses aux enjeux des opérations et en donnant aux acteurs la motivation nécessaire pour réduire, à la plus grande satisfaction des consommateurs, les ruptures en linéaire, les surstocks et les surcoûts.

Reusable Transport Items (RTI), crates, pallets and roll cages, represent the "Nuts and Bolts" of the European Fast Moving Consumer Goods (FMCG) Supply Chain. At the end of the previous millennium an increasing variety of equipment, managed in a variety of different ways, was used to handle an expanding catalogue of products, all with the aim of reducing supply chain costs for individual elements within the total supply chain. But different incompatible management systems for RTI have led to market fragmentation and supply chain inefficiencies - standardised methods are needed to organise their distribution and return.

RTI are considered as assets, which need to be tracked & traced through the supply chain to enable their efficient use for all involved parties. RTI may have commercial implications if they are subjected to deposits or fees related to their use. For invoicing purposes RTI have to be accounted separately. To do this, a unique identification of RTI and standardised communication of the related information is required. This report explains how the EAN.UCC-system should be used for this purpose.

Integrated Suppliers is a concept for improving the part of the supply chain between manufacturers and their tiers of suppliers of ingredients, raw materials and packaging. By sharing information both parties are able to exercise judgement on costs, quantities and timing of deliveries and production in order to streamline the product flow and to move to a collaborative relationship. The goal of this booklet is to promote the application of the key concepts of Integrated Suppliers in the supply chain. Based on existing case studies spread over Europe and supply chain theory it is demonstrated that suppliers play an important role in "working together to fulfil consumer wishes better, faster and at less costs".
