The benefits of Business Process Outsourcing

Mature companies have typically developed the capacity and capabilities to effectively manage their own supply chain but choose to outsource in order to focus on their core business, free up internal resources and achieve greater cost savings.

Sherwood Business Process Outsourcing services include:

  • A fully managed logistics service
  • Procurement processing & sourcing
  • Parts & spares management
  • Supplier relationship management
  • Export administration

Start-ups and small medium enterprises often do not have the resources to develop and implement sound supply chain administration practices. By outsourcing you have immediate access to the correct resource capacity and skills to get your business up and running quickly.

Companies expanding in Africa often outsource their supply chain administration in the start-up phase of the business, relying on the country specific logistics knowledge and capacity flexibility that a third party service provider can provide.

Sherwood Business Process Outsourcing services include:

  • Expert advice on local business establishment, rules and regulations
  • Export financing

The effectiveness of the inbound supply chain is crucial to the success of infrastructure development projects as it directly impacts the original deadlines, cost and profit margins. Companies often do not have the existing administrative resources to start the projects and opt to outsource the administration with the benefit of immediate access to capacity and systems.
