Achieving cost reductions of 17% in just one year, SpringTide worked to create a Strategic Sourcing function in a FTSE 350 company. From the creation of policies and procedures to recruiting and developing the team, the project delivered a more responsive and results-orientated supply chain.
SpringTide were engaged to restructure the supply chain of a Global Aggregates business, delivering the solution within 6 months and achieving savings of 7% of the transport bill in phase 1 as well as improving fleet safety and payload.
Creating a bespoke NVQ programme for a UK Engineering, IT and Facilities Provider to upskill their Procurement Team led to 18 students achieving their MCIPS qualification within 18 months.

By introducing a structure of procurement practices, policies, procedures and measures and creating and developing a skilled team of buyers, SpringTide enabled an engineering and manufacturing company to realise significant savings and to win more work.
Through thorough market analysis and a comprehensive 3PL tender process, SpringTide helped a major aggregates business to harmonise transport rates, optimise loading and scheduling, and increase the safety and efficiency of its own and third-party fleets.
