Retail and consumer goods supply chains are increasingly globalized and complex as companies seek to optimize costs while retaining flexibility. Production in multiple countries and sites poses major challenges in terms of quality, and compliance with regulations and standards relating to safety as well as environmental and social responsibility.
For industrial and construction companies, meanwhile, effective supply chain management focuses on managing the production quality of highly specialized modules, all of which must work together.
Improve supply chain productivity and quality
Bureau Veritas’ helps industrial and construction companies, retailers and consumer goods manufacturers manage potential supply chain risks via inspections and audits, testing, consulting and certification.
For retailers and brands, we provide testing, inspection and audit services to validate the quality and performance of products provided by different manufacturers to our clients. We also assess product and factory compliance with local and international regulations, and standards imposed by the brand. Our factory audits focus on processes around quality, chemical, environmental and social management.
Our online supply chain management system, OneSource, helps our clients make informed decisions on suppliers and sourcing locations. It provides supplier and country ratings by product line and client-tailored regulatory updates.
For industrial and construction companies, our supply chain services focus on quality. Many industrial installations are highly specialized: to build and maintain them, it is therefore necessary to source from multiple countries and suppliers. Bureau Veritas deploys teams of quality experts, managers and inspectors across manufacturing locations to ensure consistent production quality for these highly specialized modules.
