Chain cooperation, ABC concept
Within the Hudig & Veder group we embrace these changes. Currently we are focusing our new operational system. With this new system we have one goal in mind: make work easier. With the use of this innovative solution, processes can be optimized even further and we as a company become increasingly flexible. Where possible, workflows will be organized to be even more efficient and employees are given an increasingly controlling role. Each department will have the opportunity to customize the system slightly to fit its own processes. So at the end of the road, the system will fit perfectly with every activity within Hudig & Veder.
Besides digitization, supply chain management has become more and more important in recent years and this will remain an important topic in the future. Hudig & Veder has already embraced chain cooperation with its ABC-concept. With our ABC-concept we focus on efficiency and control over the logistic chain. From one central point all logistics operations, Agencies, Bulk and Chartering, are arranged within the chain and communication is significantly improved with 1 contact person.
