Global Benchmark Study

Intense pressure to reduce costs, innovate products and expand into new markets has manufacturers worldwide shifting production and spreading out supply chain and other operations well beyond their home geographies. After an in-depth benchmarking exercise, Deloitte has created an insightful series of reports that look at the increasingly complex and fragmented supply chain environment, implications for manufacturers, resulting challenges and best practices. 

To date, more than 800 companies from Asia Pacific (representing 10 percent of the study), Central and Eastern Europe (10 percent), North America (34 percent) and Western Europe (44 percent) participated in the benchmark study. Industries represented include aerospace and defense; automotive; industrial and consumer products; life sciences; process, paper and chemicals; high technology and telecommunications equipment.
