Distribution and supply chain optimization

Successfully fulfilling contracts and maximizing market opportunities requires highly visible, flexible and responsive distribution and supply chain management. We offer non-linear process simulation technologies that enable optimal feedstock selection, coupled with technologies that allow plant personnel to schedule and simulate operations on an integrated supply chain topological model allowing quick identification of potential imbalances between interdependent operations. For suppliers to other producers we also offer cloud-based services to monitor product inventories and process operations in your customer’s facilities to extend the visibility of your supply chain beyond the plant.

RELATED CASE STUDY

Read our distribution and supply chain optimization case study

A major US Gulf Coast multinational oil and gas company asked KBC to perform an assessment of crude oil supply and storage, including leased terminal facilities and piping supplies. Their objective was to increase flexibility in storage and transfer methods to enable processing of a greater variety of crude oils and improve the refinery margin.
