Dealing with Rising Supply Chain Costs

Tim Van Mieghem

Partner at The ProAction Group

Relationships are important, especially the ones you have with each and every member of your supply chain. But sometimes, as our guest on this edition of “Deal Talk” might tell you, our long-term relationships can cloud our judgement when it comes to the bottom line.

When was the last time you put your materials or distribution needs up for bidding? Tim Van Mieghem, partner at The ProAction Group in Chicago, has seen it all. Jeff Allen speaks with Tim about the warning signs and what you can do to help get your supply chain costs under control so more money goes to your bottom line.
