Total Supply Chain Management (SCM)

Simply put, Ciano SCM advises and manages the purchase, movement and storage of products, materials, and finished goods, from point of origin to point of consumption, across South America, North America, Europe, Africa, and Asia. In reality the supply chain is far more complicated, but in principle, this is what we do.

Over the past decade we have expanded and entered new industry sectors, ventured into new geographies, broadened our services and used technology to manage the increasing pace and complexity of our client’s supply chain.

Today, we are focusing heavily on the growing markets in South America, Asia and Africa and are concentrating on one of the things we do best – introducing market-leading supply chain solutions in highly challenging environments. Our aim is to bring fresh thinking to any supply chain, responding intelligently to business change.

We analyze our client’s supply chains, and recommend changes to promote sustainability, value and quality, whilst identifying opportunities and capitalizing on them. We structure implementation of changes that bring the most value to each and every client.

Our divisions and services, such as procurement, logistics, warehousing and distribution, are critical components of our supply chain, and collectively power our SCM.

Our Supply Chain Division leverages our understanding, resources and networks to ensure that our client’s supply chains create a competitive advantage and flexibility for their fast-changing customer needs.

We undertake large and complicated SCM projects, in locations that are war-impacted, offshore, and austere, and locations with undefined import/export and operating procedures. Tackling the many operational challenges is our forte, and the way in which we overcome them is our differentiator. We manage critical supply chains where any disruption can mean the difference between success and failure for some of the most important missions around the world. With access to a dedicated air-fleet we can charter emergency air-cargo delivery, and our team have done so for some of the world’s most famed cargo operations.

We hold vast experience in the supply chain management of bonded items; food items; water; fuel; generators; camp supplies; medicines; construction materials; vehicles; spare parts; heavy equipment; general assortments for retail operations; and kitchen, security and communications equipment.
