Identify, evaluate and engage reliable suppliers to minimize lead times and frequent disruptions

Effective supplier sourcing and relationship management can make or break the procurement process. While strong relationships with suppliers can often be challenging to build due to remote locations and limited supplier options, they remain critical to avoid long lead times and unforeseen disruptions.

For mining operations to run smoothly, procurement teams must develop collaborative partnerships, manage contractual agreements, and address potential conflicts with suppliers as quickly as possible. Compliance monitoring of suppliers according to ethical practices and industry standards throughout the supply chain is also needed to avoid regulatory breaches which could disrupt mining operations.

Key Client Challenges:

  1. How do we effectively identify and source reliable suppliers?
  2. How do we ensure our suppliers are complying with ethical practices and industry standards?
  3. How can we leverage technology and data to streamline our compliance monitoring and due diligence processes?
  4. How do we build strong relationships with our suppliers despite being in distant locations?
  5. What are the negotiation techniques we should use to maximize our purchasing power and secure beneficial contracts with our suppliers?

By sourcing and maintaining mutually beneficial relationships with suppliers, mining companies can increase accountability, build trust, and ensure that lead times and disruptions are minimized.
