Operational start-up
Once you have decided to commence operations in a certain jurisdiction the next step will be to establish operations. We can work with you to vet vendors so that you can appoint the right one (one that understands your business and the local environment), develop contractual and procedural documents and establish KPI’s to support compliant business continuity.
Operational review
We will undertake a full review of your operational structure focused on establishing best practice procedures, reviewing the contractual framework, compliance review and historical audits. In addition, we will work with you to create the ‘right’ measures for your business.
Operations management
The dynamics of the modern supply chain often rely on out-sourcing to 3rd parties or company departmental autonomy which can lead to a lack of transparency for trade compliance organisations. Maintaining efficient operations remotely is always a challenge, which is compounded when dealing with complex and obscure laws and regulations.
Opportunity Analysis
Understanding the nuances of a specific country is especially challenging when operating remotely which can result in missed opportunities to reduce cost or improve supply chain operations. We look at your operation objectively focusing on closing the gap between the status quo and your optimal operation.
At BlueBlox we recognise compliance is a critical element to sustainability and that this can only be achieved if all stakeholders fully understand expectations and are committed to meeting them.
