Value Networks for Advanced Services

Whitepaper: The importance of Value Networks for delivering Advanced Services

A DHL and Advanced Services Group perspective on future Engineering & Manufacturing Supply Chains

Traditional supply chains are organized around the creation of products. Organizations usually work and collaborate only with their immediate suppliers and customers. Each organization within the supply chain is an independent working entity.

What if there is an alternative way? Rather than focusing on a one-way exchange of resources, emphasis should be on the value which can be created by all and for all partners, through multiple collaborations and contributions to the broader offering.

The second whitepaper in collaboration with DHL focuses on the topic of servitization. The paper casts an eye on servitization in the context of value networks including the respective supply chain and logistics implications.
