Adaptability – the Key to a Successful Supply Partnership

News | Mila Partnership, Paul Pearson

Alongside trust and reliability, one of the key elements of any successful supply partnership is surely adaptability. A supplier that can quickly and cost effectively adapt their offering to the specific requirements of each individual customer can be a hugely valuable asset.

Real adaptability though still represents a significant challenge for many suppliers, because it requires a business to be agile enough to manage deviation from ‘the norm’ without any significantly negative impact on efficiency or profitability.
