Diageo's Supply Chain Overhaul

Beverage giant Diageo is reaping the benefits after investing in a major supply chain transformation.

The world's biggest distiller is moving operations to a more local level and shrinking regional operations. "For us, the transformation was quite significant because it was end to end," he said. 

Paul Gallagher, President, NA Supply at Diageo told the IndustryWeek Best Plants conference that the move is designed to save over $100 million over three years, respond to emerging markets better and absorb recent acquisitions.
