"If the purchasing function really wants to count as a value-added within the organisation, the very first priority is to map out strategic purchasing. This map will be dependent on the maturity of the lifecycle of the purchasing department and the overall structure of the organisation. This two-day programme helps to get a full grasp of purchasing through practical examples and the exchange of best practices, all serving as a stepping stone to apply the concepts and models learned."

"I thoroughly enjoyed Vlerick's programme on Purchasing Management. This well-organised course offers fascinating insights into today's world of Procurement and Supply Chain Management. The approach is theoretical and practical at the same time. Real-life cases are being used as a starting point for lively discussions. The interaction with colleagues coming from different industries and from all over the world makes the course even more interesting."

  1. Biscuits suppliers and retailers are setting up a collaboration for sustainable logistics

    The biscuits and pastries we buy have often had a complex, expensive and non-environmentally friendly journey from supplier to store. So four major Belgian biscuit suppliers have decided to consolidate their deliveries. This means there will be fewer trucks on the road – and the space in these trucks will be used more efficiently. This is a pilot project from NexTrust as part of the EU’s Horizon 2020 Project.
  2. Oops, sold out…

    “Buy two, get one free, says your supermarket’s promotional folder. Great news! There’s a promotion on your favourite wine and it starts tomorrow. The following day you head straight for the shop in your lunch break, only to find that the shelves are already empty. Oh well, they must have miscalculated the stock. I bet that feels familiar”, says Shari De Baets with a grin. She is a doctoral research associate who recently obtained her PhD based on research that could help prevent such situations.
