     Supply Chain Logistics and Transportation
    on the Island of Ireland - An Integrated Study
„Supply chain management offers significant opportunities for
companies located in Ireland to compete in global markets.
InterTradeIreland should ensure it is on the agenda in the Boardroom
of every company in Ireland‟


„The development and implementation of integrated information
systems is a fundamental aspect of supply chain management‟


„InterTrade Ireland should encourage appropriate Government bodies,
trade associations etc to act as „honest brokers‟ in encouraging the
development of collaborative efforts between companies in areas
such as strategic sourcing and effective procurement of materials and
servicing common customer bases‟

           Supply Chain Conference 20 Feb 2003
       Supply Chain Development/Management
           Legislative imperative for InterTradeIreland:-
   “Promotion of north-south trade and supply chains, including
         through business linkages and partnerships ”
                       Strategic imperative:-
                  All Island trade opportunities
SCM involves - company relationships, flows of information,
logistics, manufacturing process and management techniques

ITI‟s corporate plan 2002-2004 highlights a priority area for the
organisation, within the knowledge channel domain of its
strategy, as being: ‘to maximise the potential of supply chain
management on the island’


          Supply Chain Conference 20 Feb 2003
   Programme Principles arising from CMI Report
For InterTradeIreland
    InterTradeIreland must produce ‘added value’
    Be SME focused
    Demonstrate a need to build capacity
    Demonstrate a need for broad solutions
    Be all Ireland in scope
From research and consultation –
    Has to be of value to industry
    Has to build on what is already in place
    Must not duplicate
    Has to be flexible enough to allow different companies,
    sectors and themes to be incorporated
    Has to be sustainable

          Supply Chain Conference 20 Feb 2003
  The Need – An all-Island supply chain programme
Improve competitiveness
Generate innovation
Help „oil‟ cross border trade opportunities
Bridge -
    *   Differences in programme provision across the Island
    *   Differences in capacity to support
    *   ..and share differences in company practice
North/South programme provision versus boundary-less business –
business is borderless, programme provision is not
Apposite timing

            Supply Chain Conference 20 Feb 2003
                   The SCM Forum/Network
The Problem - How to get companies, institutions and partners, to
share best practice and work together cross-border where possible to
apply SCM tools and techniques to raise SME competitiveness
The Solution - The creation of a facilitated all-Island forum/network to:
    •Promote an awareness of supply chain issues and their
    importance to competitiveness
    •Close gaps in capacity to support SME’s in tackling supply chain
    issues
    •Bridge differences in programme provision
    •Share best practice
    •Generate and build on innovative programmes that utilise supply
    chain techniques
    •Raise the competitiveness of SME’s
    •Generate all-island trade opportunities

 SUPPLY CHAINS TO CLUSTERS & NETWORKS

CLUSTERS
•Have established over time a relatively high degree
of collaboration
•Usually based on local / historical / sectoral
agglomerations and supply linkages
•Traditional sectoral specialisation in a relatively
restricted geographical area
•The Italian industrial districts, e.g. the Emilia region,
are good examples of cluster development



         Supply Chain Conference 20 Feb 2003
NETWORKS:
Collaboration is more ad-hoc and less structural

Firms collaborate to satisfy specific needs (R&D,
market information etc.)

Networks of firms are less bound by close
communication

Clusters usually involve networking/Specialised
networks of firms may evolve into clusters


        Supply Chain Conference 20 Feb 2003
NETWORKS & CLUSTERS TO ‘VIRTUAL ORGANISATIONS’

•Between Firms - Adaptive, non-hierarchical forms of
