Junior Consultant Supply Chain Advanced Solutions

“With your passion for optimizing processes, you help customers strengthen their supply chain.”

How do you reduce the risk of breakage of bottles during the production process? What is the most efficient routing to bring groceries from the distribution center to customers? These are typical supply chain questions that you encountered during your study Supply Chain Management, Econometrics or your previous experience in Operations Research. As Junior Consultant Supply Chain Advanced Solutions at Districon, you solve these issues by creating and implementing customized (AIMMS) applications together with a dedicated team.

You make the difference for clients such as Heineken, Albert Heijn or Action. The solutions that you manage support supply chain processes. Think of a production planning solution for a manufacturer or creating a solution for a S&OP/IBP cycle. You will work in the supply chain analytics team consisting of about thirty colleagues. Together with all the supply chain consultants you continuously challenge each other to get the best out of yourself.
