Syngenta
Syngenta achieves 20 percent cost savings by outsourcing logistics

Until recently, the logistics operation at Syngenta’s production facility in the Belgian town of Seneffe was inefficient. 

The manufacturer of crop protection agents enlisted Groenewout’s help to turn things around. That ultimately led to the outsourcing of all the logistics activities, including the loading and unloading at Seneffe. 

The result: a 20 percent reduction in costs. Luis Omana, site engineering manager from Syngenta: “More importantly, in view of the strongly seasonal nature of our business, we’ve turned our fixed costs into variable ones.”
