Linking back over 100 years.

How do we know so much about supply chains? Because we’ve been making products, creating technology and solving problems for over 100 years. Today, you’ll find our solutions across more than 500 manufacturing sites – which means we not only understand supply chains, we’ve created much of the technology that makes them work more efficiently and more cost-effectively. 

Right now, your own supply chain is probably facing the same issues as those of your competitors. Too few personnel. Too much pressure to increase efficiency while reducing cost. Customers and stakeholders who expect you to be environmentally responsible. 

To keep ahead of them, Panasonic Connect allows you combine what you have now, with what you need to go forward. We’re here to help you balance technology with people, to create effective, resilient supply chains.

Where our expertise connects with yours.

Better production quality, uninterrupted delivery, enhanced customer experience – whatever result you’re looking for from improvements to your supply chain, Panasonic has the experience, expertise and people to help you achieve it, in three main areas. 

Manufacturing supply chains.

Maximising productivity while minimising operating expenses and waste – it’s every company’s dream. By helping you make Industry 4.0 a reality, Panasonic Connect makes that possible. 

Logistics supply chains.

With your customers demanding higher delivery volumes at a lower price, we make it our job to help you deliver with speed, accuracy and right-first-time performance. 

Retail supply chains.

From increasing your standards of customer service to reducing human error, our retail technology solutions are designed to allow you to manage your supply chain more effectively.

Gemba Process Innovation.

The Japanese word, Gemba translates, literally, to ‘the actual place.’ For your business, that means the site where value is created or where issues must be resolved. The Panasonic Gemba Process Innovation teams’ expertise is in recognising and understanding your challenges, then working with you and your people to re-evaluate each area where core operations occur. They will then connect the ‘physical’ with the ‘digital’, helping people and technology to come together, to continuously improve your processes and outputs. Vital when you’re being asked to deliver more, with fewer resources.

Helping you reach your sustainability targets.

From fewer truck journeys for logistics companies, to energy saving solutions on factory floors. There are many obvious ways Panasonic Supply Chain Solutions can lower your environmental impact. But there are some surprising methods too. Innovations such as our Electronic Shelf Labels (ESLs) not only eliminate pricing errors by retail staff, they also dramatically lower retailers’ dependency on paper labels. Find out more about the different ways Panasonic can help you take sustainability seriously and improve your green credentials.
