About the Project

Najran, March 2016 – SNS, a leading provider of supply chain consultancies and software solutions, is proud to announce it has completed a warehouse assessment consultancy for Najran Cement Company (NCC), a leading producer of cement and other construction material in Saudi Arabia .

NCC is engaged in the production, wholesale and retail trade of cement and other construction materials. The company produces Ordinary Portland Cement (OPC) and Sulfate Resistant Cement (SRC). With a production capacity of around 15,500 tons per day, NCC is the fifth largest cement producer in the Kingdom. To ensure a smooth operation and minimum down-time, NCC hired SNS to assess their current warehouse operations for spare parts.

The objectives of the study were to identify any gaps in the warehousing operation and to provide solutions to overcome them. SNS consultants were requested to base their assessment on best practices in similar sites. The team spent several days on-site conducting surveys, meeting with management and staff as well as reviewing the existing processes and systems in use. The data collected was then analyzed and a detailed presentation prepared and delivered to management. The solutions provided focused on improving the warehousing infrastructure, maximizing site security in addition to optimizing existing processes by eliminating unnecessary stop or suggesting system automation.

“Our senior management was very happy with the outcome and recommendations of the study”, said Dr. Badr Al Johar, CEO of Najran Cement. “SNS consultants were highly competent, and truly demonstrated the role of consultant who works with the client to deliver best results.”

“It was a great opportunity to work alongside Dr. Johar and his team in NCC on their warehouse operations,” said Mario Ghosn, General Manager of SNS. “With yet another vertical added to our consulting portfolio, SNS is proving once more that it is capable of supporting any logistics operation.”
