Supply Chain Challenges in the Hospitality Industry

Companies in the hospitality industry, including hotels and motel chains, possess a large number of properties that are often controlled by franchisees. Possessing multiple properties, however, has created a struggle for these companies as they try to find cost savings in their inbound product flow.

The need to streamline your operating supplies and equipment supply chains clashes with the independent buying power across each franchisee owner’s purchasing decisions. While each hotel property could use multiple, differing suppliers and transportation modes, the trend of the past few years is to leverage that procurement buying power to create strategic sourcing teams.
