In all of Klabin’s production stages, the Supply Chain team is responsible for the flow of materials and for controlling inventory levels.
The team plays a highly strategic and fundamental role in the capture of efficiency gains.
To execute its mission, it has three areas:
Responsible for acquiring materials, services, raw materials and investments needed to supply the entire productive chain of the Company. It also maintains records of materials and manages inventories and contracts.
Internal service provider that supports the business areas by either acquiring services or managing operations, from harvesting forests and supplying to mills to delivering our products to clients and managing Klabin’s own fleet. It is also responsible for managing the processes of importing and exporting raw materials, equipment, spare parts and final products.
This department ensures the operational efficiency of businesses through the Sales & Operation Planning process and is dedicated exclusively to production planning.
All of Klabin's business activities are guided by ethics, transparency and respect for the principles of sustainability to ensure a solid financial position, social responsibility and environmental preservation. For this, the company seeks suppliers with high quality standards, on-time delivery and good credit conditions that comply with governing law, regulations and tax code and, most importantly, adopt good practices, such as prohibiting child and forced labor and implementing environmental protection measures.
Change in structure
In late 2016, Klabin’s supplier chain management underwent changes with the creation of two new structures: the Operational & Logistics Planning Department, which focuses on the operational integration of the businesses and includes the shipping and distribution of production; and the Procurement Department, which is responsible for acquiring the materials, services, raw materials and investments needed to supply the production units. They perform the functions of the former Supply Chain Department.
This change in Klabin’s structure is aligned with its growth plan. The Planning Department ensures integration among units by acting as the interface between the sales and industrial production teams. Meanwhile, the Procurement Department, which is linked to the Financial Department, is able to draw more effectively on the latter’s technology and financial expertise to optimize the procurement process, especially with regard to tax issues.
The change also captures benefits from the standpoint of managing sustainability in the supply chain, since the Sustainability Committee now is supported by the two departments.
