Philip Morris International (PMI) has significantly transformed its supply chain to support the shift towards a smoke-free future. The development of new products for PMI, such as e-cigarettes, nicotine pouches, and heated tobacco products is bringing about a fundamental change in PMI’s supply chain organization resulting in a longer supply chain, more complex sourcing, manufacturing processes and portfolio management. There’s also the need for additional capabilities, such as mo-re sophisticated forecasting, and stronger integration between the different parts of the supply chain. The new centralized and standardized platform "Sync Hub" provides a complete, digital in-sight into the planning and distribution processes.
Integrated risk management is one of the core enablers for agile, flexible and reliable supply chains, allowing PMI to simulate different scenarios to avoid production downtime even in crisis situations. Sync Hub brings the required standardization, flexibility and agility to PMI’s organization and processes − effectively supporting their transformation.
Philip Morris International is a leading international tobacco company working to deliver a smoke-free future and evolving its portfolio for the long term to include products outside of the tobacco and
nicotine sector. The company’s current product portfolio primarily consists of cigarettes and smoke-free products.
