  • Have Due Diligence carried out on the AVL that reduces risks to a known level.
  • Have all warehouse and logistics operations running in line with the program strategy.
  • Be able to measure both the input and output requirements of the program in a timely and consistent manner.
  • Implementation / mobilisation of agreed solutions across the BU in harmony with operational teams to ensure no adverse impact if felt by the BU. Drive adoption of preferred solution to achieve best value solutions.
