POP Customization activities represent a cost of over $14 billion per year within the CPG market -- growing at an annual rate of over 3%.  Customization business processes have a significant impact on your profitability, service levels, and customer satisfaction.  Benchmarking helps companies to proactively identify best demonstrated practices that lead to improved profitability, service, and asset utilization.

The Trade Customization Benchmark Study focuses on obtaining input from a cross-section of cooperating companies.  The study provides participants with insights including:
▪ how customization supply network structures impact costs
▪ outsourcing trends
▪ assembly and fulfillment strategies
▪ planning horizons and cycle times
▪ trade customization practices
