Achieving Cost Reduction in Southeast Asia

Automotive Expert Drives Company’s Cost Efficiency across Target Markets


A private Southeast Asian automotive company was planning for a cost-reduction initiative to achieve an annual target of 15% to 25% cost efficiency across several Southeast Asian markets.

The GLG Approach

GLG identified a Regional Director of Global Purchasing and Supply Chain from a leading OEM from within our network to serve as a project lead. They provided actionable insights on automotive parts pricing, while compiling a comprehensive list of potential suppliers in the Southeast Asian region.


The GLG Network Member provided local pricing insights on a predefined list of automotive parts and facilitated initial conversations between short-listed suppliers and the client across the target markets. The measured output made a significant impact on the client’s cost-reduction goals.

A two-month-long engagement with the automotive industry veteran brought about constructive conversations between potential suppliers and the client resulting in actionable insights that helped the client achieve cost efficiency across the organization.
