Henkel is intensifying its supply chain optimisation efforts, a pivotal aspect of its 2022 merger of two consumer brands. The company aims to consolidate operations, enhance productivity, and achieve cost savings through streamlined logistics and production. CEO Carsten Knobel highlighted over 800 projects launched to optimise supply chain networks and achieve operational excellence. Embracing a 1-1-1 approach in select countries and targeting $271 million in net savings by 2026, Henkel anticipates completing the global rollout by 2025.

Henkel’s progress underscores its commitment to strategic evolution and accelerated growth.
