Supply Chain Intelligence

In today’s fast paced, developing world, supply chains have become more complex.

The need to map out your end-to-end supply chain, has become more and more important, to understand:

  • Time
  • Risk
  • Cost
  • Profit

Customers come to SMS, as we offer them an understanding of their total landed cost and complete supply chain transparency and traceability, as advanced software solutions continue to transform the supply chain and devices become inter-connected, to create the Internet of Things (IoT).

At SMS we understand that technological changes are transforming manufacturing and supply chains.  3D printing, Industry 4.0 and automation are only three examples of technical advancements and the move towards the smart and connected factory, that is data driven for complete customer control.

By harnessing technology at the speed of innovation, SMS understands how performance is improving year-on-year, especially at the lower volume / higher mix product configuration level.  Competitiveness is being achieved in the UK, which was once considered a higher cost economy.

SMS provides a total smart supply chain management solution, from concept to creation through to our customer, which increases our customers’ flexibility and reduces distribution barriers, turnaround times and overall transportation and product costs.

Product fulfilment and vertical integration with first-rate component capabilities, help OEMs create market-leading products.


  • Reducing capital investments and production costs
  • Accelerating time to market, time to volume, time in market and time to profit

At SMS we ask our customers to consider:


  • A full time, risk, cost and profit assessment of their supply chain
  • Does your production lifecycle reflect the advantages of the new technological supply chain advancements?

SMS helps OEMs to effectively optimize their operational efficiency, by introducing them to a smart supply chain solution to ensure speed, transparency and traceability, avoiding risk, whilst reviewing their total cost of ownership for cost and profit control.

The Lincs & Notts Air Ambulance is one of the UK’s leading Helicopter Emergency Medical Service (HEMS) Charities, funded purely by the generosity of people like you! We are not part of the NHS and not funded by the Government.

At a time when every second counts, the arrival of our iconic yellow helicopter really can mean the difference between life and death.

We transport the equivalent of an A&E department to people suffering from the most serious of illnesses and devastating injuries, providing the best possible treatment as quickly as possible.

This year is an exciting time for the charity as it celebrates its 25th Anniversary and commits to flying 24 hours a day. Since 1994 the Air Ambulance has undertaken over 18900 missions all funded by donations with each mission costing around £2500.
