BP Alaska Awards Supply Chain Mgmt Services Contract

Advanced Supply Chain International and BP Exploration (Alaska) have signed a new contract for supply chain management services, ASCI announced today.

The contract will replace an existing agreement that expires next month, under which ASCI has provided supply chain management support to BPXA since 1999. Supply chain management is the process by which goods are acquired, transported, received, stored and delivered to their ultimate destination. The ASCI contract scope includes assistance with procurement, warehouse operations, inventory control, vendor documentation management and infield delivery of materials. The services will be performed on Alaska's North Slope and in Anchorage by approximately 180 ASCI employees. The agreement also includes the use and support of ASCI's innovative suite of web-based e-commerce software tools.

Under the new agreement, ASCI will work closely with BPXA to support BPXA's supply chain management organization. Scott Hawkins, ASCI President, said, "This agreement aligns us well with BPXA's new strategic directions and positions us to serve BPXA's needs in the years to come. We are grateful to BPXA for their support over the years. We look forward to helping our valued customers continue to raise the bar on supply chain management performance."
