How did it all start ?
Let Edouard tell you the story of how he created ABC Supply Chain.
My journey
I’m Edouard Thieuleux, originally from Bordeaux, France (known for its wines, especially near Saint-Emilion). I initially moved away from home to pursue a double master’s degree in Engineering and Commerce in the northern part of France.

Interestingly enough, I didn’t acquire my expertise in supply chain management through my academic pursuits 😅, despite having two master’s degrees. They were too focused on theory. 

Instead, I’ve honed my supply chain skills over the past 15 years while working on fascinating projects across seven different countries: France, Malaysia, Brazil, Australia, Portugal, UK, USA.
My experience

I acquired supply chain skills through experience working in various industries, including:

  • Retail
  • E-commerce
  • Manufacturing
  • Construction
  • FMCG (Fast-Moving Consumer Goods)
  • Pharmaceutical

During this time, I had the opportunity to work with companies of different sizes and types, such as:

  • Global firms that operate in more than 60 countries, like Decathlon, Coty, and Red Bull
  • Fast-growing SMEs (Small and Medium Enterprises)
  • Retailers who needed to adapt their strategies due to the rise of e-commerce platforms
  • VSEs (Very Small Enterprises) with entrepreneurs who lack the time and resources to optimize their supply chain and inventory management
Throughout my career, I have held various positions, including:

  • Intern/Trainee in a warehouse
  • Supply Chain/Logistics/Omni-Commerce Project Manager
  • Collaborated with MIT in developing supply algorithms
  • Demand Planning Manager
  • S&OP (Sales and Operations Planning) Manager
  • Supply Chain Manager
  • Supply Chain Director
  • Supply Chain Consultant
  • Executive Mentors & Coach
  • Instructor
  • Entrepreneur
But regardless of the language or industry, I have always faced the same challenge:
“How to find the right balance between inventory levels and customer service while guaranteeing a profitable supply chain.”
I asked myself :
  • What are the best companies in the world for supply chain and inventory management?
  • How do these companies operate?
  • Who are the top experts in this field?
  • Which methods are most effective?
  • What are the best algorithms and mathematical formulas to use?
  • What are the best tools and software available?
  • What are the recommended Excel features? (Even with the implementation of expensive ERPs)
  • What are the appropriate KPIs to measure performance?
  • How can performance be maintained in the long term?
The solution

I ended up discovering the key responses to all my questions. And contrary to what some experts or consultants may claim, optimizing your supply chain is not so complicated. It requires 5 key points:

  • Focus 20/80 on what really matters
  • Reliable data
  • Step-by-step methods
  • Simple tools
  • Regular monitoring

This was the starting point of Abcsupplychain.
