Arno Dalhuisen

Head of Supply Chain Excellence

Arno Dalhuisen is Global Head of SC Excellence within DSM Nutrional Products. For years Arno is focussed on unleashing the full potential of all to contribute and team up from day-2-day continuous improvements towards strategic value chain improvement projects. In doing so Arno and his team facilitate, coach and train teams from regional to global areas and from shopfloor to leadership level to build continous improvement capability and applying digitalisation techniques within.


Organisations understand that digitalisation is no longer just a necessary contingency to the functioning of enterprises, but an absolute necessity for all future success. Therefore many organisations are advancing on their roadmap of Digital Transformation, but experience rigid challenges on the way especially in the process industry. To face these challenges DSM has developed some supply-chain programs to improve customer service, optimise the cost position and embrace opportunities provided by digital transformation.


2020 was the year supply chains were put to the test more than ever before. Flexibility, sourcing, downscaling and innovation: this was the year in which Supply Chain leaders could make or break their business. Covid-19 forced many companies and entire industries to fundamentally rethink and transform their global supply chain model. Now that the vulnerability of companies is visible it is necessary to look at creative solutions and make the supply chain more resilient. How can companies be better prepared in a world of more uncertainty, market volatility and complexity? And what is required to support visibility, rapid decision-making and flexible response?

If you recognise these challenges, be inspired by this Virtual Round Table in which Arno Dalhuisen, Head of Supply Chain Excellence at DSM, will dive-in to their supply chains key challenges they have faced during the pandemic. He will be discussing the way DSM will be rethinking their Supply Chain Management to be ready for a post-pandemic world.
