Not too many years ago, if you were the only supplier for a region, you could get away with a little inefficiency - the product didn't HAVE to be there next day, the price could be a little higher more and so on. Your customers possibly even saw this as charming and you could always negotiate on specific orders if necessary.
If you have continued with this approach, chances are you have found margins are falling, leaner competitors are moving in and business is getting harder and harder.
Assuming you don't want to sell out to one of those leaner competitors, you now have work out how to compete and win - nobody is going to give you a free hand-out so this essentially means improving the way you work to achieve more.
This is not magic, but it is a science. You need to understand the challenges you face and be realistic about where your organisation is. This knowledge gives you power and you can build a vision of where you want to be. You can then devise a change plan to get you there, all the while working on removing bottle-necks, increasing agility and preparing for the next challenge.
