Supply chains are becoming increasingly complicated and controlling cost is a key factor that puts and keeps any company in a competitive position. The company's distribution network plays a key role in controlling the cost of doing business.
An optimized distribution network can be designed and developed to minimize costs by providing the customer the right goods or services, at the right cost, in the right quantity, place, and time. For many companies, controlling distribution costs is about creating a balance between warehousing, logistics and transportation.
Some of the analyses we perform during a distribution optimization assessment project include:
- Demand Analysis
- Transportation Analysis
- Economic Analysis
- Alternatives Analysis
- Service Times
