Logistics Network Optimization

Through the process of supply-chain network modeling, our Logistics Network Optimization studies identify the ‘lowest cost’ network options to achieve the desired service levels by answering these critical questions:

 
  1. What is the optimum number and location of distribution centers? What is the respective role, capacity and size of each facility in the network?

  2. How would an alternative network perform in terms of logistics cost and delivery performance as compared to the current state?

  3. What changes need to be made to support anticipated growth?

  4. How should the recommended network be implemented?

Our process to develop an optimized network solution delivers a
comprehensive evaluation of alternatives with realistic budget estimates, achievable implementation plans, and a reliable project ROI.
