The Logistics Network is what links manufacturers, suppliers, wholesalers, retailers and consumers; and is therefore a key component within the Supply Chain.
Transport, warehouse and distribution centre operations are what link manufacturers to end consumers (directly or in-directly). Dependent upon a strategic planning process, the logistics network within supply chains relies heavily upon businesses taking a holistic perspective at the heart of planning their supply chain processes.
The expert Logistics Consultants at The Supply Chain Consulting Group (SCCG) have undertaken a range of UK and European Logistics Infrastructure and Network Reviews, Strategic and Tactical Development and Optimisation projects (including Implementation Support when required) for many companies and organisations including major UK and European retailers, FMCG suppliers, e-commerce operations, Manufacturers, Wholesalers, Utilities and Construction companies and Third-Party Logistics providers.
Network Logistics planning and design involves building transport, inventory and location strategies around your customer service goals, ensuring the total package achieves the best service at the lowest cost. Companies often devote considerable time & expense in ‘optimising’ only one element of the network, failing to notice the negative cost effects this may have elsewhere.
The crucial element in any Logistics Planning and Network Design Strategy is building all the constraints and variables into a single dynamic business model. The team at SCCG are highly experienced at developing these types of models and have the skills to not only build the data model quickly, but to then produce an optimised solution using various programming techniques, and of course, experience, expertise, and some common sense.
We regularly undertake Logistics Network Design and optimisation projects with our clients, either as a total review or in specific modules including:
Building transport, inventory and location strategies around your customer service goals. Developing a logistics infrastructure that meets your business goals.
Our knowledgeable Supply Chain Consultants have built Cost-to-Serve models to allow companies to unlock hidden profit potential by understanding the costs involved in serving specific customers and products. Understanding each clients’ individual priorities and the specific complexities of each business; The SCCG team carefully utilise specific models, in order to custom-build solutions for each client.
Synonymous with Supply Chain is Inventory Optimisation, for which our Supply Chain Consultants use ‘Inventory Modelling’ to establish the correct level of stock for any given situation – balancing the need to maintain a high-level of customer service with the desire to minimise working capital.
As part of the Global Supply Chain – Import, Export and Logistics – is the part of the supply chain processes that plans, implements, and controls the efficient, effective forward and reverse flow and storage of goods, services, and related information between the point of origin and the point of consumption in order to meet customs and customer requirements.
Inventory modelling can be used to define the correct stocking policy for a large range of SKUs – for example, which SKUs should be stocked in local branches, and which should be held in one national centre.
