Logistics Network Design
Providing optimal logistics network designs.
Logistics networks are a connection of all the points in the supply chain where material moves to, and from. Logistics networks are the ‘life blood’ of a business. Over time these networks often become fragmented; as territories change, customer ordering patterns fluctuate and as companies invest and divest, so the network can lose its efficiency.
It’s critical to periodically review your network, effectively ‘defragmenting’ and ensuring maximum service at the most efficient cost. Delivering efficiency in a logistics network is probably the most major lever in reducing logistics costs. Correctly aligning and optimising infrastructure and resource to supply and demand points can have a significant return on investment.
Whether your business is seeking a total network review, or analysis of individual components of the network such as warehouse location or transport route modifications, we are here to help.

Getting fleet profiles and transport routes fully optimised can deliver real bottom line benefits. Not only is there financial gain to be had, but improved routing also facilitates improved service level performance. In modern supply chains, where deliveries are time critical and customer loyalty is not a given, transport logistics is a key market diffrentiator.
We are able to model the most efficient fleet profile and transport routing for both trunking and delivery networks. This can be done with a view to implementing an in-house fleet or benchmarking a 3rd party logistics provider solution.
