Solutions for Supply Chain Efficiency

Logistics and distribution is typically a low-margin industry, heavily reliant on a high volume of activity to generate profit. Therefore, for logistics and distribution companies ensuring the scalability and reliability of their back-office business systems, while achieving operational efficiencies, is of crucial importance they require enhanced inter-system communication between their supply chain management (SCM), electronic data interchange (EDI), and other enterprise systems. They also need to automate any processes currently performed manually to reduce human error, save time, and lower costs. The more adaptable and flexible their IT infrastructure, the smoother and more efficient will be their transition to new systems.

Implementation & Start Ups:

  • Implementations of new facilities and operations are notorious for being under-resourced or staffed by inexperienced people. Yet this is the time when it is essential to have people on the job who have been in these situations before and are capable of dealing with issues so as not to jeopardise cost, time or quality or to lose sight of the principles that the project was based on. We “have been there before” and can support your implementation

Operational Recovery:

  • Many people in logistics have some experience of operations that are under-performing or implementations that have failed. When this happens the people at the sharp end are usually burnt-out or under so much pressure that they are unable to plan and prioritise; simple remedies seem to be accompanied by unassailable hurdles. We have a good track record of “getting rid of the noise” and creating sensible plans to bring underperforming operations up to scratch.
