Logistics Benchmarking

The Establish-Davis Logistics Cost and Service Database is an ongoing annual survey that manufacturers, distributors and retailers participate in to receive a customized logistics benchmarking report of logistics cost and service. The benchmarking database (which was launched in 1976) is the longest running, and has the most entries in the logistics industry. The findings are presented each year at the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (cscmp.org) Annual Global Conference. Participation in the Database is free and confidential. It’s easy to participate on-line and our logistics consultants are ready to help you, should you have any questions.

Industry associations, individual corporations wanting to measure up with competitors in specific areas or between internal sites are all typical clients for these services.

The Establish Davis Logistics Costs and Services Database includes over 30 years of data describing logistics cost levels, customer service performance, productivity, and operating ratios. It is used by hundreds of companies to compare operations to industry profiles.

Logistics Best Practice

Developed in the mid 1980′s when working with General Electric Co. (GE) to benchmark the practices of 72 divisions and updated continuously based on our experience in the industry and advances in technology, our Supply Chain BEST PRACTICES are used to compare a company’s functional practices to the global best practices, define “gaps” and then suggest actions to move to the best practice. Our BEST PRACTICES extends to all supply chain functions (customer service, transportation, warehousing, manufacturing/distribution, inventory management, sourcing/procurement, etc.).
