Establish logistics consultants can take clients from broad-stroke strategy to practical tactics in logistics design engagements. Our solutions enable clients to optimally deliver finished goods to customers without losing sight of business needs and customer requirements.
Within a short period of time, we can:
- Develop long-range plans to carry out corporate and marketing objectives in the physical distribution system configuration as well as in staffing and performance.
- Determine and benchmark current productivity levels and costs through physical distribution cost audits.
- Obtain transportation cost reduction through consolidations, rate negotiation, private/contract carriage and mode analysis.
- Establish optimal logistics functions, operations and facilities.
The fundamental selection of a distribution channel and the resulting structure of the product delivery system involves the consideration of sales and marketing issues as well as logistical issues of sourcing, production, warehousing, stocking and delivery. This often requires an evaluation of the feasibility of direct sales and the role of distributors. In addition, we use computer models to examine the broad questions of, “How many distribution centers do I need? Where do I locate them? What inventory should they contain?” We use client data, our knowledge of service performance requirements and our computer software to design a logistics strategy.

- Best practices from the best companies in the world
- With you all the way from strategy development through the implementation phase
