Importance of a supply chain strategy
There is an ever-increasing demand on businesses as customer expectations grow. Costs must be lower, range must be bigger, and orders should be fulfilled instantly in a way that is the most convenient.
Supply chain and logistics strategic planning
A roadmap to implementation of overall strategies aligned with business objectives and developing a long-term plan of how a site or campus should be used.
Regionalisation and centralisation distribution
Identifying potential range grouping that would add significant cost, control, response speed, and inventory benefits considering all up and downstream effects and risks. Similarly, exercises are done for decoupling.
Business case development
Building business cases with facts that effectively communicate a strategy and its objective.
Channels to market
Use existing or engineer new infrastructure to target and fulfill new customer segments.
Gearing up for click and collect e-commerce, and/or brick and mortar store fulfillment.

Modelling transport networks to understand response time and distance to market, cost and complexity, and the interaction between distribution centers.
