Our philosophy of consulting is based around the idea that the client must be measurably better off in terms of the business outcomes that really matter such as growth, productivity, customer retention, quality and compliance. Often the key to dramatic improvement is to unlock resources and capabilities that often already exist within the organization and redeploy to better effect without the need for major investment.
We have applied this philosophy successfully with Fortune 500 companies across the world in Europe, Asia and Americas since 2005 with repeat business with many long-standing clients stretching back many years being a notable ingredient of our success.
Tactical initiatives across a range of supply chain operation include:
Warehouse and Distribution Centre Design
In today’s globally interconnected supply chains, the warehouse, whether in manufacturing, distribution or logistics services is now a high technology hub that is critical to the efficiency, margins and responsiveness of the business.
The judicious deployment of infrastructure, equipment and systems to underpin and enhance the performance of people and processes is the difference between those businesses that thrive and those that left behind.
We have designed dozens of warehouse facilities, both conventional and automated, in manufacturing, distribution and logistics services in Europe, Asia and the Americas.
Distribution Network Design
Distribution transport is often the highest single cost element of an organization’s logistics operations. The location of central warehousing and transit warehouse facilities together with the configuration and optimization of delivery routes and carrier selection has a dramatic impact on service, quality and efficiency.We can help you leverage the capabilities of transport networks to unlock value reduce waste and deliver cost efficiency, service enhancement and improved environmental compliance
Productivity and Process Improvement
The harmonious interaction of people, processes and technology is the crucible that forges high productivity in logistics operations. This a rapidly evolving area as Industry 4.0 brings with it the commercially viable advent of robotics and augmented reality into supply chain and logistics operations such as self-drive vehicles, materials handling robots, pick-by-vision and the internet of things all technologies that will shape the processes and productivity of supply chain and logistics operations across all sectors in the immediate future.
We have spent many years analysing the structure and components of work and designing processes and methods to enhance the performance of logistics operations in warehousing, manufacturing and transport.
