As a leading branded manufacturer in UK and Europe, their large network of 20 factories supplies their customers via 34 DCs in 9 countries using 12 LSPs resulting in multi-modal logistics spend >£100m p.a
We put forward a five point plan to develop a full network strategy that would deliver sustainable benefits to their supply chain network:
Review their existing logistics network structure of depots across ambient, chilled and frozen regimes as part of an end-to-end logistics review
Create a model that would capture and compare the logistics costs across networks and geographies to identify the logistics procurement opportunities for any changes within the network
Calculate the optimal number and location of DC’s for the current and future potential supply scenarios
Establish a ‘road map’ reflecting current contract term dates and proposed factory changes to move towards a lower cost, more optimised DC network, able to deliver business growth
Provide the RFQ framework and targets to enable each country to secure the savings identified
