Warehouse and distribution footprint
Use the ultimate logistics setup to satisfy customers and stay competitive
Companies are relocating manufacturing and sourcing to regions with lower labour costs to stay competitive. This affects the efficiency of warehousing and distribution. But which elements, in particular, will be strategically important in the next two years?
Operating model for your supply chain
Reduce delivery times and increase customer loyalty by streamlining the operating model for your supply chain.
Supply network strategy
The market is more erratic than ever. Customer stock levels are becoming so lean that fast replenishment is needed. Therefore, it is important that supplier and customer relationships are transparent and well-managed.
Net working capital
By reducing the net working capital (NWC), you release funds for investments and new growth opportunities. Beyond these effects, NWC reduction will also improve logistic processes and increase your stakeholders’ enterprise value.
Operations development and organisation
Continuous change is necessary just to keep up with competitors. To overtake them, you must identify the next step and make your move before anyone else.
Operational due diligence
Target company analysis is an essential asset during price negotiations between buyer and seller. But its value is only sustainable if the evaluations are based on deep operational understanding.
Process technology strategy
Process flow design relies on material, information and customer processing technologies. When effectively executed, it can significantly increase the impact of your customer service levels and cost-to-serve.
