Strategic Definition - Network Design
We design effective networks that deliver excellent results
Total Logistics design cost effective supply chain networks serving your customers in the most appropriate way.
A supply chain network is a collection of distribution centres and cross docking points, strategically positioned between the clients’ supply and demand points.
Our consultants work closely with clients to identify the best supply chain network for their businesses in terms of cost, service, sales channels and sustainability. We achieve this by combining the results from our Insight modelling tools with our extensive experience of developing solutions around the world.
Our models take into account current and future inbound and outbound transport flows, warehousing requirements, inventory holding and customer service requirements. Our consultants typically look at a planning horizon of 5 - 7 years. Costs and service levels are provided for a range of network options, based around different numbers, locations and types of distribution centres. The options analysis normally includes the comparison of manual and automated warehousing systems.
The output from a network design project is a road map to show the transition from your current network to a new solution.
