Supply Chain Transformation in EUROPE: Outbound OpsHigh Tech - Europe
One of the world leaders of printing and imaging products, software, solutions and services.
The customer needed to gain a competitive edge reducing at least 10% their European distribution costs.
The complexity of managing more than 8.000 consignees in Europe was a handicap, but on the other hand was an opportunity for cost reduction via complexity management. For managing that complexity, we did a consignee classification that allows us to focus on the main optimization opportunities.
In order to get at least 10% cost reduction, 6 leverage points for outbound inland transport was identified:
- Supply Network Planning
- International Freight
- Direct Shipping
- Deliveries On Wheels
- Scheduled Loops
- Distribution Carrier Optimization
We are showing a summary of the 6 leverage points, and the reduction achieved with each one.
