Independent, data-driven solutions for a competitive edge
Consultancy & Solutions is driven by one over-riding principle: to use data-driven analytics to help our customers improve their increasingly complex supply chains. As an independent party we are committed to offering advice and solutions that are unbiased, and as such only in the best interests of our customers. This combination of independence and expert analytics helps our customers achieve the competitive edge they need to thrive.
World-class analytics and implementable solutions
Our projects can range from tactical to highly strategic, and are always accompanied by real-world pragmatism. We use proven change management techniques, making sure to involve a broad field of stakeholders from different levels but also different functions. This helps us understand your business, combine different points of view, create buy-in for change and address practical implications to create implementable solutions.
Our findings and recommendations are based on fact-based analytics, supported by world-class tools and a thorough understanding of the logistics industry and its associated processes – especially when it comes to process optimization and change management. This combination of practical knowledge and powerful modelling capabilities unlocks great value for our customers.
Our projects always follow a structured approach, tailored to our customers’ needs. Close collaboration with customers from the very beginning is crucial to developing the best possible solutions. For instance, the use of interviews to create ‘what-if’ scenarios is extremely helpful. It allows us to gain a good understanding of potential bottlenecks and concerns, and then assess a wide variety of options to address them through carefully chosen solutions.
Enhancing operations throughout the chain
Consultancy & Solutions focuses on a variety of areas. We can perform network modelling and transport optimization to realign your transport flows, ensuring that you get the right level of service at the right level of cost. We can conduct warehouse optimization activities, such as defining the right mix of warehouse sizes and locations for your specific needs. We can work with you to improve your inventory policies, looking at where you keep your inventory and in what quantities. And we can look at your product portfolio strategies and operating models.
Once we begin a first project, we often uncover other potential areas for improvement. Typically, this then evolves into multiple assignments that grow into long-lasting customer partnerships. Our greatest sense of satisfaction comes from our customers’ success, as they decide to implement our proposed solutions and reap the benefits of their optimized supply chain activities.
