We improve distribution operations. How? By
applying our combined expertise and talent into providing the following
consulting, planning and systems implementation services:
We help you understand how to get from where you are now to where you want
to be by making positive changes in vendor relationships, inventory
levels, product flow, forecasting ability, or transportation. You'll be
where you want to be on time and within budget.
Distribution Network Optimization
We'll crunch all the data you can give us and we obtain about your
distribution network—supplier sources; transportation costs, regional
labor and property information; and customer locations—using software
system and our proprietary methods. You won't have to take time away from
doing what you do best and still make optimum distribution network
We apply techniques to develop standards, validate them and, when
appropriate, utilize labor management software. Your labor management
program will allow you to manage resources more effectively, bolster
efficiency and accuracy, maximize individual productivity and
accountability potential and control costs.
Assessment & Productivity Improvement
We can help you cut as much as 40% of your material handling and
storage costs by addressing product slotting and other inventory
management issues, as well as processes. Our assessment will identify
short- and long-term opportunities to enhance operations within a
facility. You will be able to reduce costs, increase inventory turns,
improve space utilization and maximize return on investment.
We begin analysis of your facility by compiling all available
data into a needs document defining appropriate sizing, layout and systems
requirements for each functional area. Then we devise alternate concepts
and write economic justifications for each. Ultimately, you will receive a
customized-for-your-business facility plan in detail.
Systems Selection & Implementation
We help you select information systems for your distribution operations or
help implement the systems you’ve selected. First, we translate your
business goals into a requirements document, then develop a list of
qualified vendors, distribute RFP packages, review bids, and contract with
vendors you select. We can manage the implementation, test the system
thoroughly, train your employees, and even provide post-implementation
support. We’ll make sure you achieve your business objectives and reap
all the benefits information systems have to offer.
Handling Systems Selection & Implementation
First, we create a specification document translating your business goals
into well-designed material handling systems and communicate your
expectations to potential vendors. We develop a list of qualified vendors,
distribute RFP packages, review bids and contract with vendors you select.
We can then manage the implementation project from installation, through
testing and training, to start-up. Your material handling equipment will
solve your problems and fit your needs perfectly.
