Where to locate stock and how to move products around the network most efficiently?
Total Logistics, now part of Accenture, designs cost-effective supply chain networks to meet the increasing demands of businesses and their customers in a digital world.
A supply chain network is a collection of distribution centers and cross-docking points, strategically positioned between the client's supply and demand points.
Our consultants work closely with clients to identify the best supply chain network for their businesses in terms of service, cost, sales channels and sustainability, utilising existing assets where appropriate. We achieve superior results 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 the customer service offer. Costs and service levels are provided for a range of network options, based on different numbers, locations and types of distribution centers.
The output from a network design project is a roadmap to show the transition from your current network to a new solution.
