the 4PL provider’s best people, leading innovations and best technology. The single client platform enabled a Shell-tailored solution with dedicated focus.
Following the strategy development phase, a number of pilots were implemented to test and refine the new 4PL solution. Accenture worked closely with Shell through the pilots, conducting initial logistics management assessments, supporting supplier selection, and driving the co-creation of the solution design with the 4PL suppliers. This ensured that the 4PL solution was appropriate and tailored to meet Shell’s local business challenges.
Once the pilots had been successfully implemented, Accenture helped train the Shell LMS team and moved into a supporting role for subsequent 4PL assessments and implementations. As the number of deployments grew, Accenture helped Shell to define the long-term systems and category strategies before handing them over to the newly established LMS category and global logistics discipline teams. LMS is now an established part of the Shell logistics strategy.
