ROA will take a deep dive into our client's current supply chain operating model. We give an independent look at the overall supply plan, keeping the focus on what the company does best and identify areas for improvement. When looking at supply chain planning, we believe the future state begins with the end in mind “what is the future goal for the supply chain network”.

We take into consideration company-owned distribution vs. 3PL partnerships, freight mix, and understand transit day service goals. We model optimal DC networks, (2 vs. 3 vs. 4 DC’s) and the impacts on transit days vs. carrying costs. We work to understand if customer shipments/backorders are sent from a non-optimal DC and review freight-related challenges, i.e., oversized pallets, hazardous materials, and specialized carriers. We analyze regional data to include available warehouse space and triple net costs as well as 3PL partner availability. We work to capture ever-evolving labor costs by the market which includes details on the significant variations by region.

Transportation analysis looks at both outbound and inbound spending. For outbound, we deep dive into the current freight mix (Parcel/LTL/TL/intermodal) using data provided by current freight partners or the internal ERP. We determine centers of gravity with the customer base, a critical decision point when determining optimal DC locations. For inbound ROA looks at domestic vs. international supplier mix including the impact of transit times for inland destination from overseas containers and inter DC transfer costs. We can study your supply chain and assist with inventory balancing models. With the global supply chain challenges, we can help companies prepare contingency planning related to external geopolitical factors and remain agile.

Logistics Consulting Service Areas

Strategy

Effective Logistics Process Solutions aim to improve the efficiency of the operations, ensuring customer satisfaction, and increase productivity. Logistics firm should embrace the technology for increasing productivity. With the use of logistics software, the entire base of logistical operations was streamlined and helped eliminate some of the hassles involved in the process.

Transportation Analysis

Analyze the complete design and engineering which goes behind making a transportation operation successful. We consider all forms of transportation: parcel, LTL, FL, intermodal, and air. Visualize transportation data to give your business a competitive advantage.

Assessment

Logistics process optimization is incomplete without integrating measurement, analysis, and feedback. When you deploy new strategies, you need to measure the output. Measurement tools and software should be integrated that easily show the success or failure of the strategy. Your future planning is heavily dependent on the measured information.

Selection

A Logistical Process Solution tries to find the best tool for manufacturing and distributing goods by considering how the market uses these products. As part of this process, a company should always consider the location of a product and analyze the various factors associated with these locations. These tools should integrate information, inventory, production, warehousing, personnel, materials, packaging, and secure delivery of the final products.

Supply Chain Network Optimization

Analyze the supply chain architecture (demand planning, facilities location & product flow between sites), supply chain planning (strategic deployment of inventory planning, balancing supply & demand, and supply chain execution (systems-oriented: WMS, TMS, & BI). The supply chain network design and optimization process enable businesses to maximize gross profit, minimize operating expenses and create a successful customer experience.

Implementation

Having a logistics management software can guarantee more efficiency and control over the logistical and supply chain operations. It means substituting the existing methods with a software-centric solution as well as addressing business needs and then choosing a solution that wraps around the current processes.
