While the focus of our logistics consulting approach is on doing (not just recommending), we’re often called upon to help our clients assess their current logistics or supply chain position. They want to know:
- What is my current customer service level?
- What and where are my hidden costs?
- What are the risks in my current inventory practices?
- Where are staff more critical than process?
- Do you have enough staff and equipment or too much?
- Do you have physical security of our products?
For some clients, a logistics or warehousing audit is required by corporate policy. For others, it forms part of a wider long-term strategy. And for some, it’s just about peace of mind. Whatever your reasons, there are times when you simply must know where you currently are, before deciding where you’re headed.
Return on investment
In line with our focus on doing, we make sure our logistics and warehousing audits are cost-effective. This minimises the risk; we like our clients to feel comfortable that the return on investment - after implementing our recommendations - will justify the initial expense.
