    Plan for the future by redesigning your network

    Nov 1, 2019 2:03:00 PM / by Cecilia Noguera

    The escalating growth of some industries has created a window of opportunity to reconsider a company’s supply chain and strategy.

    One industry to consider is the commercial construction industry.

    Successful companies recognize that their continuous growth requires ongoing planning for the future which enables them to meet the demands of the market by building a stronger distribution network.

    Plan for the future by redesigning your network

    Projects of this nature may take extended periods of time due to an organization’s complexity, which may include a series of Distribution Centers and numerous geographies, but the results can be spectacular.  Companies need to take into account their current situation, their desired future state and each locations growth potential in order to finally analyze different scenarios and select the most advantageous opportunity.   

     In Europe, one of our industrial clients wanted to plan for their future.  They wanted to increase product availability and customer satisfaction by offering better lead-time to their customers.  They were also open to modifying the overall future distribution within Europe to support the planned activity growth.  With GEODIS’ Network Design solution, they were able to reduce transportation times by 1 or 2 days throughout EMEA and reduce the number of Distribution Centers from 11 to 8.  These changes helped them increase their customer satisfaction KPI’s while acquiring new tools and methodologies to ensure a successful future.
