Logistic Projects Portfolio
Variance analysis within the context of a logistics budget and changes in the business activities. It allowed for the identification of the extent of the variances, the problem areas and the actions in the decision process to solve the problems.
Variances were identified by cost center and by category (fixed - variable, transport - warehousing - other, cost items). Short term as well as long term action plans have been proposed in order to restore performance and efficiency.
Improve logistics cost management through savings and cost reductions in logistic and commercial elements.
Logistic elements: benchmarking and negotiation of tariffs, changing fixed into variable costs, full use of own assets, reduction of production transfers, ...
Commercial elements: reduce product/plant combinations, optimise product portfolio, revise order profile and transport schemes, ...
This study uncovered the strenghts and weaknesses of the existing business, provided a description of a possible 4PL service offer, opportunities and threats as well as details of the necessary operations and policies. The feasibility study also defined the key success factors, the cost required and values to be attained, the resources required to carry it through and alternative ways to reach the goal.
The feasibility study precedes technical development and project implementation.
This diagnostic tool was used to identify the strenghts, weaknesses, opportunities and threads of an existing player in a niche transport market. It is needed to enable the owners of the firm to identify factors which need to be taken into account when developing further marketing and corporate strategy. The study also examines critical success factors and competencies required.
The project aimed at constructing a model to be used for precise cost accounting. The cost calculation is performed before actual manufacturing activities. The model uses general parameters and basic tables as well as a detailed description of (sub)activities, parts and workflow (mechanical and manual). Based on general cost elements, costs of the parts and components, cost of the operations and the workflow, the model generates global as well as detailed results (in quantities and costs).
In this case a study ("The successful management of a logistics company to cope with extensive growth") is conducted on a third party logistics (3PL) company in the Food Industry. This company has been successful in its overall business performance and its utilization of warehouses and fleet. As the company is expanding its operations across Europe, it wants to define the strategic resources needed to develop its logistics operations as a full-pledged international 3PL company. The study covers the configuration of financial, physical and human resources.
