Distribution network design and optimisation
Companies today are challenged to find more innovative ways to reduce operational costs and working capital investments, while also driving customer service, revenue and growth.
DGS Network Design & Optimisation consulting solution leverage supply chain management best practices, enabling companies to transform their supply chain structure and policies for optimal performance. We design lean and highly optimised distribution network from the scratch. We also audit and optimise existing distribution networks.
Distribution centre and warehouse design
With many markets becoming volatile and difficult to predict, the focus of supply chain management is shifting from the idea of cost as an order winner to responsiveness as the market winner. Cost, however, remains a market qualifier in such situations and therefore agile supply chains are faced with the twin pressures of providing greater responsiveness whilst keeping costs low. Properly located distribution centre is one of the ways of achieving this.
Supply chain audit
One means of matching Supply Chain strategy to business strategy is to undertake some associated quantitative and qualitative analysis.
We have developed a series of key assessment methodologies and criteria to accomplish this vital exercise for any type and scale of organisation.
Supply chain strategy
The goal of logistics and supply chain management is to link the marketplace, the distribution network, the manufacturing process and the procurement activities in such a way that customers are serviced at higher levels and yet at a lower total cost.
Logistics is essentially planning orientation and framework that seeks to create a single plan for the flow of product and information through the business. Supply Chain management builds upon this framework and seeks to achieve linkage and co-ordination between the processes of other entities in the pipeline, i.e. suppliers and customers, and the organisation itself. Developing a robust supply chain strategy that enfolds all of these and will deliver the supply chain excellence is what our consultants can assist you to accomplish.
To maximise supply chain performance, companies are faced with the challenge of maintaining a profitable balance among speed, service levels, and the risk and cost of inventory deployment. DGS’s Inventory Optimisation solutions provides companies with end-to-end capabilities for managing inventory strategy, planning and execution, enabling them to achieve superior service levels, gain market share at reduced costs.
The mounting pressure to conduct business in a sustainable fashion comes from various stakeholders – customers, shareholders, boards, employees, governments, and NGOs – and most corporations respond in a reactive and piecemeal way.
They demand that suppliers change their materials to environmentally friendly ones. They ask suppliers to move manufacturing operations closer to end market to reduce transportation-related carbon footprints. And they tweak their own operations by replacing ordinary light bulbs with compact fluorescent lamps, recycling more of their materials, refurbishing and reusing products, using more energy – efficient equipment, and so on.
