Are you looking to optimize your distribution and transportation network? The regulatory challenges, operational costs, and financial pressures may seem insurmountable. However, when it comes to turning these challenges into opportunities, our expertise stands out remarkably. In the constantly evolving business landscape, we understand the pressures weighing on your company. Imagine solutions that skillfully combine short supply chains, transport electrification, and route consolidation.
When analyzing the network, our evaluation of the positioning and the roles of each link in the supply chain incorporates a variety of essential factors, such as:
This approach also considers environmental impacts and design elements related to emerging technologies. Through approaches such as positioning analysis (green field analysis), network optimization, simulation, and delivery route analysis (transport optimization), we can define the optimal network configuration to precisely meet each company's requirements using advanced operational research methods.
By collaborating with our team, you can enhance your operational efficiency, reduce logistics costs, increase your service level, and strengthen your ability to meet the changing needs of your customers. Our solutions will bring transformative improvements that will form a resilient and cost-efficient network.
Analyzing inventory deployment in a distribution and transportation network must include an optimization of the following points:
To take the requirements for determining the optimal solution into account, we employ a sensitivity analysis using a digital twin of your network. This allows us to simulate various scenarios and quantify potential impacts on its responsiveness.
Thanks to this responsiveness assessment, we can detect, anticipate, and manage risks associated with unforeseeable events such as strikes, closures, or even the sudden loss of a site due to a fire (black swan events). We ensure that your network is resilient to potential risks while guaranteeing the security of your operations.
Our distribution and transportation network team provides a comprehensive assessment of transport strategies, with a focus on:
Using your own delivery fleet allows for a great deal of flexibility compared to outsourcing, but it needs to be managed properly to avoid turning into a financial drain.
We start with a comprehensive analysis of the route creation processes, taking various factors into account, such as:
We also focus on optimizing last-mile logistics, often called last-mile delivery.
Our goal is to minimize the miles traveled while maintaining an optimal level of service. This is made possible by optimizing the use of your private delivery fleet. By doing so, we help improve operational efficiency, reduce logistics costs, and minimize the environmental impact of your delivery operations, from the first mile to the last.
The public sector in North America has its own unique characteristics, both in the nature of the modes of transportation to be implemented and in their management and operationalization. Our approach is based on a comprehensive analysis of transport practices (choice of carrier, applied rates, delivery frequency, etc.). This includes identifying opportunities for route consolidation, streamlining, and densification. Our approach to transportation therefore encompasses:
The primary objective of GCL during a warehouse relocation is to plan and execute the transfer efficiently while minimizing disruptions and maintaining optimal operational continuity. To achieve this, the following points need to be considered:

Optimizing your distribution network is a considerable competitive advantage.
Good management of your network will allow you to save money and provide better service.
This is the biggest challenge these days! To improve the efficiency of your deliveries, a complete analysis of your shipments and their timelines must be carried out. We will then be able to assess where the points of tension are to finally be able to propose solutions tailored to your reality and your objectives.
Here are some tips: optimize the fill rate of the delivery trucks, optimize your transport equipment, review your choice of carrier, test collaborative delivery, etc.
This decision requires a complete analysis of your distribution network and your shipments. We will analyze with you if you are strategically positioned in relation to your objectives, if the positioning needs to be reviewed, and/or if one or more new distribution centers would be necessary. Optimizing your shipments usually allows you to achieve your goals without having to start building a new site.
