Mergers and acquisitions generally give rise to the coming together of diverse logistics operations and supply chain requirements. This often presents the new entity with both the challenges of duplication and the opportunity to achieve operational synergies and efficiencies.
Determining how to reconfigure these diverse operations into a coherent solution that will enhance the value of the merged businesses requires well-developed skills of analysis, modelling, decision making, prioritization and change management to ensure that the transition takes place in an orderly and timely manner; and The Logistics Consultants can work with you to deliver successful results.
The Logistics Consultants know that it can be difficult for companies’ to take the first steps towards collaborative logistics projects. So, we can assist with the process of identifying and quantifying potential synergies that might be achieved through collaborative logistics projects. Once there is a willingness to share information, fuel and energy savings can be achieved by increasing load factors through effective route planning; and multiple deliveries to common customer sites can be identified and integrated.
We use Distribution Planning Software to model each existing individual logistics operation; and to then review possible optimisation scenarios. For example, two or more companies servicing similar customers or similar territories might improve efficiencies and reduce costs by sharing transport or by contracting with the same logistics provider. There are even examples of competitors finding sufficient synergies to make such solutions worthwhile.
Projects of this nature require a trusted third party to ensure that data is secure and that only the required results are shared among the parties, and The Logistics Consultants are experienced in delivering projects of this nature.
