Are you facing the challenge of defining the optimal number and location of logistics locations in your new network to be developed? Or would you like to know the impact of an additional location, relocation or consolidation on the costs, delivery times and service levels of your procurement or distribution network? How can optimal transport costs and an optimal service level be achieved through location optimization?
PSIglobal provides answers.
The core objective of many supply chain network design projects is still network optimization by cost and service level. Increasingly, however, other dimensions such as sustainability and resilience of supply chains are also becoming increasingly important. To cope with this development and to design a sustainable supply chain, a regular review of the location structure of your network is recommended.
PSIglobal determines the optimal number and location of logistics locations and the corresponding assignment of customers and suppliers based on a historical or forecast shipment structure. The calculations are based on real road kilometers and transport tariffs. In addition, other parameters such as warehouse capacity, item allocations and handling costs can be considered in PSIglobal. A comparison of the scenarios provides you with a holistic perspective on possible optimization options, increasing your certainty of results.
PSIglobal supports you in determining the optimal number and location of logistics locations or production facilities within your supply chain. The results are presented to you visually as a map display and in the form of KPIs. You receive a transparent basis for your business decisions.
There is a variety of use cases for location optimization, such as e.g.:
An iterative approach in scenarios has proven successful in finding solutions. Starting from pure greenfield and brownfield scenarios, you obtain step-by-step insights into the network structure and into sensible measures for its optimization. The network structure to be implemented is designed in real scenarios derived from this – usually a mixture of existing locations and optimal locations to be newly established.
In summary, PSIglobal location optimization is an important tool for the fundamental review of the supply chain structure.
