CASE STUDIES

Optimisation of Outbound Shipments

SUMMARY

Tendering allocations and allocation of shipment batches based on managers were found to be below the optimal level. Our tool helped in optimising the shipments based on cost considerations while maintaining quality customer service.

METHODOLOGY

• Identification the size of the opportunity

• Minimising the cost on DDL level rather than finding just the cheapest alternative

• Consolidation of lanes for the aggregation of carrier capacities

• Optimised allocation of shipments

• Allocation of sub optimal shipments to the next date

TAKE AWAYS

• Optimisation of shipment allocations

• Hierarchial structure for the integration of new technology to the existing IT systems

END RESULTS

Savings on costs of outbound shipments and efficient allocation of shipments
