The transport and logistics sector faces new challenges today as globalization shrinks borders, competition arises in newly liberalized markets, and both regulation and client demands evolve as markets grow.
Today’s firms must adapt their economic model to this new environment. The sector has seen a move towards consolidation as companies merge to reach critical mass.
Alongside this change, optimization of both the supply chain and of logistics management has become of critical importance when ensuring a firm’s profitability. Whatever your goal, Zalis brings together the expertise of its multidisciplinary team to help you anticipate market trends and optimize your operations to thus boost your firm’s performance.
Examples of an accomplished mission
Leading public health industry player guided through its transport and logistics challenges
The company, which runs a network of radiopharmaceutical preparation production sites, asked Zalis to study its delivery logistics. Our analysis isolated the relevant variables to then suggest an action plan to optimize logistic costs for the company, covering three principle axes :
- Flow optimization for finished product distribution;
- Flow optimization for the return of empty boxes and shafts;
- Potential avenues of negotiation with regular suppliers.
Zalis was later mandated to accompany this client in:
- Reducing its supplier costs for deliveries to the customers;
- Optimising the delivery schedules;
- Implementing the central management of logistics planning.
British-French alliance in the supermarket sector guiding the alliance
A British provider of RFID solutions for logistics who is also a leading manufacturing and marketing company for identification, traceability, security, and merchandising solutions in the hypermarket sector, sought guidance from Zalis in its partnership process with a major French group in the hypermarket sector. We successfully guided this partnership to the benefit of both groups.
