Logistics Network Re-Design

Global Logistics Company

  • CHALLENGE

    When the world’s largest logistics provider needed to transition its entire South African 3PL time critical logistics network to a new service provider, they turned to LanciaConsult to manage end to end the programme of change and customer engagement.

  • EXECUTION

    Defined a new logistics transition process model, new 3PL warehouse workflows, and warehouse ergonomics to enable and support the complex migration.

  • OUTCOME

    In just 8 weeks our joint client and LanciaConsult teams designed and delivered a brand new logistics network, new ergonomics and operational flows coupled with integrated hardware and software. All this was delivered with minimal disruption to time critical operations to maintain an on-time migration plan.

Moving any single warehouse without disruption is a daunting prospect. Moving an entire country network, serving nine major blue chip customers with time critical service logistics in 8 weeks requires precision planning, process, controls and communication.— David Horner, Associate
