Holistic supply chain optimization
For the past 25+ years, product sourcing has relied heavily on overseas resources for manufacturing and a kneejerk reaction to current disruption is to bring sourcing closer to home. But that may not be the best long-term choice for your business. For true supply chain optimization, you must look at the whole picture – suppliers, inbound and outbound transportation, along with your inventory placement, warehousing and distribution footprint, operations, and technology.
- Reduce costs, improve productivity and manage supplier compliance with our collaborative visibility network tool.
Inbound and outbound transportation
- Eliminate cost variability and capacity concerns across your multi-modal network with managed transportation services. These services provide oversight and accountability to drive improvements in service, quality, efficiency, communication, and visibility. We leverage our expansive carrier base to deliver a competitive managed program.
- Additional options for shippers like establishing sail schedules, pool distribution, dedicated routes, mode conversion, and more should be explored when looking at inbound and outbound transportation.
Warehousing and distribution
- Working with a provider who also has a full suite of transportation and supply chain services will ensure your transportation network is optimized for each step in the supply chain.
- Navigate current market conditions with ease by leveraging a nationwide provider with contract and dedicated warehousing that will support both your long-term and flex needs.
- Selecting the right software, facilitating training, integration, and future enhancements, and ensuring you maximize the value of your technology investment can be challenging without a roadmap that can clearly tie these investments to their return.
- Schneider’s supply chain, engineering, and consulting experts perform detailed supply chain assessments that help you pinpoint what will be most beneficial for your business.
- Supply chain engineers with in-depth knowledge of transportation help you weigh trade-offs and select the optimal decision when it comes to:
- The best number of warehouse and distribution centers, and their locations.
- Evaluating your strategy for weighing inventory placement, fulfillment speed, and offshoring vs. reshoring.
- Optimizing and driving efficiency across your supply chain following acquisitions, mergers, or spin-offs.
