Molson Coors (UK & Ireland), the UK’s biggest brewer, has a portfolio of more than 100 beer brands including Carling, Coors Light, as well as craft and speciality beers like Cobra and Blue Moon.
Following a previous successful supply chain modelling project, the company once again engaged our supply chain consultants to conduct a comprehensive review of the service and costs from its third-party logistics provider. We tailored our infrastructure modelling program to model primary distribution between breweries and a National Distribution Centre, warehouse operations at Regional Distribution Centre’s, secondary distribution and direct delivery from the NDC to breweries.
The model allowed Molson Coors to establish whether alternative infrastructures would produce significant savings, identify cost saving opportunities and predict future distribution costs based on different sales scenarios.
“The modelling that Davies & Robson's supply chain consultants undertook for Molson Coors (UK & Ireland) gave us a strong platform from which to explore various future strategic distribution scenarios. We are continuing to use the output of their work to shape our future Distribution network”.
