The successful outsourcing and procurement of logistics support can reduce your company’s costs and provide you with real competitive edge. However appointing suppliers that provide the right services, under the right commercial arrangement, is a difficult task. Outlining the necessary safeguards that manage the relationship in the tender process is crucial to a winning partnership.
Our logistics consultants have extensive experience in outsourcing both simple and complex logistics requirements to third parties across an extensive range of industries and types of operations. Each year we manage the outsourcing of logistics contracts, within both the private and public sectors, to a value in excess of some £100m. In addition to outsourcing within the private sector we have also undertaken outsourcing within the public sector and therefore recognise the sector’s particular requirements.
Logistics outsourcing consulting always commences by obtaining a clear understanding of the operational and service requirements and the organisations commercial objectives. Areas we can provide support:
Particular consideration is given to ensuring that performance monitoring is a key component within the reporting process, the pricing system encourages high standards of productivity, and includes an appropriate level of flexibility in the light of changing demands.
We have provided clients with logistics outsourcing and tender management solutions for over 30 years. Our outsourcing knowledge gained from practical and consultancy experience allows us to fully understand requirements desired in a third party logistics service provider. This wealth of experience enables us to support you at each stage of the outsourcing process.
