Logistics Outsourcing & Tender Management

The successful outsourcing and procurement of logistics support can reduce your organisation’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.

Logistics Outsourcing Experience

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.

Consultancy Support Provided

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:

  • Advising how to structure the operation for outsourcing
  • Advising on the most appropriate pricing structure – closed book, open book or hybrid
  • Preparing appropriate data sets
  • Preparing a detailed specification
  • Advising on suitable third party contractors both nationally and internationally
  • Preparing invitation to tender (ITT) documents
  • Recommended KPI’s and reporting procedures
  • Managing the logistics tender process
  • Evaluating contractors submissions
  • Preparing contractual agreements
  • Assisting with contract negotiations
  • Managing the implementation

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.
