Not Seeing The Wood For The Trees
An external logistics specialist or consultant can provide you with an understanding of where your operation currently is, and the potential it actually has.
Logistics operations regularly develop over time without managed direction and a clear strategy, and in the worst cases they develop by constantly adopting a ‘knee-jerk reaction’ to an urgent business or customer requirement.
This can lead to a fractured operation that is disjointed and not aligned to the business goals and objectives. Communication becomes poor, planning becomes ineffective and costs can spiral out of control. Unfortunately, those leaders directly responsible for the operation become so involved in the day to day ‘firefighting’ that they can’t see the wood for the trees.
Would you benefit from some
logistics consultancy support and advice?
In a nutshell, Logistics consultants are utilised to evaluate the full or any element of a logistics operation and highlight areas of improvement whilst working alongside the management team.
Why TLC? Why are we different?
Some consultants will utilise expensive simulation software, others will baffle you with acronyms and terminology. We will sit down and discuss your issues and concerns and then determine exactly what you need from the function. We roll our sleeves up and quickly get into the grass roots of the operation to not only understand the operational processes, but also the culture within the operation. We will then present to you a fresh and unbiased view of the current situation, the gap between this and the objective, and then a prioritised plan of how to get there. It really is that simple.
