Retailers feeling the pinch from flattening sales, rising consumer expectations, or other challenges have a solution at their disposal: supply chain management. In fact, history shows that those who invest in supply chain and technology in a downturn can mitigate pressures, fuel growth, and ultimately emerge stronger.
With deep expertise in all facets of retail and performance improvement, our retail supply chain consultants help you identify opportunities for increased end-to-end value creation and optimization, including investing in artificial intelligence, building a digital twin for decision making, and even opening new facilities.
In addition to providing a full supply chain overhaul, we offer targeted standalone services to address typical challenges.
- Store and e-commerce fulfillment. Optimize your future network footprint; use fully loaded costs and carbon emissions for product flow paths; segment SKUs based on historical performance to optimize inventory, improve speed, and increase sales.
- Asset productivity. Leverage four-wall operations to increase productivity and reduce inventory, complexity, and cost to serve; identify and deploy automation solutions as needed.
- Transportation. Improve transportation and reverse logistics, and implement the necessary enablers for sustained change; define and optimize last-mile strategy to balance cost and service.
- End-to-end value creation. Lead cross-value-chain efforts—across vendors, merchandising, and store operations—to reduce costs and improve sales.
As a strategic tool, your supply chain can help you redefine consumer service, build resilience and meet—if not exceed—efficiency and sustainability expectations. So, whether you want to reduce costs, boost efficiency, or improve service levels, we can remove the guesswork to deliver sustainable change and real value.
