About the Client
The client is a leading German multinational toy, games, and sporting goods manufacturer and retailer who is in business for over two decades. While the client’s central manufacturing unit is in Germany, it’s sales and marketing operations were spread across the globe, making it challenging to track and monitor the logistics flow.
The Business Challenge
With the retail sector booming globally, automation has become an important aspect of efficient warehouse and logistics management. The fast-growing retail scenario, growing requirement for newer technologies, and the lack of advanced logistics management capabilities prevented valuable synergy effects. Consequently, the client’s logistics operations and logistics management spend increased significantly. This proved to be a major challenge that hindered the client’s logistics and warehouse operations and they were looking at leveraging advanced analytics to decrease costs and improve their approach to logistics management.
The client wanted to leverage Quantzig’s cutting-edge logistics analytics solutions and proven methodologies to design and implement the most cost-efficient logistics management system while meeting all the SLA’s. The company’s goal was to implement an advanced logistics management framework that would help them develop a more variable business model while also providing increased visibility across cargo flows and warehouse operations.
The devised framework helped address most of the client’s challenges which spanned three core areas including:
- A decentralized logistics management system
- Inconsistent processes and operational standards
- High logistics operating spend (LOS) and logistics management spend (LMS)
