Our research derived from our customers and independent statistical studies have indicated that improvements to logistics networks
have typically resulted in 5% to 15% savings in logistics costs.
ITS Logistics Network Modeling
At ITS Logistics, we design our logistics system by carefully understanding our customerís variables such as:
The number of warehouses, their location, ownership (public or private), and their size.
The allocation of customer demand to supply points (warehouses or plants); allocation to multiple or single supply points.
The amount of inventory to be maintained at various locations
The type of transportation services to use
The level of customer service to be provided
In order to stay competitive in todayís global business environment, a firm should have a Logistics Network Model that will assess:
The integration of vehicle routing and scheduling
The uncertainty in demand (requires demand to be forecasted)
The identification and development of the appropriate type of cost functions
The dynamic nature of the demand and cost functions over a period of time
Dependency relationships between inventory and transportation decisions
The relationships between customer service levels and key logistics decisions
The size of the problem
ITS Logistics can implement these factors in its integrated logistics network model and thereby provide
answers to complex logistics scenarios.
