SCALA CASE STUDY
Design of Supply Chain & Logistics Network including ITT Management
‘Top 6’ UK Retailer
Background & Brief
The client was actively seeking significant wholesale supply arrangements in the retail convenience sector in order to rapidly develop its scale of operation in the UK Convenience market. This represented a new business and supply chain model and in addition their own logistics network was at a very high level of utilisation. SCALA’s brief was to advise on the optimal supply chain model particularly given that the business wanted to act with pace and to subsequently conduct an ITT and identify the optimal 3rd party logistics solution to support the new business. SCALA were requested to complete this within 13 weeks.
Benefits & Results
Based on SCALA recommendation, the client appointed the recommended solution and supplier. The identification of the solution and the pace at which the project was completed enabled the client to secure the wholesale supply agreement and to the aggressive timescales which they desired.
