SCALA CASE STUDY
Logistics Network Change Management
Major Ambient Branded Alcoholics Manufacturer
Background & Brief
Following the purchase of a significant UK based Brewing business the client wished to consolidate and rationalise the Off Trade and Export logistics into its existing logistics network in order to drive logistics optimisation and simplification but also in readiness for going to market as one business across its portfolio of products. The client had a mix of in house & out sourced logistics operations.
Benefits & Results
The client was able to reduce the number of stock holding and despatching DCs from six to five enabling simplification of inventory management and an annual cost efficiency of £400k pa. The project was a key stepping stone for a second business transformation project that enabled the client to move to one business and go to market as one supplier to its customer base in both Off Trade and On Trade sectors
