Discovering Your Potential
Information exchange is vital to uncovering – and understanding – all the variables that affect the movement of your product. That’s why the first step in the LeSaint Logistics 360logic process is the Discover Process.
During this critical phase, we discuss, probe and question in order to capture a true, complete picture of your warehouse and inventory needs – as well as the transportation requirements that support efficient delivery. Every aspect of your supply will be analyzed including:
- Sourcing of product
- Sales channels
- Customer requirements
- Warehouse demands
- Inventory profile
- Value-added services
Through this analysis, we build a thorough Customer Profile that identifies the specific demands of your current as well as future supply chain program and allows us to move forward to create solutions.
Customer Profile Elements
Whether your raw materials are brought in by sea, rail or truck, LeSaint looks at the most efficient and cost-effective method of bringing them into a production facility and maximizing efficiencies in both product touch and transportation.
Sales Channel Alignment
Understanding the demands on the timing and delivery of your products allows us to strategically structure your product movement and optimize how it is managed, controlled and shipped.
We analyze your current product footprints to uncover how well your current demands are being met and address any issues with insufficient warehouse space, seasonal fluctuations, and new market needs.
We investigate all areas of your inventory to assess reporting and tracking requirements – from number of SKUs and turns per year to how inventory is received and what type of storage density is expected.
Determining headcounts, staffing and footprint requirements starts with detailed insight into core issues such as demand for kitting or repackaging, how orders are filled, and the impact of season cycles.
What are your distribution requirements? Are product shipments national or regional? What modes of transportation and service levels are required? By focusing on the best economies of scale, we can better help you meet customer demands.
We explore your technology capabilities to find the best solutions for enhancing real-time inventory management and transportation tracking, from plugging into our software solutions to improving the integration of your own technologies.
We think beyond the delivery and housing of products to determine if there are other services that can save you time and money – and uncover novel ways to create the best supply chain program.
