The Challenge

A major overseas beer manufacturer and exporter asked Procure4 to carry out a review of its in-bound logistics and distribution strategy for the UK. Our in-house logistics expert took on the project and quickly carried out an in-depth study of existing operations and contractual arrangements.

The Approach

The review of the existing network of both suppliers of product to the UK and distributors within the local market, enabled us to develop a strategy for a more profitable network. The supply chain was re-engineered, using new suppliers and new routes for getting product from A to B.

The Results

After six weeks, we presented a streamlined network proposal, confident that it would deliver a significant cost base reduction compared with the existing operation. The company concerned agreed to implement this in full and have since benefited from the significant cost savings.
