We focus on Building, Reinventing & Improving your Supply Chain.

 

It is easy to advise, but it requires Skill and Capability to Deliver Results.

E-Commerce (B2C) Strategy, Fulfillment & Last Mile

We help clients align their E-Commerce ambitions with capabilities needed to deliver to their customers. Our ability is creating customized solutions based on where our client is in the business maturity curve, and continuously innovating to moonshot growth and achieve cost goals.

Our principal consultant recently built and launched a made-to-order logistics & operations solution for Amazon, which included pickup from factories overseas, customs clearance at origin and destination, order fulfillment location selection, airfreight route optimization, and last mile delivery to customers in 100+ countries. Global Airfreight routes and flights were analyzed to select the best route for speed. Special customs processes were developed in collaboration with the suppliers, logistics providers and customs clearing teams in-country to expedite clearance timelines for export and import. This solution had to factor in multiple origin countries and order fulfillment locations at launch and new additions post launch, in order to offer more selections to customers and improve order to deliver transit time. This project required identification and selection of new logistics providers, pricing/terms negotiations, and be ready to test within 4-6 months of project start date. The project launched on-time globally with unprecedented transit times, logistics costs, and limited tech work to integrate the new providers. Technology and capability road maps for Phase two (2) and three (3) was developed to offer greater speed at lower costs.
