Distribution

Effective hub and sort centre operations need to be supported by a robust distribution operation. The route a driver follows, and the organisation and distribution techniques employed can have a significant impact on costs and service.

 

Our team has experience of working in distribution operations to improve planning and processes, and working alongside drivers to improve work methods and routines.

In both management and consulting roles, we have improved the performance of distribution operations and helped to achieve significant cost savings.

 

As a result of our work, operators have been able to achieve KPIs such as an increased number of stops per driver day, fewer delivery failures, reduced cost per package delivered, and increased driver utilisation.
