APPROACH TO STRATEGIC NETWORK DESIGN
Customers often want to know how to optimize the setup of their supply chain network in support of business strategy. DHL Consulting leverages this service to conduct an ‘as-is’ assessment of your current network at a global / regional / country level, gaining deep understanding of your current network as a baseline for testing future scenarios and optimizing network design. We offer strategic recommendations that balance your supply chain requirements with business requirements – for example, to lower carbon emissions, reduce total cost, improve customer service, or a combination of these and other objectives. Our team undertakes thorough analyses and models multiple scenarios using state-of-the-art software to recommend an optimal, fit-for-purpose network design. We also provide an implementation plan, which includes input from DHL’s global network of operational experts.
