Our Consulting Services
The key to AVLC’s continued success has been the ability of their consultancy teams to determine and answer those significant questions for which logistics management need answers in order to simultaneously improve their customer service levels and reduce overall operating costs. AVLC teams have a “toolkit” of logistics analysis techniques and decision support systems to quickly and effectively analyse situations, determine problem areas and quantify the impact of focused changes. Consultants offer imaginative solutions to problems to generate those all important improvements which secure competitive advantage.
Most significant assignments could be classified under one or more of the following six headings:
- Determining Logistics Strategy for a five or ten year horizon by understanding customer needs and potential changes.
- Application of logistics decision support toolkits to determine both long and short term cost reduction opportunities.
- Identifying productivity improvement, particularly by the application of new technology.
- Identifying improvements in customer service levels by the introduction of new logistics structures.
- Establishment of defined contractual relationships between those third-parties involved in the supply chain process.
- Logistics software selection and implementation to improve information flow in terms of availability, accuracy and timeliness throughout the supply chain.
AVLC’s main client base consists of multi-national “blue-chip” manufacturing and retail companies. AVLC also act as specialist logistics sub-contractors to multi-national consulting companies and software implementation companies. As a result, AVLC undertake assignments in the UK, Europe, Middle East, Far East, Australasia, USA and Canada. Many assignments are on inter-continental logistics operations.
AVLC clients include rapidly growing business in areas as diverse as agriculture, food and drink, electronics, publishing, petroleum consumer products, industrial products, utilities and distribution services.
