Transport Optimisation

Transport optimisation is integral to linking manufacturers, suppliers, and consumers efficiently. It is a complex issue that requires both an understanding of detailed business requirements such as service levels and customer delivery point restrictions, and the use of software to find optimal solutions.

How can we help?

SCCG focuses on optimising goods movement to cut costs, boost efficiency, and heighten customer satisfaction. Their approach includes analysing transportation operations, identifying improvement areas, and developing client-specific strategies.  This process involves understanding customer service requirements, analysing operational processes, and evaluating cost-to-serve.

Recommendations, tailored to each client’s unique situation, range from implementing route scheduling software to reorganising distribution infrastructure. SCCG’s goal is to balance customer needs with transport optimisation, aiding businesses in reducing costs while maintaining high service quality. Their experienced team ensures tailored solutions for diverse scenarios like market expansion, sales volume changes, and competitive challenges.

Our Process

Requirements Definition

The first step to attaining effective transport operations is to clearly define your requirements – understanding what movements exist between what locations at what load size and frequency – e.g. primary movements from factory to warehouse, delivery to customers, returns, empty packaging movements etc.

Transport Routing and Scheduling

SCCG uses PTV Route Optimiser software to model dedicated fleet operations and explore scenarios to schedule and route vehicles efficiently.  Outputs include optimal fleet mix, optimal out-base locations, optimal customer allocation, improved vehicle utilisation, reduced mileage, costs and CO2e.

Own-fleet vs Outsourced Provision

SCCG will define which transport movements are better routed via outsourced provision versus dedicated fleet operations.  This includes use of regional contractors for the outlying areas and the use of pallet and/or parcel network solutions.
