Presentation

Our client, a world leader in the cosmetics industry, wants to optimize its logistics costs. KEPLER offers to implement a logistics strategy that will reduce its additional costs linked to the saturation of its logistics organization in France. 

Context

  • Two distribution centers (North and South), acting as an interface between factories, subcontractors, and distribution centers 

  • Saturated warehouses, generating additional logistical costs linked to overflow 

  • An expected 10% increase in volumes passing through the platforms 

  • Constraints that are evolving on the market (CO2 emissions, responsiveness, etc.) requiring a review of the rules for flow arbitration 

Objective(s)

Category: Optimize Full Costs 

  • Defining and sizing the logistics organization on a 5-10 years span

Using the tools for modeling and visualizing flows allow understanding cross-cutting levers for improvement without being biased by local optimum constraints. Beyond the savings generated, this approach contributes to the decompartmentalization of professions and the objectification of decisionmaking.
