COST2SERV enables organisations with complex national and international distribution networks to reduce their total cost-to-serve, maximise margin and increase service levels. It is used to formulate network infrastructure and supply strategies by a variety of industries including oil and gas companies, high street retailers, building supplies and FMCG. All companies dealing with numerous product sourcing and distribution options, needing to identify the most cost-effective method of fulfilling demand.In determining infrastructure strategy, COST2SERV Network Strategy enables companies to review the number, location and capacities of their depots, in order to compare these with current and forecast demand in terms of volumes and geography. In addition, the system can identify the network constraints that have the most potential to reduce the total operating cost, so providing a powerful means of prioritising development objectives and supporting capital investment cases. Companies use COST2SERV Network Strategy to identify the least cost source and supply route for each demand point, to determine primary modes of distribution, allocate demand points to depots, calculate resource requirements and to quantify the cost-to-serve makeup for each customer.
