the customer is never simple
executives with supply chain and logistics
responsibilities are moving out of "survival
mode" and beginning to make their supply chains
more flexible, responsive and efficient. They
are looking to trim the number of distribution
centers while minimizing transportation costs
and cycle time. If they have moved operations or
sourcing overseas, they are looking for
strategies to help them better manage a more
complicated set of logistics and get a handle on
fluctuations of inbound shipping costs looking for ways to respond to changes in
customer order patterns and incorporate
important new technologies.

PDSLogistics specializes in taking clients from broad-stroke strategy to practical
tactics on logistics design engagements. Our solutions enable clients to
optimally deliver finished goods to customers without losing sight of
business needs or customer requirements.
The fundamental selection of the distribution channel
and the resulting structure of the product delivery system involves
consideration of sales and marketing issues as well as logistical issues
of sourcing, production, warehousing, stocking, and delivery. This often
requires an evaluation of the feasibility of direct sales and the role
of distributors. In addition, we use computer models to examine the
broad questions of, "How many distribution centers do I need? Where do I
locate them? What inventory should they contain?" We use client data and
our knowledge of service performance to design a logistics strategy.
