Major Supermarket Chain Shops for Optimized Distribution, Finds Overall Savings

Challenge: A major supermarket chain used Logistix Solutions' Logix Distribution Network Design tool to identify significant savings from consolidation of inbound distribution to its network of stores in the United States.

Solution: Logix and its integrated Fleet Optimizer pinpointed the optimum location for the consolidation center, targeted which products to cross dock and which to ship direct and prescribed loads based on shipment weight, product compatibility restrictions and optimum weekly shipping strategies. One of Logix' unique capabilities is its ability to optimize transportation down to the route and truckload level, UPS zone or LTL rate while simultaneously solving the distribution network design problem.

Results: Transportation costs and product flow were accurately represented and loads realistically consolidated to ensure that results could be implemented in the field and targeted savings actually achieved for this client.
