£10bn Multinational distributor and retailer of building products- UK and Ireland supply chain strategy

The company was suffering competitive disadvantage due to high costs in its supply chain and erratic service levels. Led a joint (consultant and client) team to develop a “Greenfield” strategy covering warehousing, transport, planning, store operations and inventory management. The new strategy involves a rationalisation of warehouse from some 30 in the UK to 4, a reduction in stock of 25 % and an overall reduction in logistics operating costs of 15%. Implementation of the new structure was completed over a three year time span.
