A major electrical equipment brand

Managing a Complex Supply Chain over Multiple Production and Assembly Sites

Project overview

As a significant global manufacturer of electrical equipment, our customer must manage a complex supply chain that combines multiple productions and assembly sites.

Our partner needed an intelligent and flexible solution to simplify and optimize the exchanges between the various players along the chain. Together, we developed a logistics strategy adapted to meet their needs, while reducing transit times by implementing an LCL operating service from China.

Our customer's business challenges

We conducted an in-depth analysis of our partner’s requirements and identified a variety of actions. We concluded that greater flexibility was needed to handle the collection and delivery of small parcels in China and Europe. Our team focused on:

  • searching for a mode of transport that enables cost effective and regular supply chain flows
  • the introduction of a simplified tariff
  • the development of a program with transit time planning for door-to-door shipments 


Our key actions to meet our customers' expectations :

In order to meet customer requirements we set up a container freight station (CFS service) in China and France, as well as an LCL (Less than Container Load) operating process in order to minimise costs and reduce transit time.
