Optimizes complete Distribution Network to find the right number, location, role and capacities of the warehouses to minimize supply chain costs and maximize Service Levels. Identify distribution structure and echelons in Supply Chain.Evaluate multiple business scenarios and compare. Assess risks associated with each scenario.
Optimal network design with right number of echelons (central and regional warehouses) in the distribution network.
Suggests best number and location of warehouses based on the best trade-off between freight costs & fixed costs of warehouses.
Finds out the best linkage from different possible routes from factory to central warehouse to regional warehouse to customer.
Accounts for linear costs like handling costs, freight costs between factory warehouses, customers etc. and non-linear costs like warehouse rent, manpower costs.

Simulation to test sensitivity of key supply chain drivers like Tariffs, Taxes, Market Demand, Introduction of new categories, lead time, transportation modes, New Routes, Fixed Costs etc.
Reduction in inventory by making a full truck direct shipments.
