Today’s retailers are facing waves of disruption. The integrated, omni-channel shopping experience is becoming a competitive necessity. The impact of e-commerce and m-commerce keeps growing. The store is taking on the role of a fulfillment center. The move to same-day deliveries presents a new set of labor and logistics challenges.
To succeed in this new retail reality, you need a highly productive workforce in highly efficient environment. Let TZA help you optimize all aspects of your supply chain workforce to support an exceptional customer experience while reducing inefficiencies and lowering costs.
Shorter lead times…more competition…industry consolidation…increased regulation. It’s not easy being an industrial supply manufacturer or distributor these days. Even an improving economy poses challenges for companies that have trimmed staff and facilities during the downturn.
To counter these internal and external forces, manufacturers and distributors must develop strategies to get products to market faster at lower cost with the best possible customer service. Focusing on labor performance is critical to boosting overall productivity. You can leverage TZA’s know-how from decades of successful projects in the industrial supply market to enhance performance across your supply chain.
The consumer products industry is undergoing a series of rapid changes due to shifting demographics, the rise of the digital consumer, and eroding brand loyalty creating pricing pressures and increasingly volatile material costs. In the supply chain, rapidly changing product portfolios and increasing number of SKUs create challenges to increasing throughput and lowering costs.
TZA understands these challenges and has helped many of today’s top CPG companies excel through lowered labor and operational costs through improved monitoring, measurement and motivation of labor productivity, utilization, quality and safety in distribution, kitting and value-added operations.
The concept of lean-based, continuous improvement traditionally favored in other industries to reduce supply chain costs and improve efficiency is gaining traction across pharmaceutical and healthcare supply to improve margins. But safety and compliance concerns make visibility and control of your supply chain an absolute necessity.
TZA has worked with some of the world’s largest life sciences companies to improve labor productivity and utilization to help them achieve least cost operations while maintaining excellent customer service levels.
3PL and Transportation
3PLs and transportation providers operate in a marketplace that’s growing from more outsource distribution, but also getting more competitive…with every contract having tighter margins and shorter terms. With 60% to more of operation cost being labor expense, there is a major opportunity to implement labor management programs to boost productivity and reduce costs. ProTrack Labor Management Software is being used by 3PLs across their distribution, delivery, assembly, kitting and value-add operations to optimize people, processes, technology, and facilities.
