A Logistics Opportunity Assessment (LOA) is a two-stage process to evaluate and improve your logistics functions.
We develop a deep understanding of your logistics requirements to find better ways to improve service and find cost savings.
STAGE 1: Strategic Cost Analysis
We will benchmark freight rates and categorize the various elements of your total freight cost. PLS will give you a detailed assessment of freight spend by mode, carrier, geographic and seasonal orientation.
STAGE 2: On-Site Evaluation
Our team’s on-site evaluation of your logistics operations will give us further insight, and knowing your entire process will give us a clearer picture of the obstacles your company faces. The visit will focus on detailed interviews with personnel from sales, purchasing, production planning, operations, carrier management, accounts payable and IT departments.
From the information acquired from both stages of analysis, we will develop a customized logistics proposal, including your requirements and business objectives.
