e-commerce is more successful than ever. As of today, there is almost nothing you cannot buy online and more and more offline shops are venturing online. The trend towards online shopping in recent years, not least due to the global coronavirus pandemic, has led to a marked increase in the importance of logistics and shipping service providers.
In a world where a trip to the supermarket is no longer necessary, a purchase is just a few clicks away and same-day delivery has become the standard, it is the pace of e-commerce logistics in particular that is increasing. Agility and flexibility are the keys to meeting more challenging customer expectations.
But the sector often hits its limits, particularly at peak times such as Black Friday and Christmas. Parcel volumes shoot up at lightning speed, while customer expectations are also greater – a difficult combination! Lots of companies have to completely rethink their ways of working and change them very quickly.
With our e-commerce consulting services to support you, no challenge is too big. We make your logistics ready for the online retail of tomorrow and make sure you have an efficient supply chain with the right solutions.
As a true expert in strategic logistics and warehouse planning, we work with you from defining your logistics goals to designing the warehouse.
In the e-commerce sector, there are various business approaches that align with specific customer benefits and resource availability. Our logistics experts support you to identify, assess and define potential logistics strategies and to develop a custom strategy with the very latest approaches for your company.
We always take a holistic view of your logistics. To achieve Warehouse optimisation, we use the latest methods and tools and analyse which strategy is best for your requirements. Work with us to complete our warehouse check-up, where we put the status quo of your current processes to the test, derive optimisation strategies and support you from implementation to commissioning.
An excellent logistics strategy first of all needs a planning phase that takes all the criteria into account. EPG CONSULTING provide support through the strategic, tactical and operational phases of Logistics planning. Together we define the long-term conditions and design the processes to achieve your defined goals. If necessary, we also handle coordination and negotiations with suppliers. And we are always manufacturer-independent and neutral. We make sure your company's logistics stay competitive – and you can keep an eye on your costs.
Starting out with e-commerce, many companies have to decide whether to handle logistics service internally or externally. Outsourcing logistics processes is not uncommon in the sector. In fact, it is becoming an integral part of a lot of company strategies to ensure performance and competitiveness. However, success requires a solid set calculations and analyses so that you can select ideal service providers.
Network design can be a critical factor in the success of day-to-day e-commerce operations. Networks are very different, particularly in terms of quality, where network speed and costs, flexibility, scalability, complexity and transparency are key. Location choices and capacity planning are needed to achieve maximum added value. We help you evaluate, operate and design your network.
Finding the right property for your internal logistics is often time-consuming and can involve a high level of risk from a lack of knowledge. Using intelligent algorithms and taking into account existing supplier and customer structures and transport infrastructure, we support you to find a location that meets your needs. We work with you through the entire process, from strategic requirements planning and location analysis to signing the contract.
