Distribution Footprint Strategy
During the Inspiration Session on 27 June 2017, Alain Beerens shared details of his experiences within a decision-making and realization procedure for a distribution footprint implementation project. He started by presenting an overview of the project activities, pitfalls and planning during such a procedure.
Alain then took a closer look at the primary decision-making factors and how they can be developed into a financially sound and qualitative business case as the basis for a well-considered strategic decision. Last but not least, he touched on how the structure of the logistics organization, and in particular inventory management, should support the new footprint.
