Transports & logistics challenges

Since mid-2007, the transportation sector as a whole has been under extreme pressure globally. As a result of increased globalisation, new intense demands have been placed on the transportation and supply chain sector.

Consumers’ increasing expectations and demands for services at the lowest prices have forced companies to reshape their business model in order to deliver excellence while striving to reach breakeven.

How Deloitte can help?

Applying supply chain transformation initiatives is a proven way of reducing operational costs and increasing profits. A competitive advantage can be gained through continuous supply chain improvements.

Following efficient implementation, these have resulted in streamlined processes, reduced stock levels, shorter lead times, better asset utilisation, improved productivity and better service levels.

Deloitte’s business model optimisation approach makes strategic tax planning an integral part of supply chain transformation initiatives, enabling companies to lower their structural tax rate. This more sustainable planning approach of combining supply chain and tax optimisations can substantially contribute to achieving benefits and profits.

Deloitte’s team will assist you in overcoming the significant change impacts through good planning, experienced project management and effective change management to make sure that the applied mode will generate the most beneficial situation for your company.
