The distribution and logistics landscape is changing quickly, and owners need to be nimble and well-branded to adapt. FortéONE works with value-add B2B distributors and logistics firms to focus on the key issues driving their revenues and profitability. We help owners:

  • Develop and implement programs to drive business growth in existing and new markets

  • Assess customer and product profitability and perform rationalization to increase overall margins

  • Refine pricing strategies to realize the highest possible profitability

  • Define and implement sales metrics, marketing strategies, and tools to give owners an understanding of sales and marketing effectiveness

 

Owners also know that all areas of the company need to work and grow together. FortéONE’s approach to the distribution and logistics industry encompasses that big picture view of the elements you need to win:  Strategy, Revenue Growth, Operations, Finance, System & Information, Strategy, and Organizational Development. 

 

A few of the ways we have worked “in house” with manufacturing companies to help them grow sales and profits include:

  • End-to-end SIOP processes to ensure low cost/consistent quality production

  • Ensure the organization is structured and staffed appropriately

  • Implement lean processes throughout the operation

  • Plant consolidations and new facility design and construction

  • Implement Six Sigma principles, improve throughput using the theory of constraints, conduct and lead Kaizen events, and employ other efficiency improvement and waste reduction initiatives

  • Perform process and production line analysis, and optimize all plant processes

  • Assess product profitability and perform stock-keeping unit (SKU) rationalization at a plant and firm-wide level

  • Supplement production, assembly and distribution leadership

  • Assess plant personnel at all levels, including management, production staff, maintenance, supply chain, outsourced functions and liaisons, and upgrade or restructure as required

  • Align overall strategy with the best market opportunities

  • Assist with crisis management planning and execution, including product recalls
