Supply Chain Network Design

In the fast-paced and demanding environment today, having an optimized supply chain network is a strategic imperative. Companies face relentless shifts in customer expectations, global competition, and supply chain disruptions. An efficiently designed and meticulously optimized supply chain network is the foundation that allows businesses to meet these challenges head-on, ensuring timely deliveries, cost-effective operations, and flexibility to adapt and demands change. 


Supply chain network design is the strategic process of configuring a company’s supply chain to achieve specific objectives. It involves determining the optimal locations for facilities, such as production centers, distribution centers, and suppliers, as well as the most efficient transportation routes. The primary goals are usually to minimize costs, enhance service levels, reduce risks, and improve overall supply chain efficiency.  

By analyzing factors like demand patterns, costs, capacity, and inventory levels, companies can make informed decisions to create a well-structured and agile supply chain network that aligns with their business objectives and adapts to changing market conditions. 


The opportunity to improve supply chain efficiency through optimization is an ongoing endeavor as companies must continuously adapt to external factors affecting their operations, costs and customer satisfaction. Whether you are in the process of expanding into new regions or considering branch closures for cost-efficiency, The Poirier Group can expertly guide you through these strategic  transformative initiatives to achieve your overall objectives in a timely manner.

Leveraging our extensive expertise in supply chain network design and optimization, fortified by robust data analytics and lean six sigma methodologies, we expertly model diverse scenarios and prescribe the most efficient network configuration to meet your needs. This could entail recommended strategic site identification, facility consolidation, and streamlined transportation routes.
