Transportation & Logistics

Optimizing the interrelated processes of your transportation system while managing logistics risks is critical in meeting ever-evolving customer demands, maintaining production efficiency and improving processing costs. 

As the COVID 19 pandemic has exposed vulnerabilities in regional and global supply chains, including transportation routes and hubs being closed down, ensuring you can consistently deliver your products to meet your customers’ demands can be challenging. It is time to revisit how you manage your logistics to mitigate risks while staying on top of customer demands. With our deep experience and capabilities in this sector, The Poirier Group is the selected choice for managing your transportation and logistics optimization.

Our Approach

Over the years working in supply chain and transportation, we have developed, documented and instilled into our approach a set of supply chain planning principles that guide our thinking as we co-design future state processes with our clients. These principles form the basis of an education-focused design approach in which employees not only internalize the principles but also see them in action and how they can be applied in their organization. This hands-on training is how we make your improvements sustainable.

We can help optimize your transportation and logistics on a number of fronts:

  • Fleet Management and optimization
  • Process Re-Engineering
  • Scenario Planning
  • Consolidation – Increasing cube utilization per trip
  • Scheduling
  • IT System integration
  • Cost Optimization
  • Strategy planning

More than anything, we understand that new processes and capabilities can only be enabled by people. As such, over 15 years of consulting projects, we’ve developed an approach that’s focused on helping change and instill new behaviours and ways of working. We will coach your employees from your back-office leadership to the shop floor and drivers on the road, training your team on the new processes and managing the change along the way.
