Freight purchasing is a crucial factor for competitive success in the field of supply chain management. TICONTRACT Logistics Consulting services help companies to select the right service providers. The aim is to make the most cost-effective assignment decisions that will ensure the reliability of supply.
Consulting services are provided for all types of freight purchasing work, whether smaller, local sourcing projects or global tenders running to many millions of euros.
Definition of project goals and customer requirements
Recommendation of a tendering strategy / procurement policy based on project goals
Data analysis and consolidation
Supplier identification, qualification and definition of a short list (sourcing, RFI, pre-selection, scoring)
Support in drawing up tender documents (definition of required documents, review of existing documents, creation of matrices)
Analysis of financial results based on various procurement strategies (calculation of allocations resulting from different simulations and scenarios)
Our logistics consulting services in freight purchasing combine on-site support (usually for one day) with online back-up. Projects can be launched with consultants present on site. All steps, from data analysis through to supplier management, are performed centrally by experts in each field as standard. Although we offer consulting services, our contribution ends when we present our Results Analysis. It is our policy to remain strictly neutral towards carriers, so the final decision and contract negotiations are the sole responsibility of the shipper.
TICONTRACT Logistics Consulting is an offer for companies which have very complex transport structures and, consequently, freight purchasing requirements; which do not have the capacity to manage global tenders in multiple regions; which have limited capacity in general due to a small workforce; or which do not identify logistics as being part of their core business.
