Masterclass: Optimising Costs & Efficiency on Outsourced Transport, 14 March, Jhb

Inspiring presentations! Took home ideas and concepts to immediately implement into our transport and logistics network. Highly recommend attending - Andy Thorvaldsen, Supply Chain Executive: Mr Price Logistics


Many companies / cargo owners believe their transport operations are efficient with little room for improvement – “if costs are the same or less than last year then we’re doing ok?”. Very often the only area where attention is focused is upon negotiating ‘a better rate’ – a simplistic solution for what is a complex problem. However - the companies that are achieving exceptional savings in their logistics are successful by taking a new, integrated approach to the entire transportation process.

This workshop offers a unique opportunity to gain valuable, fresh insights into this integrated approach to transport optimisation. Delegates will benefit from the first-hand knowledge and experience of some of South Africa’s foremost consultants in this specialised field, to uncover hidden inefficiencies and unlock new areas for savings and performance enhancement. The session will also enable delegates to benchmark their own organisation against industry best practice to help develop their own Transport Improvement Plan.


The presenters will share insights from the coalface, shedding light on issues such as:

·        Understanding the real cost of Transport in your organisation

·        The importance of developing a holistic transport strategy that supports your business objectives

·        Your business through the eyes of the Transporter

·        The correct way to approach the sourcing of Transport

·        Why benchmarking is a critical part of the process

·        The value to be realised in optimised planning

·        Good governance practices to manage Transporters

·        The hidden area of lost value – controlling Transporter payments

·        Visibility, Collaboration & Technology – how to drive value in your organisation through innovation
