“Commonwealth did an excellent job of analyzing a complicated set of transportation data and combining it with experienced opinions about distribution center design and inventory policy. We were able to confidently make the decision to consolidate thanks to the help that Commonwealth provided.”

We identify your optimal number of distribution centers including location, size, and inventory allocation based on cost and service level requirements.

We will customize our study to investigate possibilities of both constrained designs, which would retain one or more current sites, as well as unconstrained design which would take a “clean slate” approach and design the optimal supply chain network without regard for existing locations.
