Client

Large retailer

Business Challenge

A large retailer was struggling with specific distribution and shipping challenges related to outlier shipments, such as out-of-region shipments, small orders, inadequate inventory supplies at default locations and other sub-optimal shipping situations.

Solution

The client partnered with Fractal Analytics to develop an analytics model to analyze its network and shipments and identify major drivers for out of region shipments. The solution helped create actionable recommendations for opportunities for savings in freight costs and service levels.

Benefits

As a result of the engagement, the client optimized vehicle fill rates, rebalanced inventory levels at default distribution centers, and reduced overall cost of sub-optimal shipping situations.
