Blue Core Logistics offers confidence in an uncertain world by providing planning and forecasting services to its clients, enabling them to deliver optimally – just in time or just in sequence.
In order to ensure an adequate supply without excessive oversupply, the supply, storage and accessibility of items need to be meticulously managed. Our clients can outsource their entire internal control function to us, or a part thereof, together with its management. They can also draw on our consulting expertise – whatever our involvement our clients can be confident that it will result in reduced expenses and an optimal supply model.
Supply chain optimisation
In business, a focus on optimisation separates the wheat from the chaff. Clients, consumers and an uncertain economic outlook are forcing manufacturers and supply chain owners to squeeze every last drop of efficiency from their operations. Optimisation means reduced costs and an enhanced reputation. Blue Core Logistics is able to apply industry-tested processes and tools to ensure the optimal operation of your manufacturing and distribution supply chain, whatever its complexity. This often involves the application of mathematical modelling techniques, on-demand software, cloud computing solutions and mobile technologies. Blue Core will ensure that your supply chain stays lean, cost-efficient, and instantaneously responsive to even minor fluctuations in demand.
Warehouse management systems
A warehouse management system is a key part of the supply chain. Blue Core is able to manage, control, and streamline the movement and storage of materials within a warehouse and process the associated transactions, including shipping, receiving, put-away and picking.
Cross-docking – moving materials between transport solutions with little or no storage in between – streamlines the supply chain, as long as it is managed strictly. Blue Core is able to guarantee our clients this complete control, resulting in reduced labour costs, reduced warehousing costs, better delivery times, and less risk of inventory handling.
