PwC rated as a Vanguard Leader by ALM Intelligence for Digital Logistics Consulting.
According to ALM Intelligence’s report, ‘Digital Logistics Consulting’, logistics is an intrinsically complex business function. The most basic logistics networks involve a myriad of different individual factors interacting at high speed in highly complex ways, while more sophisticated examples have reached a level of complexity that, if not for the aid of computers, would place them well beyond the limits of human comprehension. Nonetheless, the general concept of logistics is fairly simple and straightforward – after all, the main objective of logistics (i.e., moving something from Point A to Point B, with the occasional stop in between) has changed little since the invention of the wheel.
The report goes on to say that:
Commenting on the capabilities of PwC, the report highlights that “PwC has built its Supply Chain Opportunity and Optimisation Platform as a way of bringing the benefits of data analytics to the supply chain and logistics. This platform includes tools developed by PwC (such as its Inventory Replenishment Optimiser) that incorporate supply chain analytics capabilities and can be delivered in a mobile app format.”
ALM Intelligence also state that “in the logistics network visibility area, PwC benefits from its close partnership with Jabil, a logistics firm that has developed the innovative InControl supply chain orchestration platform, a tool that PwC’s consultants deploy to help clients monitor and manage their logistics networks. The tool can also help ensure compliance with conflict minerals legislation.”
Commenting on achieving the Vanguard rating, Brett Cayot, Global Logistics leader, said: “We are pleased to be named a leader in this ALM Vanguard. Our aim is to help our clients achieve excellence with all of their logistics and help them to make the most of the opportunities available with the incorporation of digital technologies into logistics.”
