Supply Chain Consulting

For Canadian companies in manufacturing, logistics and distribution, the customer service, reliability, pricing and execution of an organization’s supply chain operations are the biggest contributing factors to the operational efficiency and competitive advantage.

  • If a company’s supply chain strategy and facility investments drain available capital, then they can’t invest in new product development, market expansion or countless other initiatives that could make them more competitive.
  • If they starve their supply chain management of investment, then productivity will fall, operating costs will rise and customer service will deteriorate.
  • Conversely, every dollar wasted on unnecessary supply chain processes (facilities, equipment and technology) is a dollar that can’t be invested to deliver elsewhere, into things like product development or building new stores.

Most executives are forced to become experts in real estate every 5 – 10 years when their lease is expiring and they have to focus on whether to renew or relocate.

ENCOR is a trusted Supply Chain consultant in Toronto, Canada with a track record of helping clients navigate these complex supply chain challenges throughout Canada and the United States, which in turn helps shape future real estate needs.

Who Needs Supply Chain Consulting Services?

Our customers fit into 4 main categories:

  1. A business that is looking to reduce labour costs.
  2. An organization that is seeking to maximize capacity.
  3. Need to improve service delivery.
  4. Recent merger / acquisition.

How Much does Supply Chain Consulting Cost?

It’s complicated.  It varies across industries (such as what is the commodity in the warehouse), and what processes are currently in place.  Maturing companies with fewer systems and workflows are typically easier for us to work with compared to organizations that operate with data in legacy systems and require more resources on our part to find solutions.
