We find opportunities in supply chain challenges.

Strengthen your supply chain to excel against the challenges of today and tomorrow.

Our team of multi-disciplinary supply chain consultants optimize your existing operations and prepare you for future disruption. Whether you’re running out of space, operating inefficiently, or struggling with costs, we can help you reconfigure or automate your location to drive efficiencies or identify the need to build a new location.

Our work is science-driven and business-centric. LIDD’s analysts, engineers, designers, and industry experts partner with you to solve targeted challenges and achieve broad transformation.

Operations Audits & Roadmaps

As your business grows, existing processes come under strain. Sometimes you don’t know where to start. We turn business plans into comprehensive supply chain roadmaps: transforming physical infrastructure, organizational processes, and technology. We can spell it out in black & white – is a new building justified? What software system should you implement first? Is automation appropriate for your operation? We speak your language.

Distribution Network Design

Where should your DCs be located? Who should operate them? Our experts optimize your network infrastructure for cost, service-level, and resiliency. Traditional network design is focused on transportation, even though about 50% of overall costs take place within the warehouse. LIDD applies proprietary tools to consider the full picture, delivering capital-justified network recommendations that tell the whole picture.

Outsourcing vs. Self-Distribution

Should I use a 3PL or build a new facility? It’s complicated. Our consultants present the data-driven insights and projections you need to make the best decisions for your business.

3PL Selection & Integration

Leverage experienced professionals to select the best 3PL for you. From a foundation of detailed data analysis, we manage a structured process from RFP development, to negotiation, to implementation.

Business Process Design

Develop integrated business management processes like S&OP with the guidance of an expert. Gain insight into key supply chain drivers and exercise control throughout the supply chain.
