Design with Optiflow: World’s fastest and most powerful omni-channel supply chain network optimization solution

The Only Network Design Solution fit for designing omni-channel supply chains

With rise in E-commerce, a customer can be served from multiple channels. Parcel shipping is an important component for direct to consumer channels. Because parcel networks are very complex due to their rate structure, zone based shipping and service methods, designing an efficient omni-channel network requires a network design solution that can model complex parcel networks and non-parcel modes. Optiflow is the only network optimization solution that uses mathematical optimization to design true omni-channel networks. 

Decide optimal number and size and location of Fulfillment centers to serve customer demand

With Optiflow, you can create supply chain models and test several what-if scenarios to assess cost and service implications and how they change with FC (fulfilment center) or DC (distribution center) locations. Depending on business requirements, an optimal number of FC or DC locations can be identified to serve current and future demand

Regionalize Inventory

Last mile costs are significant in E-commerce networks. Having inventory closer to customer not only reduce logistics cost but also improves delivery speed for customers thereby leading to higher sales conversions. With Optiflow, assess optimal inventory allocation in a distribution fulfilment network to serve customer demand at highest speed and least cost. 

Design optimal zone skipping strategy

In parcel supply chains, companies can leverage zone skipping strategies to increase consolidation of package volume and enable deeper injection of shipments into their parcel provider network to reduce last mile logistics cost

Decide optimal ship from store vs ship from FC strategy

If you are a retailer or manufacturer that ship direct to consumer and you have an established store network, then you can leverage your store network to ship DTC volume. However, there is limitation on how much inventory can your stores hold both in terms of variety (SKUs) and quantity. Hence, designing optimal fulfillment strategy involves carefully segmenting SKUs and deciding optimal stocking locations for them that minimizes total logistics cost and improves delivery speed
