Source: www.gulfoilandgas.com 10/12/2016, Location: Europe

The logistics and procurement consultants of the Metroplan Holding GmbH, headquartered in Hamburg, contracted PSI Logistics GmbH with the implementation of PSIglobal. The strategic planning and optimisation system is to be used for the optimisation and long-term reduction of costs of a logistics network.

Metroplan is currently conducting analyses and optimisation of the European distribution network for a renowned customer in the sector. Metroplan is using PSIglobal simulation and scenario technology for the required optimisation of the distribution. The IT system from the PSI Logistics Suite provides a multitude of innovative programme functions for the strategic and tactical analysis, planning, design and optimisation of logistic networks. Applying these, Metroplan will initially determine and prepare the key performance indicators in the contractor’s logistics network.

The analysis of the status quo will serve as the basis for the subsequent optimisation steps. With the scenario technology, alternatives will be calculated for the location of the hubs and in combination with the volume streams and transportation volumes, the optimal number and location established. Lorry, rail and ship transportation will be optimised in parallel and consequently the best mixture of cost, time and environmental aspects determined. Additional functionality will include a transparent and initiator-based distribution of costs within the supply chain, thus allowing for optimal negotiations with logistics service providers.

The current 2.4 release of PSIglobal also provides Metroplan the opportunity of combining the monitoring of production and logistics. Such integrated concepts for production and logistics processes are a core business for Metroplan which, as one of the leading technical consulting and planning organisations, was awarded the “Best Logistics Brand 2016”.
