Global trends and regulations will change the postal market. Within the letter business, market liberalisation and digitalisation will modify product portfolios and lead to decreasing volumes. Postal organisations must think about how to reduce delivery times, while parcel businesses must contend with increased shipment volumes. A key challenge will be how to handle the varying volumes between countries. These fundamental changes require the reorganisation of current transport networks and the transport management function within postal and courier, express and parcel (CEP) operators.
How BearingPoint brings value
BearingPoint has been advising on network and transport management optimisation for more than ten years, and helps postal/CEP companies to find the right solutions for their key challenges.
Defining future business scenarios within all of the key calculation parameters – volumes, delivery time, costs, CO2-reduction, and so on – and evaluation them using simulation tools.
Definition and evaluation of scenarios to optimise the transport costs for pickup, delivery and line hauls for different transport networks. Our models help to identifying potential synergies between pickup and delivery, and facilitate calculation of the most cost efficient transport tours. They can also assist with developing processes for coordination and monitoring of transport performance (cost and quality).
