What it is

  • The Shipment Cost Simulation App is a great tool to calculate standard and generic rate model for validating scenarios on a transactional basis.
  • Generic cost rate engine works in all pan-European countries.

What it delivers

  • The base rate contains more than 250 distance classes and more than 500 fill rate classes.
  • Every shipment can be adjusted according to your today’s level of as/is costs.

What are the benefits

  • Validate every future scenario based on generic pan-European overland rates.
  • Simulate costs changes for different scenarios and make best decisions regarding your network design.

Your Title Goes Here

Based on the shops’ locations in new markets and warehouse locations, we created a couple of scenarios. First, we calculated shipment costs from a centralized warehouse in Lille to all shops’ locations. These costs are used as a base and compared with different decentralized warehouse options.

We simulate scenarios with distribution centers in Lille and Lyon, then in Lille, Lyon and Bordeaux, and in Turin, Duisburg and Barcelona. When compared with a base, scenario 03 generates the most savings (22,37%).

Based on this, the company decided on using a decentralized warehousing system with distribution centers in Turin, Duisburg and Barcelona.
