The rental business of the client involved frequent transfers of ?eets between branches to meet the demand. This, at times led to sub-optimal transfers. Such transfers were not cost-effective and reduced the overall margins. The client wanted to quantify the impact of sub-optimal transfers and instate a solution that could reduce such transfers.
We followed a two-step process:
35% reduction in sub-optimal transfers during the ?rst quarter of implementation
Reduced stock out days through better anticipation of future demand
