Structural review

The Client:

An international logistics company.

The Project:

A leading international logistics company commissioned us to undertake an Efficiency Review to identify operational efficiencies and improvements for implementation.

The Approach:

The outcomes driving the project included standardisation of processes & practices across all offices, streamlining of processes and maximising resource utilisation to improve profitability in a low margin sector. The primary areas of focus for the review included:

  • Function and structure of the client organisation

  • Current business processes, practices and requirements

  • Identify process improvements and assess various options

  • Improve existing controls and monitoring systems

  • Suggest re-engineering where appropriate

  • Identify cultural factors impacting on change management.

We adopted a participative approach and invited all office staff to be involved in the review process.  Staff in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney were interviewed separately to obtain open feedback in a confidential environment.  

The Outcome:

For staff unavailable during the review period, interviews were conducted by telephone. From this analysis, recommendations were developed outlining potential improvements to the operations of the organisation for implementation. We were engaged for the next 18 months to oversee and implement the recommendations from the review.
