Task

We were asked to independently analyse four potential supplier submissions over two rounds of a third-party logistics tender to see who provided the best solution and potential improvements.

Process

We used bespoke vehicle routing software to independently test the assumptions and conclusions drawn in the tender documents. We produced long and short scorecards for each proposal, representing Miralis’ expert opinion on modelling suggestions and approaches as well as factual based answers to:

  • Time windows stress (expected arrival time at site)
  • Which sites would unfairly bare the impact of congestion or other delays
  • The potential impact at site operationally by combining deliveries
  • Comparison between vehicle fill, current and potential
  • Mileage comparison
  • Changes required in driver employment shift starting/ending times
