Packaging optimization – where it all begins

Our packaging optimization services will provide you with priceless insights. We’ll give you a comprehensive outline of the sizes and specifications you need to pack your orders in the most cost-effective way—minimizing waste and maximizing profit.  We can also directly translate more efficient packaging downstream into transportation and labor savings.

Packaging optimization is vital to lean operations and agile supply chains. The most efficient supply chains are those that have gone through a successful packaging optimization process to ensure a competitive edge well into the future. Our performance-based model ensures results and typically provides ROI well under six months.

Transportation optimization

Transportation optimization is the process of reducing or even eliminating costs in your shipping spend. As the largest logistics cost component, this is the biggest opportunity for PLS to find and drive measurable and sustainable cost savings in your operation and across your network. 

We typically find 3-5% net annual transportation savings year-over-year after our engagement and due diligence with no capital investment. Our performance-based model ensures results and typically provides ROI well under six months.

Labor optimization

At PLS, our labor optimization services target your operation’s most important key performance indicators related to picking, packaging and shipping.  We will help you drive measurable and sustainable improvements in UPH.

Our labor optimization solutions provide data-driven conclusions that lead to measurable, tangible, and financially viable results. We normally find 7-10% productivity improvement through our engagements with no capital expense and typically provide ROI well under six months. 

Packaging automation can drive the UPH dramatically higher and we prefer an ROI of one year or less.

Warehouse optimization

Warehouse optimization is the process of driving cost-savings solutions through better space utilization and throughput. First and foremost, we aim to ensure you have a safe, efficient operation. 

Our program will find and drive savings via throughput and space utilization, while reducing errors and improving flexibility, communication and customer satisfaction. We also evaluate warehouse flow, product placement, storage, and retrieval systems. Warehouse optimization is vital to lean warehouses and agile supply chains.
