Consulting Services - Distribution Network Design and Optimization Solution


Closing Date: 01/05/2018 02:00:59 PM ET


The LCBO is seeking responses from qualified professional consultants with extensive knowledge, experience and specialized expertise in supply chain particularly in distribution network design.
As LCBO expands its distribution channel and at the same time shift its business model emphasis to being both a retailer and wholesaler, LCBO needs to strengthen the capability of its supply chain. As LCBO takes on these new and expanding business channels and increasing volume, LCBO is re-visiting its fulfillment and distribution network to be able to respond with speed, agility and effectiveness to the needs of the customers in a more complex supply chain.
The main focus and objective for this project is to recommend to the LCBO an optimum distribution network and develop a time-phased strategic roadmap.  This will identify the major steps involved in the transformation from the current distribution network to the future state that will increase distribution flexibility, improve product and information flow, optimize customer service, reduce risk, and achieve lower cost.
Key objectives of this project are the following:

  • Determine the optimum number and location of facilities within the LCBO distribution network.
  • Identify servicing capability of each facility (e.g. main DC, order fulfillment centre, break bulk facility, flow-through facility, etc.), capacity and size which will provide the best service level at the lowest cost.
  • Evaluate how an alternative network performs in terms of logistics cost and customer service performance as compared to the current state.
  • Identify the changes that need to be made with the current LCBO supply chain to support anticipated growth and alternative network proposal.
  • Develop a time-phased strategic roadmap for the LCBO on how the recommended network should be implemented from current distribution network to the future state.
