HMH Vision

Distribution & Logistics Consulting

Our definition of Distribution comprise all activities that move products from suppliers to customers. Fundamental activities related to warehousing, inventory control and transportation are key elements of this.

The importance of these activities cannot be understated, as they represent a significant investment of company resources. Improvements in these areas can significantly enhance the customer experience, drive sales, reduce cost and improve margin.

The reality we have come across in a number of companies is that Sales tend to want significant inventory to guarantee service; finance want inventory minimized to reduce working capital, and operations want sufficient raw material to keep equipment operating efficiently. Optimizing this scenario is as much complex as it is ultimately rewarding for the company and its performance. 

HMH Vision – we offer advice in all aspects of Warehousing Operations, WMS and Design, Supply Chain and Logistics Operations as well as set up and optimization of Distribution Network Strategy.
