  1. 1. © Foremost Quality Logistics Confidential 1 How the Site Selection Game is Played? September 10, 2013 PREPARED BY: Tim Feemster Managing Principal Foremost Quality Logistics O: 469-554-9873 C: 214-693-7689 @tsfeemster - twitter
  2. 2. © Foremost Quality Logistics Confidential What about Site Selection & Using a Professional • Site selection is both an art and a science, best handled by professionals • Almost all companies are risk averse • Most company employees have never moved a site in their existing company or even their entire career • I have done over 100 start-ups in my career, most site selectors have not done that many • Many site selection companies have specialties- incentives, taxes, data centers, etc. but don’t team with others • You may know more about a subject than the site selection company. Use this to your advantage? • Incentives rarely make a bad location a good one, be careful • We are site eliminators, not selectors 2
  3. 3. © Foremost Quality Logistics Confidential Teamwork- Team projects like those that come down from the State. Who is LEADING, who is not committed, are you on the same page? 3
  4. 4. © Foremost Quality Logistics Confidential Seven Trends Affecting Industrial Site Selection 1. Growing demand in emerging global markets 2. Rising transportation costs 3. Emerging logistics hubs and the expansion of the Panama Canal 4. Downward pressure on rents, now ending and a “flight-to-quality” in real estate 5. Opting for more flexibility with 3PLs 6. Navigating more stringent financial hurdles 7. ecommerce, mcommerce, scommerce Source: Napolitano, Maida (2009), “Site Selection: 5 Trends for the New Economy,” Logistics Management, Vol. 48, No. 9, pp. 42-47. and Foremost Quality Logistics Logistics 4

  10. 10. © Foremost Quality Logistics Confidential Location Screening for Industrial/Manufacturing Let the data lead us. Identify locations by looking at everything at the start instead of artificially starting with a set of predefined “preferred” or “best-in-class” areas. First Pass: Fatal Flaws Screen out locations with fatal flaws e.g. Locations with insufficient connectivity or high logistics cost. Second Pass: Major Flaws Rule out Locations with major flaws e.g. Locations with key attributes but inadequate infrastructure like no intermodal, international airport or seaport access. Third Pass: Manageable Flaws Consider Locations that meet all critical criteria but have manageable issues – flaws that can be remedied or mitigated through negotiations with government officials Preferred and back-up Locations (1-2) Quantitative Analysis And Desktop Research Identify All Site Selection Criteria Site Due Diligence, Qualitative Data Gathering, and Cost Modeling Short List of Preferred Locations and Sites 10 Source: Foremost Quality Logistics

  12. 12. © Foremost Quality Logistics Confidential RFP Critical Elements • Regionalization will get you more hits • Correct and up to date data • Answer all the questions • Use an appendix to add additional details or elements not asked for in the RFP • Site certification can be a real plus or can be a Fatal Flaw- remember what I said about RISK • Consistency of message between partners- state, regional, and local- deviate and it will cost you • Site tours can make or break the process • Remember site selection is GLOBAL, not just the US or your neighboring State/City 12 Source: Tim Feemster Foremost Quality Logistics
