So what’s the general perception of outsourcing? Many see the capabilities of 3pls in simple terms of trucks and sheds management and a bit of efficiency improvement (lane by lane etc) Many 3pls are pretty good at this, we are pretty good at this ….. If this is all you want from a 3pl that’s fine but your are not exploiting, exploring and explaining all the opportunities that working with a 3pl can offer you … Just in the areas of trucks and sheds, the right logistics partner can offer far more than just a commodity at a price - access to shared networks - flexible solutions that can grow with your business - supply chain and logistics experience and best practice from difference sectors and from around the world If you get your relationship right, your logistics provider can help in the creation of significant value - in the right circumstances 2 + 2 can equal 5
The only constant in business is change Look how business has changed over the past two decades, in terms of Geography (Far East), Technology (e-commerce, tracking), Political (EU harmonisation) and Business (Supermarkets providing Insurance, Woolworths, 24/7 culture) LSP’s have adapted to meet the changes and challenges your businesses require and supported your onward growth agenda’s
Today’s challenges are placing pressure on everyone The effects of these challenges make supply chain management even harder However, you can create value from your supply chain to ease the pressure, e.g lower inventory,
When Should You Stay In House When business is stable and controllable When should you Outsource To support growth/consolidation Change programmes e.g mergers/acquisition Require Logistics Expertise Cost Savings – typically 20% cost savings achieved when switching from Inhouse to Outsource for cost reasons Service Challenges Geographic Location Reduce Risk/Finance Strategy – asset light on Balance Sheet Concentrate on core activities IR issues Benefits of Outsourcing Cost Efficiency Improved Productivty, Shared User Networks, Synergy Service Capability Quality Service, Breadth of vision globally; leverage of customer base; Total Services Provided Expertise Innovation, Environmental, Engineering -automation Experience DHL will probably have existing logistics solution somewhere in the world; IT WMS Capability; BCP Skills e.g Bunsfield People Logistics Professionals; TUPE; Implementation Skills
As per the quote, value isn’t about hammering down prices For e.g if you deliver 20,000 pallets pa and negotiated a £1 reduction in your transport rates you would save £20,000. However, iy you re-engineered you moved to an Integrated Transport Control Tower you may save £100,000’s pa The more experienced/professional the LSP, the more potential value you can unlock However, value doesn’t come through negotiation, it comes through working together partnership
Think about what you are wanting to achieve What service issue are you trying to address Don’t choose a local haulier to solve your Far East Consolidation problems
The CILT Survey results clearly show that many companies use outsourcing to support their business The results also show that there is no trend back towards in-sourcing At DHL we also survey our customers, through our First Choice programme c90% of customers renew their contracts with DHL Therefore, we must be delivering value and justify our fee through outsourcing, as customers continue to outsource and renew their contracts.
Value can be generated across the supply chain Don’t just look at warehousing and transport How do you manage your Inbound Supply Chain, or do you leave that to Procurement, do Procurement leave it to the Supplier? Co-Packing Services How do you manage your after sales and Reverse Logistics Services? These areas can make a difference and add value to your own business If you choose the right partner, they can provide you with sector experience Cross fertilise knowledge and practices between sectors
In Summary? Should I outsource - the answer is – it depends – look at circumstances in your business Do LSP’s justify fee? - well - we listen to customers we understand business environment we adapt to changing landscape Think about how too maximise value in the outsourcing process If you want value creation work with a partner who can help you with this….

In-sourcing v outsourcing “ Outsourcing has been the dominant trend in logistics over the past two decades and examples of contracts being taken in-house are rare. The fact that the UK's largest retailer believes it can manage logistics operations more profitably and efficiently itself is particularly noteworthy”. “ As the economy tightens, companies are taking a hard look at areas they maybe really should be keeping internal, and actually, maybe shouldn't have outsourced in the first place (or maybe out sourced to the wrong firm). In these times, companies need service providers (both internally and externally) that fully understand the company's needs”. “ At a time when companies are trying to convert fixed costs into variable costs to gain scalability I don't think there was ever a time when outsourcing made more sense”. “ the outsourced logistics industry is poised for strong expansion because of the growing trend toward outsourcing by manufacturers so they can focus on their core competencies”. “ It is easier to outsource than to define the problem and solve it”. “ The global contract logistics market grew at 5% in 2008 according to the latest report published by Transport Intelligence, Global Contract Logistics 2009 . This represents a significant weakening of the market after several years of growth of around 10%”.
