An $11B global rolled aluminum products manufacturer expected a significant shortfall in EBITDA and was actively pursuing cost savings opportunities. They engaged A&M to analyze $200M in logistics and distribution spend for savings opportunities and to optimize their logistics network.
The A&M team modeled current spend and identified multiple cost savings opportunities. Based on the assessment, A&M constructed a 2 year strategic roadmap to reduce costs, mature the client’s logistics capabilities and increase EBITDA through network improvements.
Over the next year, A&M partnered with the client to produce $12M in savings through five performance improvement projects including shipment planning and execution, strategic sourcing, operating model development, KPI implementation and TMS selection.
