Our hands-on and highly experienced logistics team works closely with customers to achieve significant supply chain improvements, with positive impact for the overall business.

Benefits from professionally-operated Mainstream Logistics can include:

  • Lower cost warehousing
  • Fast and efficient distribution
  • Freed up capital for investment, due to reduced warehouse space

To develop supply chain solutions we use a proven process. It creates clear solutions for our customers, as well as mitigating the risk of change.

Analysis

We invest the time to gain an in-depth understanding of our customers' current business model and underlying business needs. It includes gaining a clear understanding of the 'Customer Promise' and business strategy, not simply the physical supply chain profile.

Design

Mainstream has a wealth of experience to draw upon when designing solutions for our customers. Knowledge gained across a wide range of market segments is used to test and validate design options.

A modelled solution will clearly define the following areas:

  • cost components
  • improvement opportunities
  • key performance indicators
  • business rules

A well-designed solution enables customers to understand how Mainsteam Logistics can complement their business as a true Supply Chain Partner

Implementation

Implementation Planning is critical to the success of any outsourced solution. We understand the importance of a seamless transition for both staff and customers, and the value of an accurate and well-managed plan.

Experience with successful transitions has given Mainstream Logistics a well-tested platform. It delivers robust Standard Operating Processes for each customer supported by work instructions that clearly define every step of the process..

At Mainstream we understand Brand value, both our customers' and our own. We appreciate the integral part we play in delivering our customers' 'Brand Promise' to their market - and we take our role seriously.

Throughout the implementation process our focus is on creating systems that remove cost, improve speed to market and ultimately deliver on our customers' promise.
