CBRE Supply Chain Advisory helps clients solve complex business problems and build distinct advantage through supply chain transformations. We focus on determining the most effective supply chain strategy, supported by a relevant network and infrastructure footprint that meets current and future operational needs. We deliver exceptional, tailored outcomes built on clients’ specific business priorities, strategies and supporting data.

Supply Chain Strategy

Using services uniquely packaged to meet your needs, we evaluate the potential impact of supply chain levers on your company’s ability to meet its business objectives. We look to integrate your internal areas of expertise to deliver fully aligned practical strategies.

Network Design

Using an iterative, data-driven process we evaluate the number, location, size and role of facilities in your supply chain network and compare the difference in cost and service between the current baseline network and various proposed scenarios. Our collaborative approach ensures a balanced outcome aligned to your business needs.

Outsourcing and 3PL Selection

We evaluate your supply chain processes to define requirements and establish the baseline for logistics costs and service levels while identifying challenges and areas of improvement. We also author and manage RFPs for roles within your supply chain to support business goals and facilitate the selection process and transition planning to ramp-up 3PL operations.

Business Case Development
 
Whether leading or supporting the development of the financial justification and roadmap, our team serves as the conduit between your business problems and industrial real estate decisions. We help ensure your supply chain executive team and approach are aligned with your overall business imperatives.

Operations Assessment
 
To identify improvement opportunities across people, process and technology, we evaluate your supply chain’s performance in warehouse operations, transportation, distribution, inventory and order management. The outcome enables you to maximize use of your current network and infrastructure.

Facility Concept Design
 
We develop facility design requirements that meet your needs in terms of operations, processes, product flow, productivity and cost management, incorporating technology solutions suitable for your business. Concept designs enable network assessments, and more detailed designs enable build-to-suit delivery.
