When it comes to determining the success of an optimization program, the proof is in the bottom line.
Throughout the process, OIA tracks everything, providing visibility and transparency from point of origin to final destination. At the end of a cycle we provide a complete financial report detailing all of the expenditures and savings. In almost every case, the results have been dramatic, far exceeding expectations. More units per box, fewer boxes purchased, decreased VAT, and reduced transportation costs, for an average overall and per unit cost savings of (30%). These are the kind of numbers that get the attention of CEOs and CFOs, and can really give you a leg up on the corporate ladder.
Good for the environment is also good for business.
As part of our effort to reduce our carbon footprint as well as that of our clients, we also supply an environmental impact report at the completion of every cycle. It details the greenhouse gas savings of CO2 and criteria pollutants Nox, SO2, and PM10.
And because the optimization process, by its very definition, fosters sustainability, the numbers are generally impressive. By maximizing efficiency while minimizing waste, optimization reduces the environmental impact throughout your supply chain. Streamlined packaging, more SKUs per box, material reduction, less waste, more efficient loading, fewer trucks on the road, less CO2 in the air—optimization is obviously good for the planet. But it’s also good for business. It generates economic benefits not just today, with cost-savings across the board, but also tomorrow, as carbon offsets become a currency of the future.
