    Business Intelligence

    Being a cost leader and offering differentiated services and or products to customers has become a key target for many companies. Product life cycles have become shorter through the different stages of introduction, growth, maturity and decline. Customers today have access to more market information that ever before. Supply chains are
    increasingly required to become more agile and flexible for many industries. To meet today’s challenges, companies need to be adequately informed on key market data that drives cost and long term strategy.

    Scio NS offers customers market data on customs, freight and warehousing within the East African market along with key logistics service providers who are capable of providing these specific services. Our information allows our customers to make better adjustments which lead to contacts that offer great service at affordable rates to customers thereby enhancing the overall customer experience.

    We also offer the same level of advice to procurement departments to help them identify the best possible options when selecting 3PLs or making the critical decision on whether to outsource or not.

    Logistics Support

    Scio NS Ltd offers logistics support services with particular emphasis on inbound logistics where lack of visibility, control and rising freight costs negatively impact businesses. A key benefit of our support services to our customers is the optimisation of cost by enhancing inbound processes and advising on logistics services providers and

    Whypricing. Consistent SLA and KPI measurements ensure our customers can monitor and proactively react to a dynamic inbound environment.

    Visibility and Control:

    Today, identifying what’s in transit, where it is, when it will arrive, and how much it will cost, requires piecing together information from internal paperwork, carrier websites, and phone calls, a time consuming process. A comprehensive report might take hours or days to prepare.

    Scio NS offers a customised solution that allows our clients the opportunity to focus on their core business while their inbound logistics are optimised to enhance visibility and control. Visibility and control is managed through our Enterprise class management system which provides a platform for improved logistics integration and communication.

    Accurate and timely information allows our clients to make the right decisions with regard to cost, inventory and logistics support providers.

    Rising Costs:

    Poor documentation often results in delays that are costly often leading to eroded margins. Delays increase inventory levels as the supply chain grapples with managing demand and supply. Effective management of information flows across the supply chain is critical to managing costs and enhancing the overall customer experience driven by the supply chain.

    A common area that can become difficult to manage and keep in check are freight services. Rising freight costs along with poor service levels affect customer service and product availability.

    Scio NS offers clients the ability to improve information flows and overall supply chain management through the integration of logistics flows in one integrated enterprise logistics platform.

    Freight market intelligence, better planning and control, carrier and tariff management  coupled with deep knowledge of the local East African environment offers our customers the ability to managed rising costs proactively.
