Transport & Logistics

Our expertise:

With more than 10 years’ experience in transport and logistics, we support the major players in the freight industry (carriers, freight forwarders, etc.) and their customers (shippers, consignees, etc.) in meeting the many challenges presented by a sector that is constantly reinventing itself. Our work is structured around three key areas: business transformation, the digital/IT dimension and regulatory issues.

#Your Challenges

After some exceptional years, market players must once again demonstrate their resilience and adaptability by continuing to deliver the best possible customer experience and improving their operational efficiency in the face of deteriorating and challenging market conditions. They have to adapt to falling demand, while facing growing complexity on all fronts: rising fuel prices, skilled labour shortages, various disruptions, the emergence of friendshoring and nearshoring…

At the same time, major investments and transformations are needed to meet the objectives set for the environment. The challenges are numerous:

  • Fully exploiting the new opportunities arising from the various acquisitions made as the market consolidated.
  • Preserving margins and seeking new sources of growth in a global context that has become highly competitive once again.
  • Achieving the sustainability targets imposed by the legal framework and demanded by customers.
  • Closing the data quality gap.
  • Implement informational excellence by modernising and developing digital tools.
  • Accelerating the optimisation of the customer experience and the efficiency and resilience of operations, in particular through predictive solutions.

‘A greener supply chain: environmental issues must become second nature to everyone. The first issue concerns the materials used to make products greener. It’s important to know where the materials used in manufacturing come from and to use primary materials as much as possible.’

Supply Chain Optimisation

A major player in the luxury goods industry has embarked on a cost-cutting programme and wants to transform its transport strategy. With a view to improving distribution times and controlling budgetary constraints, the company has launched a global call for tenders for export logistics. The project involves various approaches, such as cost optimisation, benchmarks and strategic partnerships, to improve efficiency and meet the challenges posed by the Covid-19 crisis.

TNP contributed to the definition of the supply target by carrying out internal benchmarks and market price analyses. 

What made the difference

TNP made effective use of its project expertise, management capabilities, analytical skills and ‘hands-on’ approach. Our team of 10 consultants possessed both analytical skills and practical experience, and TNP was able to generate significant savings. The implementation of the project resulted in a reduction in delivery times of 1 to 3 days (depending on the destination) and a 17% reduction in costs compared with the Group’s overall budget.

White Label Solutions (2022)

A leading global transport and logistics company was looking for a centralised platform to optimise purchased capacity against customer demand across global airlines, improving the efficiency of capacity buying and selling and the visibility of capacity planning operations. In addition, the company aimed to reassess its CO2 calculation tool and identify opportunities for optimisation.

TNP notably clarified the vision of the tool, certified the feasibility, proposed the development, designed the architecture and developed the mock-ups. Our Data Factory carried out the functional analysis, a quantitative study of the data and the IT audit of the future tool’s ecosystem.

What made the difference

We carried out an in-depth study of 7 use cases, identified 15 weak points and provided 18 recommendations in 3 categories: 

  • Optimisation of governance,
  • Alignment of estimates
  • Improving data quality

Creation of a predictive cockpit for shipping delays (dynamic user)

In the context of disruptions to freight activity, our tool can anticipate arrival delays (ETAs) up to 6 months in advance of vessel departure.

By offering proactive services and improving visibility, the company can effectively mitigate risks in a disrupted environment and help customers make informed decisions about their choice of carriers/logistics routes by evaluating scenarios and proposing concrete alternatives. With a machine learning database of more than 300,000 shipments covering 210 countries and territories, TNP has developed the ability to predict the day of arrival and propose alternative scenarios.

What made the difference

Our knowledge of the sector and our 100% in-house development enabled us to :

  • Develop a high-performance model (87% accuracy rate for predicting shipment delays and 73% for estimating the duration of delays)
  • Present the results in a way that makes an impact, as it was co-constructed with users
  • Ensure optimal adoption

At TNP, we are sincerely committed to serving our transport and logistics customers by introducing sustainable supply chain practices for a greener future.

Our commitment is to offer innovative, cutting-edge logistics solutions based on the latest technological advances, while striving for operational excellence to deliver the best results for our customers.
