Supply Chain Optimization and Location Strategy
With over 25 years of experience, Evergreen Location Strategies’ team performs operational and location assessments to optimize supply chains and facility networks. The need for supply chain realignment can be caused by a number of internal events such as shifting customer base, new products, changing product mix, and new markets; as well as external events like tax structure changes, new legislation, community turmoil, workforce challenges, and natural disasters. The need for network realignment can happen through rapid growth, mergers, acquisitions, acquisition-based growth model, geographic expansion, and supply chain shifts. In all cases, ELS is poised to work with your company to develop and execute a strategy resulting in cost minimization, logistics optimization, location optimization, relevant and productive workforce, positive community relationship, and strong return on investment.
Community Evaluation and Site Selection
Whether you are making a location decision for relocation, new facility, expansion, facility investment, or consolidation, it is critical to fully assess the community and real estate.
- Does the community have the appropriate workforce?
- Does the community have adequate infrastructure?
- Is the local university and college system positioned to support the facility in the short- and long-term?
- What is the tax landscape?
- What are the costs to do business?
- Does the site have adequate infrastructure?
- Is the site properly zoned? What will it cost to get the building or site move-in ready?
- Does the jurisdiction have competent and functional leadership?
- Does the community have a stable local economic base?
These are just a few examples of the holistic consideration that must be given to each candidate community and site. We help you identify the factors that will be critical to the success of your facility then customize our assessment to your business’ needs.
