Supply Chain Optimisation
What is an Isochrone? An isochrone is rather like a contour line on a map, that joins points of equal height above sea level. Is this case, it highlights customers a set distance or time from the DC or factory.
Our isochrone mapping plots customers based on the travel time or travel distance from the DC that services them.
This technique is invaluable in testing different service lead times and what service levels are really achievable.
Why do it? Isochrone mapping can be used to:
Test different service lead times
Group customers to logical service locations
Assess service options for different regions
Indicate the number of service locations required for given service levels
These Supply Chain Map services can be provided for any region globally and can even be provided via the Internet.
