Real estate and supply chain decisions can significantly affect each other. Challenges arise since supply chain demands change rapidly, while real estate decisions require long lead times. A recent TranSystems white paper offers insight into real estate plans that consider supply chain strategies and remain flexible.
TranSystems recommends asking key questions regarding network analysis. These include:
• How will what we do in the distribution facility affect our space needs?
• How will our employee needs change?
• Are there situations where location factors make a good logistics decision a bad business decision?
