TranSystems: Real Estate Decisions Affect Supply Chain

Real estate and supply chain strategies can be difficult to align, but TranSystems offers tips to make the best decision.

Randall Gibson, Principal, Vice President, TranSystems (9-8-2010)
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?
