Case 1

Brief

Our client, a manufacturer of natural waters, has three plants in different locations around the country where they perform filling and bottling. Their distribution network consists of about 100 distributors who serve retailers. To optimize operations, our client uses five rented distribution centers (DCs) located in five major cities, which are supplied directly from our client’s plants, and provide only logistics support (stocking of products, loading/unloading, some pre-sale preparation: wrapping, re-palletizing). Our client supplies 100 distributors from those DCs. Recently, the Finance Director of the client has raised concerns that those DCs seem to be very costly for the company.

Questions

What options for distribution network adjustments can our client have if management decides to eliminate DCs? 

What factors should they consider before deciding whether to eliminate DCs?

Case 2

Brief

Our client is a medical company that manufactures equipment (small- and mid-size biochemical analyzers) for small- and mid-size laboratories and consumables for equipment (reagents) in Western Europe. They sell both product categories either directly to hospitals and private laboratories, or via distributors. Recently the company experienced a loss of market share and profits in Western Europe:

  • These markets became very saturated with many new manufacturers entering.
  • Consolidation led to bigger labs increasing their requirements for large equipment that the manufacturer does not produce.
  • Because of these two tendencies, prices for both equipment (analyzers) and consumables (reagents) are under increasing pressure. The manufacturer is losing market share, profits, and sales.

The client’s management considers entering developing markets (Eastern Europe, China, Central Asia). However, they are already late entrants and the management is afraid of losing even more.

Questions

Should they enter into new markets? How?
What should be their focus?
What other options may they consider? (give as many as you can)
