With the ever-accelerating demand for better products, delivered faster and cheaper, in the most sustainable way, companies need to adapt their supply chains rapidly. This requires professional procurement of logistics services with a strong focus on Total-costs-of-ownership and stakeholder management, generating sustainable results – good for the company, its employees and the environment.
In most companies, logistics activities are complex, and responsibilities are scattered throughout the organization. Logistics spend is often undermanaged, and sustainability a low priority, because there is a strong misconception that green logistics increases costs. Underdeveloped governance and KPI performance measurement will also not help to manage internal change.
Moretimer supports companies in generating real and sustainable savings in logistics. Our services include strategic advice, coaching, training and procurement outsourcing, taking over procurement activities in the area of logistics: road and intermodal transport, warehousing, seafreight, airfreight, control tower functions, pallets and material handling equipment. With our self-developed models, specialized tools and extensive people network, solid reductions in Total-Costs-of-Ownership and CO2 emissions have been achieved in the past, proving the value of our approach.
With both having backgrounds in logistics procurement, the idea to start-up a company together did not need any further explanation. The shortage of logistics procurement experts in the contractor’s market, demands a different approach to fulfill the needs of many corporate clients. In the end, the model to work with fulltime contractors is not completely sustainable, and for sure very costly. Not to mention the loss of knowledge every time when contractors leave.
Moretimer differentiates two main types of services: to advance procurement functions within companies and business process outsourcing (BPO). Both types generate a much more sustainable effect than temporary interim solutions. This way-of-working should bring real value and sustainable savings to the client, securing continuity and - most importantly - FUN for everybody involved.
