The global logistics services company Panalpina said Wednesday it has opened four logistics competence centers to provide support to its branch offices throughout the world.
The centers, in Prague, Singapore, Buenos Aires, and New Jersey, are intended to support local teams from pre-sales through implementation to continuous improvement. The centers focus on best practices and standardization throughout Panalpina’s network in the areas of tender and bid management, logistics solutions design, operations modelling and optimization, and lean logistics excellence.
“They have been designed so that standard process and procedures are integrated into all of Panalpina's Logistics operations allowing customers to have the confidence of experiencing consistency and transparency globally,” said Kerry Eby, global head of logistics solutions at Panalpina, in a statement.
While the competence centers will focus primarily on warehousing, Panalpina’s Supply Chain Solutions Center in Frankfurt will focus on the same goals on an end-to-end supply chain basis, the company said.
“The objective is not just about providing customers with strategic guidance in regards to supply chain design and execution but about putting the identified optimization possibilities into practice,” Panalpina said.
