LPC are able to undertake the detailed modelling required to optimise your network.
LPC will optimise the movement of product from one location to another, for example, back-loading from supplier to a factory location, as part of a distribution operation. Trunking modelling can even be extended to include “via” points to represent:
- Where loads are staged for onward movement by another resource
- Empty container drop or collection

Trunking modelling allows the closer modelling of real life and finds ways to optimise distribution across the country.
