SOLUTION: Venn-Corps Project Logistics Services MANUFACTURER DISTRIBUTION CENTER RETAILER THERE IS A NEED FOR AN EFFECTIVE AND RESPONSIVE PROJECT LOGISTICS MODEL Since distribution patterns rarely change, efficiencies are developed by frequent competitive bidding by logistics providers Typical Supply Chain Costs are Reduced by Repetition
What is the definition of A Project: A planned endeavor with a defined start and ending, which when completed meets all pre-established objectives.

PROJECT OWNER How Does A Project Differ From Other Forms of Distribution?
Owner Established Expectations Issues PO# to vendor with planned delivery information POTENTIAL PROBLEMS: Continuous maintenance of project logistics staff Vendor unable to meet production schedules Unable to meet manage transport logistics to meet delivery schedule PROJECT OWNER PROJECT VENDOR Product Ships from Vendor Acting on PO# Instructions, vendor ships product to job site POTENTIAL PROBLEMS: Permitting issues Labor / Weather delays Damages / Claims Miscommunication within the project team Variable project logistics activity despite fixed logistics overhead. THE JOB SITE Warehousing Handling / Recovery Damage Loss Crew Changes Delays / Acceleration HOW DO YOU CONTROL COSTS AND STAY ON SCHEDULE ? HOW DO YOU MEET EXPECTATIONS AND STILL CONTROL COSTS? Failure to React to Changes at Job Site Will Lead to Increased Secondary Costs Including: If the FF&E delivery is left controlled by the manufacturer, all transportation choices will be subservient to the strategy of the vendor and is unlikely to mesh with the projects schedule.
