CASE STUDY: Turners Auctions
“Intent was able to quickly identify our key issues in the supply chain and worked effectively with our people to prioritise the necessary improvement actions.”
Graham Roberts, CEO, Turners Auctions
When Turners recognised a need to reduce costs and improve supply chain responsiveness to the market, Intent was called on to provide guidance. Turners especially wanted to identify any opportunities to improve its logistics performance and minimise freight and logistics costs.
THE SOLUTION: Supply Chain Review
Eager to understand existing expenses, alternative shipping rates, and identify any processes that could be changed to improve the way its business operates, Turners turned to Intent Group for help with developing a clear plan of action.
Following the review, Intent provided management with valuable insight, including:
The impact of significant logistical costs and lengthy cycle times
Discrepancies in repair, panel and paint costs throughout the business
Factors impacting vehicle profit, such as the occurrence of volatile purchasing practices
Cost and time saving opportunities
Further work helped realise many opportunities for the Turners team.
