Supply chain strategy and design

Today's supply chains are technology intensive. Cat Logistics takes technology and systems design to an executable level. Efficient, well-designed supply chains require advanced technology to support and optimise the solution.

Materials management services

The essence of materials management is in achieving industry-leading customer service by providing the right products to the right place and at the right time while optimising inventory investment. Cat Logistics' experienced staff applies advanced analytics and processes, modelling techniques and technologies, along with extensive supply chain performance monitoring tools, to work with clients to achieve their cost and service objectives.

Cat Logistics manages the inventory replenishment of more than 500,000 stock keeping units for Caterpillar using proven inventory management business processes, advanced analytics, and world-class materials management technology.

Its world-class fill rate to customers in its vast global network of independent dealers is without peer in the automotive and industrial market sectors, and remains as Caterpillar's most significant competitive strength.

Manufacturing logistics

Cat Logistics can quickly assess the efficiency of the customer's supply chain and successfully plan and implement value-added processes to streamline assets, reduce cost, and improve responsiveness.

Caterpillar operates more than 100 manufacturing plants around the world. As a result, we understand the dynamic, time-sensitive, lean manufacturing environment required of a contract logistics provider. We can bring this knowledge and expertise to the customer and can help achieve the kinds of cost reduction and just-in-time manufacturing excellence that it has achieved for its parent, Caterpillar.

Global transportation services

Transportation involves the physical movement of goods through the supply chain by ground, rail, air, and water. Transportation management is a key enabler to improved customer service and generates a significant portion of supply chain costs.

Because of the size and global scope of its parent company, Caterpillar, Cat Logistics is one of the largest users of global transportation services in all different types of delivery modes and maintains valuable relationships with industry-leading carriers of all types. As a result, it has gained the experience and the buying leverage to help its customers achieve lower annual transportation costs while achieving demanding customer service delivery requirements.

We are one of the world's largest contract logistics companies with a rich experience in global operations and best practice performance metrics in service parts logistics.

Over the last seventeen years, we have developed a proven track record with customers in reducing current distribution centre operating costs, providing an improved competitive advantage in the distribution channel and creating additional shareholder value through outsourcing.

Reverse logistics

A supply chain is not complete without the efficient management of reverse logistics. Cat Logistics manages the reverse flow of products and materials for the purpose of returns, repair, re-stocks, remanufacture, and/or recycling to increase return on assets.

Cat Logistics manages the regular return of unneeded or excess inventory for not only Caterpillar, but for many of our larger automotive and industrial customers. This capability enhances the overall efficiency of the customer's supply chain and helps improve the loyalty, profitability and strength of the customer's dealer network.
