ALM Intelligence Identifies Best Logistics Consultants

2018 Vanguard Buyer Ratings Guide Rates Global Providers and Specialists

New York, NY – November 27, 2018 – ALM Intelligence – Consulting division, previously known as Kennedy Consulting, has released its 2018 ratings of Logistics consulting providers. Six firms were identified as leaders in the consulting industry: Bain & Company, Camelot Management Consultants, EY LLP, McKinsey & Company, PwC, and Tompkins International. Logistics consulting addresses the development and execution of best practices for managing the movement and storage of goods across the supply chain. Primary activities involve network strategy and design, and warehouse, inventory, and transportation management.

“The shift from brick and mortar to e-commerce is driving greater volume, velocity and channel proliferation resulting in acute shortages in warehouse and trucking capacity and pushing up freight rates, wages, and other costs,” said Naima Hoque Essing, Senior Research Analyst at ALM Intelligence. “The net impact is weighing on company margins and forcing many companies to seek immediate tactical opportunities to improve logistics productivity while laying the foundation for more transformational opportunities.”

Providers that attained challenger status include: A.T. Kearney, Boston Consulting Group, Chainalytics, Crimson & Co., Deloitte LLP, enVista LLC, KPMG, and Oliver Wyman Group.
