The Challenge:
A wood pellet biomass start-up required a distribution network design to ensure long term cost competitiveness and keep leverage over transportation vendors to support a fixed, multi-year production and export contract.

The Solution:
TCI was engaged to test a series of supply chain network designs for the business and develop a transportation contract negotiations strategy. TCI’s recommendations were implemented reducing shipping costs by over 15%, and accelerating shareholder returns by over $ 1 million annually for 10 years.
