Thai to English: Logistics Analysis of relocating a Bank Reserve Distribution center via Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) General field: Bus/Financial Detailed field: Transport / Transportation / Shipping
Translation - English Facility relocation decision is considered a strategic one which has a long-term impact on business competitiveness in terms of cost efficiency, service level and accessibility to marketplace. This paper investigates the impacts of relocating a company’s logistics facility. Specifically, a case study of a logistics provider for a bank, whose services include cash pick-up and deliveries, and ATM refill, is conducted. Some of the major logistics issues caused by the relocation of the company’s distribution center are identified through process observation and in-depth interview. Analytical Hierarchy Process (AHP) is implemented to evaluate and rank the importance of the logistics issues according to the needs and requirements of the company’s policy makers. The four criteria for use of AHP include cost, responsiveness, reliability and utilization. Results show that, according to the company’s perspective, the development of logistics KPIs is given the highest priority, followed by improvement of internal process, vehicle routing, network design, and inventory management, respectively. The findings are used in developing action plans for logistics upgrade after the facility relocation.
