CabaLogistics team of logistics industry veterans has the experience and latest market knowledge to support your rail, truck, barge and steamship movements, whether your challenges are strategic, operational, or supporting technologies.

Every business function needs a periodic, objective “check-up”, especially one with numerous service providers, alternatives and opportunities for improvement. Our consultants can provide immediate guidance in diagnosing the bottlenecks and breakdowns in your logistics operations and provide practical recommendations that can improve your business with short- and long-term solutions.

Benchmarking

Sustained improvement requires a game plan – understanding your company’s current supply chain performance compared to industry peers and “best-in-class” targets, and then developing cost-effective improvement plans that will boost both financial and operational results. PLG’s experienced team will independently analyze your company data, perform competitive analysis utilizing industry information, and work with you to develop a common-sense, improvement road map.

Network Optimization

Today’s global companies operate as a vast, complex logistical network, impacting suppliers, factories, distribution centers and customers.

PLG uses high-performance analytical tools and years of industry experience to evaluate client logistics networks and make practical recommendations for game-changing performance improvements.
