Our Process

  • Assessment and Discovery

    The consulting engagement begins with an in-depth assessment of the client’s current logistics operations. Our consultants gather information about processes, systems, technologies, and performance metrics. They may conduct interviews with key stakeholders and observe operations firsthand to identify strengths, weaknesses, and areas for improvement.

  • Goal Definition

    Based on the assessment findings and discussions with the client, clear goals and objectives are established for the consulting engagement. These goals should align with the client’s strategic priorities and may include objectives such as reducing transportation costs, improving transportation visibility, enhancing customer service, or optimizing supply chain efficiency.

  • Analysis and Benchmarking

    Consultants analyze the collected data and benchmark the client’s logistics performance against historical trends, market performance, and comparable industry standards. This analysis helps identify opportunities for improvement and sets performance targets for the project.

  • Strategy Development

    With a thorough understanding of the client’s goals and challenges, consultants develop a customized logistics strategy to address the identified opportunities. This strategy may include recommendations for process redesign, technology implementation, and performance measurement systems.

  • Change Management

    Successful implementation of logistics improvements often requires changes in processes, workflows, and organizational culture. Consultants support the client in managing these changes effectively by providing training, communication strategies, and stakeholder engagement activities. Additional support is available through our Managed Transportation Services.

  • Performance Monitoring and Optimization

    Throughout the implementation process, consultants track key performance indicators (KPIs) to monitor progress and identify any deviations from the plan. They work collaboratively with the client to address challenges and make adjustments as needed to ensure that the desired outcomes are achieved.

  • Continuous Improvement

    Even after the initial project is completed, consultants may continue to work with the client on an ongoing basis to support continuous improvement efforts and help adapt to changing market conditions, technologies, and business needs.

Signs That Your Company Can Benefit from Logistics Consulting Services

  • High Transportation Costs

    Rising transportation costs or unpredictable expenses related to shipping and logistics can indicate the need for consulting services to help streamline operations and reduce costs.

  • Lack of Visibility

    If you lack visibility into your supply chain processes, including tracking shipments, monitoring inventory levels, or analyzing performance metrics, our consultants can help you select and implement systems to provide better visibility.

  • Technology Integration

    Implementing new technologies such as warehouse management systems (WMS), transportation management systems (TMS), or enterprise resource planning (ERP) systems may require specialized knowledge and experience that Sheer’s consultants can provide.

  • Scalability Challenges

    Difficulty in scaling your operations to meet increasing demand or adapting to changes in market conditions may indicate the need for logistical expertise to design flexible and scalable supply chain solutions.

  • Regulatory Compliance Concerns

    Compliance with regulations related to transportation, environmental sustainability, or safety standards can be complex and may require specialized knowledge to ensure adherence.

Awards & Accolades


Great question! Logistics Consulting Services and Managed Transportation are both related to optimizing transportation and logistics operations, but they differ in focus, scope, and the level of involvement.

Consulting Services focus on providing strategic guidance, analysis, and recommendations to improve overall logistics processes and operations.

Managed Transportation can include all of those services, but also focus on assisting with the day-to-day management and execution of transportation activities.

All of our Managed Transportations engagements include Consulting Services. Not all Consulting engagements inclue Managed Transportation Services.

By leveraging Sheer’s expertise, our logistics consultants can help businesses streamline operations, increase productivity, enhance customer satisfaction, and ultimately improve profitability. We do this by offering tailored solutions to address specific challenges within your business and seize opportunities for growth.

Logistics consulting services are valuable for businesses of all sizes and across various industries, including manufacturing, retail, food & beverage, chemicals, and more. Any organization with complex supply chain operations can benefit from the insights and recommendations provided by logistics consulting.

The timeline for seeing results depends on the complexity of the recommendations and the extent of changes required. In some cases, our clients may start to see immediate improvements in efficiency and cost savings, while in others, it may take several months to fully realize the benefits of implemented changes.

When selecting a logistics consulting service, it’s essential to consider factors such as the firm’s industry experience, track record of success, expertise in specific areas of logistics, and the qualifications of their consultants. Look for consultants with experience in your industry and ask to speak with a consultants previous clients.
