Cost to Serve (CTS) is an analysis that calculates the profitability of products, customers, and routes to market, and provides a fact-based focus for decision making on service mix and operational changes for each customer that a business caters to.
Customer satisfaction is the biggest driver of success for supply chain businesses. But with all the focus laid on fulfilling customer expectations, profitability should not be overlooked.
Logistics costs often make up a big part of the overall Cost to Serve for supply chains. By performing a Cost-to-Serve analysis, it is possible to understand what it truly costs to deliver an item or service to a customer, and make well-informed decisions to reduce the CTS.
