Mining logistics improvements deliver A$45 million net benefit

Designing an integrated supply chain to improve performance and output at an underground mine within six weeks.

01 Issue

The client set a strategic goal to increase performance and output but was constrained by inefficient supply chains and logistics systems, and processes that lacked clarity.

02 Solution

We undertook a detailed analysis of the operational supply chain, logistics systems and material flows. We collected, observed and analysed data, and identified bottlenecks and inefficiencies in both surface and underground operations for the business. We developed a seamless integrated supplies network that minimised waste and maximised asset utilisation.

03 Result

Through these supply chain improvements we identified annual benefits of between A$20 million to A$30 million, with an overall project net present value greater than A$45 million.
