Flogas, one of the UK's largest suppliers of Liquefied Petroleum Gas (LPG) is reporting significant progress in its quest to reduce costto- serve. Working with Cirrus Logistics, the company has successfully simulated options for network change using Cirrus's COST2SERV Network Strategy software tool and, while it is still early days, Flogas believes that the results of the work will pave the way to reduced greenhouse gas emissions and total distribution costs in the order of five per cent.

Carol Chapman of Cirrus Logistics says: "COST2SERV discloses options for reductions in cost-to-serve within existing constraints and enables total supply chain costs to be considered. In addition, it identifies the optimal distribution network using mathematical optimisation techniques."
