RE-LOGISTICS PROVIDES TWO BASIC SERVICES:
1. ASSET UTILIZATION PRACTICES
Often the reason top value is not obtained from LAZY ASSETS® is due to weak utilization strategies rather than ineffective disposition. For example, the most skillful disposition will not improve returns from, say, a long-idled plant with obsolete, deteriorated equipment. Had appropriate utilization strategies been in place earlier the results would have been dramatically better.
In our ASSET UTILIZATION PRACTICE we examine the extent to which owned assets contribute to clients' current and reasonably foreseeable future mission. We help clients develop a clearer picture of what properties they hold, and estimate the cost of retaining them. We develop, for the clients, policies and strategies to govern the management of LAZY ASSETS®. We identify "barriers" to fiscally sound property management and develop solutions to eliminate them. We create metrics and incentive systems to gauge and encourage performance, and we train and improve the skills of those charged with asset management. The result is twofold. A. the likely "discovery" of unneeded assets, and B. a management team better equipped to deal with them.
APPLICATION EXAMPLES OF ASSET UTILIZATION INCLUDE:

2. ASSET DISPOSITION STRATEGIES
Re-Logistics offers ASSET DISPOSITION STRATEGIES for assets identified as no longer needed. We regard disposition work as strategic in nature. Creativity and market contacts are key. Here we function as Owner's Agent, or as both Consultant and Agent. In this phase we develop disposition objectives, which serve as implementation "marching orders". Targets, timing, and risk management constraints are included here. There has been a recent increase in "e-auctioneering sites", many of which are supported by the Government. Auctioneers have strengths and limitations. A strategic disposition plan may well lead to the use of an auctioneer, but not necessarily.
