At Trym, our mission is to solve complex supply chain problems.
We combine the expertise and knowledge of supply chain consultants with the analytical and technical skills of data scientists to help your business make better informed decisions.

What we do
Cost to Serve Analysis
Calculate what it actually costs to serve customers, unlocking valuable insights and opportunities for improvement.
Use historical data to prototype and simulate different supply chain scenarios, improving performance and maximising capacity.
Growth without the growing pains. Scaling every element of your supply chain to meet growing customer demand.
The next best thing to a crystal ball? Demand planning. Analysing historic customer sales to forecast future demand.
In the face of uncertainty, statistics is vital to identifying the factors that most contribute to successful outcomes.
Supply Chain Sustainability
Rising numbers of conscious consumers are wanting to spend their money with companies doing good for the planet.
Can supply chain data & analysis help with your strategic business question?
I have warehouse automation that I don’t think is being used in the best way, how can I check?
Warehouse capacity modelling can help with this. A capacity model is a digital representation of your supply chain and is an inexpensive way of testing the impact of change.
It typically consists of 3 streams of analysis:
- 1. Mapping end-to-end supply chain processes and product flows.
- 2. Comparing automation capacities with forecast demand.
- 3. Identifying bottlenecks or ways to improve the flow of goods to maximise warehouse automation.
You may also want to use the capacity model to run “what-if” scenarios, for example: what products would be best held outside of my ASRS to generate more capacity at least cost?

How can I best prioritise cost-saving / improvement projects across my supply chain?
Calculating a cost-to-serve from supply data and activity rates helps align finance and supply chain functions and allows you to better prioritise improvement projects.

How can I better plan for our peak sales periods?
Warehouse capacity models can be used for testing different scenarios, it’s a digital representation of your supply chain which allows you to proactively plan and mitigate risks.
It’s a great way of stress-testing and running scenarios, for example, what would happen if the forecast growth of winter apparel is 10% higher than expected?

We are looking to / have recently acquired another business, how do we best integrate the supply chains?
Acquisitions can be a great catalyst to streamline processes and reduce overall costs.
Fully understanding both supply chain processes and product flows will be critical, a process mapping exercise can bring this to life.
We can help you build a flexible data model inclusive of processing rates, costs, and throughput capacities against each activity to compare integration options. Through modelling different scenarios it’s possible to gain a much deeper understanding of how existing supply chain infrastructure can integrate and support each other.

How can I reduce the amount of inventory I’m holding whilst maintaining service levels?
Depending on your product offering you may find insightful patterns in sales data that can improve demand forecasting and be a very valuable source of information in calculating how much inventory to hold.
We also offer inventory simulation to determine inventory levels calculated against demand uncertainties, supply inaccuracies, and business targeted service levels.
