Akela provides a sovereign owned, Australian based Commercial Services and 4th Party Logistics (4PL) Service to domestic and international clients operating in Government and private sector supply chains, as well as frontier and emerging markets.
Akela will ensure your commercial and operational activities effectively align with your business requirements and strategic objectives through our tailored and out-of-the-box solutions.
Akela can help align and manage your supply and supplier capabilities with your business strategy and develop mutually beneficial relationships with your suppliers. We can also help enable you to control costs, drive service excellence, and mitigate risks to gain increased value from your vendors.
This is a marathon and not a sprint. Akela conducts a deep dive into your operations to determine your business requirements and customer expectations for shorter lead times and more responsive services (known as the Amazon Effect).
Akela integrates vast amounts of data from multiple sources in our supply chain management system to provide near real-time visibility of your end-to-end supply chain - from factory, through distribution, to arrival at the customer.
Akela provides tiered levels of fully customisable and integrated logistics management and operational solutions. We achieve this through our global network of 3PLs, forwarders, brokers, agents, and specialist logistics service providers.
