Accenture acquires Total Logistics

US-based technology and outsourcing consultancy Accenture has acquired UK-based logistics and supply chain consultancy Total Logistics for an undisclosed sum.

The deal aims to strengthen Accenture’s supply chain capabilities - particularly for the retail and consumer goods industries - to provide customers with interactive shopping experiences on multiple devices.  

“Consumers’ expectations to shop using any channel they choose and still get fast and reliable delivery poses logistical and financial challenges for retailers,” said Lucy Larkin, managing director in Accenture’s Retail practice in the UK. 

“In this environment, it becomes critical for retailers to transform their supply chain models to enable a more real-time, digitally enabled service. The acquisition of Total Logistics ensures that we are well-equipped to help our clients achieve better business outcomes from their digital transformation programmes.”

Wokingham-based Total Logistics is the second acquisition Accenture has made recently in the UK to strengthen its retail and consumer goods capabilities. In June, the company acquired retail strategy consulting and digital transformation services provider Javelin Group.
