It plans to use Total Logistics’ supply chain and logistics strengths to support clients in the retail and consumer goods industries. Over time, it wants to extend Total Logistics’ capabilities to other industries, including life sciences, automotive and industrial equipment.
Lucy Larkin, managing director in Accenture’s Retail practice in the UK, said: “The acquisition of Total Logistics ensures that we are well-equipped to help our clients achieve better business outcomes from their digital transformation programmes.”
Andy Keith, managing director of Total Logistics, said: “As part of Accenture, with its broad industry skills and global reach, we will be able to help clients transform their businesses and make sure they are prepared to better serve their customers both now and in the future.”
Total Logistics is the second acquisition that Accenture has made recently in the UK to strengthen its retail and consumer goods capabilities. In June, the company acquired Javelin Group, a UK-based retail strategy consulting and digital transformation services provider.
