It is not possible to develop all offers from Air France Cargo because it would be unreasonable to invest on all fronts regardless of the opportunities. The supply equation is more problematic. If the attractiveness of the sector is certain, even though it is a highly competitive market, AFC handles with a disability in relation to already established firms, both in terms of reputation and the portfolio.
In addition, an offer of differentiation seems difficult to build in the current market, and would seek investments that would be more productive in other areas. We adopt the same strategy as our competitors in a highly competitive market, where AFC suffers from a lack of awareness and would not be consistent either. We recommend abandoning this activity, unless we consider an external growth strategy during the acquisition of an established business in this area.
The positions proposed for each of the offers are as follows. Change: The best solution at the best price, with personalized care by competent teams regardless of any good to carry, the destination and the time. Dimension: An offer of standard shipping for unlimited volumes. Cohesion: A logistics solution tailored and comprehensive destination for companies operating in lean.
The strategy to adopt in respect of freight is to be studied in great detail. Indeed, an alliance strategy for a given offer might conflict with an offensive strategy on another offer. We must therefore harmonize these strategies to communicate a message not scrambled and not contradictory to the forwarders.
The strategies proposed by the group Change and Dimension are relatively compatible. To change the offer, a special partnership with a few freight forwarders that have the capacity to handle such goods allows the sharing of information and creating a climate of confidence in the framework of a winner-winner.
In addition, the Transportation extraordinary AFC found bargaining power. Regarding the offer size, it is to offer a bid that includes freight large volumes of shipping, service bundling and freight volume discounts to loyalty forwarders.
However, regarding the offer Cohesion, reversing the power to negotiate with forwarders can deteriorate relations with the forwarders AFC on its other offerings. In the short-circuiting, i.e. canvassing directly to force the client to act as forwarders subcontractor, it could be put back, and no longer work with them in harmony on the other offers, namely size and variation.
