Just musing over a present real-life scenario and would appreciate any

Assume a company distributes a product across a given region.  It currently
uses an external third party to carry out this task at a cost of, say, £10m
per year.

The company already has a transport arm but bringing the distribution
in-house would cost, say, £15m (the third party can undercut the in-house
operation by virtue of the fact that they already distribute a competitor's
products across the region, i.e they're basically piggy-backing us onto the
back of them).

As it stands, the £10m cost is paid to a third-party and is gone.  Whereas,
if the operation was brought in-house, even though the cost is higher, it
stays within the parent company.

What am I missing?
