Logistics planning goals are universal: an ideal balance between a high delivery performance, reliability, flexibility and scalability on the one hand and the lowest possible stock levels, minimal transportation and handling costs and a high level of economic efficiency on the other hand.
Planning a warehouse is far more than simply drawing a rack or a conveyor onto a footprint. Planning is about providing your company with an optimized warehousing solution that smoothly fits into your overall logistics processes and meets all the special requirements of your industry, your products and your distribution structure.
Planning & Optimizing the Material Flow Process
Planning new material flows or optimizing existing ones should in theory not be difficult. It is usually obvious which steps have to be taken and which areas have to be scrutinized, and what the key external and internal influencing factors are.
We support you in planning and implementing the optimum logistics distribution system. We determine external framework conditions and compare your company’s current performance indicators and values with the benchmarks from your industry. We develop in close cooperation with your company fundamental warehousing and site strategies and determine long term perspectives.
Outsourcing is one of the most basic ”make or buy“ decisions a business has to make. On the one hand, this focuses the business on its core activities, helps to reduce capital spending, increases flexibility and reduces personnel expenditure. On the other hand, the business becomes dependant on the service provider which is reflected in the interfaces and structures that are created to support the relationship. Furthermore, from the outside the contractor’s performance whether positive or negative is always associated with the customer.
Logistics Fulfillment & Contract Logistics
As a fulfilment provider, you face the challenge of balancing different demands and requirements. The greater your range of services, the higher your profit margins, the more probable a long-term customer relationship, the smaller the number of interfaces which potentially could affect a smooth performance. Thus you must strive to achieve a broad scope of services and to fulfil the demands and requirements of your customers.
Supply Chain Consulting & Supply Chain Management
Decreasing stock turns, delivery times that do not meet the target benchmarks and growing freight charges are indicators that it is time for an in-depth analysis of the supply chain strategy and structure. Reducing storage costs, achieving high capacities and reducing stock volumes as well as establishing a transparent and flexible system are crucial. This must apply to the overall structure, individual sites and all interfaces.
Optimization of Logistics Processes
Experience gained in a multitude of projects provides us with an objective view and a feel for where the pinch points in your operation are and what the potential for improvement is. We are aware of the different factors that have to be taken into account when considering how to achieve a real improvement, from the requirements of an individual distribution system, to achieving a synergy between different technologies and finally designing the optimum logistics process.
Production plants present particular challenges to associated logistics and storage processes: material flow, stock keeping and access times must be aligned exactly to ensure a flexible response to changing demands, to a reduction in handling costs, a faster throughput and shorter delivery times. You know far better than us your production methods. We have a role to play when you wish to optimize your raw material supply, reduce processing times and avoid a reduction in production performance through unnecessary logistic processes.
ERP & Warehouse Management Systems
The IT system is at the heart of your logistics operation. Without a trouble free interaction between ERP, WMS and the MFC, no smooth performance can be achieved.
Replacement & Spare Parts Logistics
Spare parts logistics, for both suppliers and users of spare parts, is increasing in importance in providing a competitive advantage.
