Make the right strategic decisions — we accompany you in the process
The optimal alignment of the logistics strategy is essential for companies to be competitive. To be able to define a profitable and future-oriented logistics strategy, an analysis of the entire logistics is necessary. Answer strategic questions. Where does your logistics stand today, where do you want to go in order to position your company more successfully on the market in the future or to secure your market position in the long term? How can the development of markets be promoted through structures? Which requirements for location network structures are needed for your own logistics strategy? Can services that are not part of your core business be outsourced? In order to define a logistics strategy, it is essential to determine and evaluate cost drivers and impacts in advance. Together with you, we define the future framework conditions and support you in developing, adapting or renewing your operational logistics strategy. In doing so, we take into account your requirements, logistical interrelationships, partner networks, suppliers and distributors as well as internal company departments. We plan your supply chain taking all characteristics into account.

A holistic view of your logistics is essential
Digitalisation is a strong driver of growth and is changing entire industries and business models. The focus of digitalisation is primarily on optimising existing processes, but the transformation of the market will require the new development of digital processes and offers in the future. Machines of all kinds, transport, warehouse and merchandise management systems communicate with each other so that only very little human intervention is required. The future will demand seamless management of global supply chains. This requires a “smart” supply chain that must be instrumented, networked and intelligent.

Regardless of whether your construction project starts on the “green field” or you want to convert or modernise your factory or warehouse, the “right” strategy must be well thought out in advance. We support you in your project. Whether for new construction planning, conversion planning, warehouse modernisation and plant structure planning — as logistics consultants with years of experience in the sector, we are your contact. In the area of plant modernisation / retrofitting, there is an increasing focus on the integral networking of automation technology. In the case of plant modernisations, in which the networking of various warehouse technologies is an essential part of the project, the challenge lies in particular in carrying out the modernisation project during ongoing operation. This means that the system modernisation is carried out parallel to the regular daily business of the respective companies.
