Together we align your logistics strategy
The optimal alignment of the logistics strategy is essential for companies to be competitive. In order to determine a profitable and future-oriented logistics strategy, an analysis of the entire logistics is necessary.
Answer strategic questions. Where is your logistics 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 supported by 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 effects in advance.
Together with you, we define the future framework conditions and support you in the development, adjustment or renewal of your operational logistics strategy. In doing so, we take into account your requirements, logistical relationships, partner networks, suppliers and distributors as well as internal company departments. We plan your supply chain taking all characteristics into account.

Digitalisation of your logistics
Logistics is increasingly developing into an integrally networked unit. Machines of all kinds, transport, storage and merchandise management systems communicate with each other, so that only a very minor human intervention is required.
Taking into account innovative topics such as Industry 4.0, digitalization as well as Internet of Things, we create a future-oriented logistics strategy together with you as our customer under the aspect of Smart Factory.
Optimisation of your entire value chain
We advise you on the design, planning and control of the flow of goods and information along your entire supply chain
With regard to the design of your supply chain, we are primarily guided by the goals and the given possibilities of your company as well as the structures of your goods and merchandise. Your company’s goals define which products are offered in which markets and in which quality, as well as according to which distribution and sales concept this should be done. On the basis of these specifications, a supply chain can be designed with all the parties and instances involved at the respective locations and the corresponding logistics systems and a continuous, sustainable flow of information between the players can be realised.
