Oper­a­tional project management

We reliably plan, control and monitor your logistics project

Logistics projects are our core business

To ensure the eco­nomic success of a project, reliable project man­agement is essential — from ini­tial­ization, planning and imple­men­tation to com­pletion — we plan, coor­dinate and monitor your project pro­fes­sionally. Our trained project man­agers provide your project in every phase and take respon­si­bility for an eco­nomical and effi­cient project exe­cution — in time, quality and budget. 

Pro­ject­man­agement

we take over the com­plete project man­agement for your logistics project

We plan, coor­dinate and monitor logistics projects pro­fes­sionally and take respon­si­bility for the eco­nomic and effi­cient exe­cution. Expe­rience and com­pe­tence com­bined with proven project man­agement methods form the basis for this. We act in our projects both clas­si­cally and agilely! Within our organ­i­sation we have defined our own project man­agement and quality stan­dards. These include a uniform approach of our con­sul­tants and project man­agers in the organ­i­sation and control of projects / project exe­cution. The basis for this is classic project man­agement, based on the recog­nised PMP method­ology according to PMI. Depending on the project content and char­ac­ter­istics, and also at the customer’s request, agile project man­agement (Scrum, Six Sigma, etc.) is also available, which we implement in the same way as the classic method­ology. The com­bi­nation of both methods (hybrid approach) is also increas­ingly demanded within our projects. Talk to us. Together we will choose the optimal project man­agement method for you to implement your project effi­ciently and successfully. 
Project com­mu­ni­cation, organ­i­sation & control, schedule, risk & doc­ument man­agement as well as trans­parent time, cost and quality control are the basic pre­req­ui­sites for suc­cessful project man­agement. As a modern and practice-ori­ented logistics con­sul­tancy, we control and manage our projects dig­i­tally and provide our cus­tomers with per­manent and virtual access to all project-rel­evant data and doc­u­ments, thus ensuring maximum project transparency. 

Teamwork for success

A well-func­tioning team is the key to success. Defined project roles and hier­ar­chies, struc­tured recording of tasks and dis­tinctive com­mu­ni­ca­tions are the indi­cators that have a pos­itive effect on the success of the project. Our roles and func­tions in your project: 

MANDATE LEADER 

Our mandate manager is respon­sible for the com­mercial project man­agement. As a key account, he is the central contact person for you as the client for ques­tions regarding the offer and scope of delivery or addi­tional ser­vices. Within the scope of project imple­men­tation, he sup­ports our project manager and the project team with his tech­nical expertise. He ensures the quality of the project and the achievement of the project goal. 

PROJECT MANAGER 

Our project manager is respon­sible for the com­plete and suc­cessful exe­cution of your logistics project. He ensures that the project is com­pleted within cost, time and quality. This includes the inde­pendent man­agement of the entire project, including project planning and mon­i­toring, to-do, risk and stake­holder man­agement and project reporting. 

PROJECT TEAM 

For project support, we provide our cus­tomers with a qual­ified project team, depending on their needs. Our project team can take over oper­a­tional or admin­is­trative activ­ities within the main project or carry out indi­vidual sub-projects independently. 

Quality check in project management

Sus­tainable assurance of project success

In order to ensure the project quality in long terms, each of our projects undergoes a quality check. The quality check is an internal process con­sisting of various phases: 
Quality check in the project: During the project period, close and regular coor­di­nation within the project teams is important.. Fixed scheduled status meetings to balance the project’s progress and de-briefings after on-site visits, project work­shops or project meetings are part of our quality checks. 
Concept Quality Check: To con­tin­u­ously improve and ensure the quality of our concept doc­u­ments, we apply the dual control prin­ciple. Our account and project man­agers check the con­tents of the concept for the agreed amount of ser­vices and the defined goal. 
Cus­tomer quality check after project completion: The opinion of our cus­tomers is absolutely important to us. After suc­cessful com­pletion of the project, a per­sonal meeting between you and our account manager will take place in order to evaluate the entire project. 

Project man­agement has a leading role in every project

To ensure the eco­nom­i­cally success of a project, it is essential to have a reliable project man­agement — from ini­tial­ization and planning to imple­men­tation and final com­pletion. Our trained project man­agers support your project at every stage and take respon­si­bility for an eco­nomical and effi­cient project exe­cution — in time, quality and budget.
