A manufacturer of industrial goods needed to re-allocate products, work content and technologies within its key manufacturing site as a result of changes in the manufacturing footprint.
To cope with new requirements towards material flow and warehouse space under restrictions of a diverse product portfolio, we redesigned the setup of internal plant logistics with our client.
The developed concept not only reflected the needs of the future manufacturing site but also leveraged digitalization potentials such as automated goods receiving and latest generation warehouse management systems. According to client requirements, the new setup delivered a doubled storage capacity to consolidate external warehouses and still accounted for a potential reduction of 11% in warehouse costs along with a decline of 19% in internal transportation efforts.
