Layout planning

Logistics is the measurable implementation of a delivery promise, all the more so in dynamic markets and in environments characterised by highly fluctuating demand. Therefore, only the choice of the optimum logistics system will ensure optimum results. Each system should be selected in sync with your specific logistics needs so as to yield the best economic benefit.

This applies both to the implementation of new logistics sites and to the reorganisation of existing plants and facilities. Whatever your project may be, the choice of the appropriate technological system will greatly determine the smoothness and efficiency of logistic performance. The range of available systems covers the following logistics areas and functions:

  • Receipt and booking of incoming deliveries
  • In-house transport of goods / materials handling
  • Warehousing
  • Order picking and assembly (VAS) of goods
  • Consignment grouping

The ever-growing multitude and diversity of suppliers in the field of logistics-related components and systems makes the right choice even more difficult to find. The number of possible solutions and their combinations is practically endless so that specialists are in high demand to guide practitioners through the often confusing technology maze. Thanks to our many years of experience in the field of logistics, we are up-to-date with the entire supplier landscape; we are also familiar with the specific characteristics (strengths and weaknesses) of supplier products and solutions.

As an independent enterprise, we are not committed to anyone but our clients. Since we operate in their best interest by focussing on their specific needs and requirements, we always take a neutral stance to manufacturers and suppliers. We evaluate shortlisted systems both in terms of dynamic performance requirements and in light of economic criteria, which also encompasses an analytical determination of the required degree of system automation. In this context, we also consider investment costs and the costs associated with actual operation of the shortlisted systems. If you entrust us with your project, we will help you avoid unpleasant surprises!
