Supply chain network development

Your network provides added value for your customers. Therefore we support you work to strengthen this network, focusing on two areas:

  • Warehouse Location. Your warehouse location highly impacts your cut off windows and delivery lead times. In case of international shipments, we highly recommend a warehouse location with swift access to a major, international hub, like a gateway mainport or a main express hub. We can provide support in selecting the best location for your warehouse. Based upon our expertise and our advanced optimization software (AIMMS and PTV SMARTOUR) we develop optimized supply chain networks. Your benefits are cost reduction, improved lead times and inventory availability providing an improved competitive edge.
  • Transportation Including Multi Modal Networks. Your transportation network serves your customers existing and forecast needs as well as provides them new opportunities. From multimodal solutions for container- and bulk shipments to local parcel distribution, we provide support in developing the most effective and efficient distribution networks. Our solutions are based on updated benchmark information, innovative software and many years of hands-on experience.

We provide the full menu, varying from concept design to a turnkey facility and are accustomed to teaming with (local) partners, architects and / or engineering companies.

Our starting point is always functionality; concept first, hardware follows. The level of mechanization and its architecture results from balancing  a sound operational concept and budget requirements. Our objectivity providing independent expertise, i.e, not allied to any hardware provider, will prove its value to you. In addition to functionality our design will provide you long term flexibility. We keep focus on ensuring the financial feasibility of the investment. When required, we can help you finding external investors based on a fully underwritten, i.e., bankable business plan and investment prospectus.
