Go Supply Chain was engaged in a warehouse optimisation project with a client who is a leading manufacturer of multi-industry equipment. The client is a large manufacturing company focused on the production and supply of highly engineered equipment for a range of industries, with a global presence in over 150 countries.
This warehouse optimisation project aimed to provide a solution to improve the facility’s operations and storage management by implementing building modifications and layout changes in order to create additional space for stock, to increase productivity and therefore as a result reduce unit costs. Go Supply Chain’s warehouse consultancy team was closely engaged with the client’s operational team to ensure that existing warehouse operations were fully understood and that provided recommendations for utilisation of the warehouse site layout were realistic and evidence based.
The Go Supply Chain consulting team offered the solution in the form of CAD layouts with better utilisation of space and stock storage, implementation costs, improved productivity through better processes in the following areas:
The business data provided by the client enabled our team to prepare a solid warehouse plan that aimed to migrate the stock from multiple and less efficient facilities in several countries into one consolidated more cost effective campus facility. The development of an evidence based data driven plan allowed us to work with the client’s management team to allow key decisions to be made quickly and with confidence. Moving a warehouse facility can provide significant risks to customer service in any business and a robust plan driven by real business information is the key to minimising this risk and delivering on time. Contact one of our expert warehouse consultants to talk through the development and execution of a plan for your next warehouse move.
