Warehouse check – increase the degree of utilisation of your warehouse by up to 30%

Are you making optimum use of your storage capacity and space? With our warehouse check, you can find out. In a detailed analysis, we put all the key storage aspects under the microscope and reveal any potential for optimisation. You can then increase the degree of utilisation of your warehouse by up to 30%!

The challenge: historic warehouse, modern requirements

 

In many companies, the warehouse represents a huge block of costs. As most have been built up over time, their set-up often does not meet the requirements of modern storage technology. Space and capacity are not used to their full potential and products cannot be found quickly enough. This all results in high costs and delayed processes.

The warehouse check: analyse, identify, benefit

 

With the warehouse check, our specially trained logistics experts really put your storage facilities through their paces. They investigate if your warehouse is organised efficiently, makes effective use of its capacity and is up to date with the latest technology. Storage technology, picking and human resources are also taken into account, as are the items you stock.

Potential weaknesses are methodically identified, for example over-sized storage spaces or obsolete logistics concepts that do not work for the items you now stock. Using this information, you can optimise the degree of utilisation of your warehouse and enhance its cost-effectiveness. When it comes to reducing costs and increasing efficiency, there is huge potential in virtually every warehouse.
