Sinking lot sizes and increasing production costs within the D/A/CH-region (Germany, Austria, Switzerland) are just two issues currently challenging consumer goods manufacturers. And you do not just have to deal with B2B business partners but also with end-customers expecting fast and reliable deliveries within 24 hours. Individualized products and challenges of a mass production up to lot size 1 make an efficient production more difficult and require an increased value chain agility.
This means, your business will be compared to giants like Amazon since customers do expect the same service. Leaving you with the task to offer short delivery times on the one hand and to open up to concepts such as multi-channel-distribution on the other hand.
Our expertise is your advantage
Progressive automatization would be one starting point in how to face these trends. Automated warehouses enable you to reduce throughput times and to significantly accelerate your shipments. Another step towards this would be the general optimization of distribution- and transportation logistics. Basis for all that are IT systems, making your processes more projectable, controllable and transparent. Due to the complexity of challenges facing your business, you will need a partner deeply familiar with the manufacturing industry and the retailing sector to integrate these systems successfully.
Many enterprises of this branch are not yet accustomed to the climate of the B2B world – a great amount of potential is still to be unleashed. In order to be successful within this area, you have to be aware of customer requests and desires.
