Network study of warehouse, transportation and packaging structures to improve delivery services and to optimise costs:

  • Collecting transport and warehouse data
  • Analysis of distribution structures
  • Modelling and evaluation of models 
  • Software based simulation of inbound and outbound transportation costs 
  • Approximated dimensioning of involved warehouses to estimate yearly cost for staff, building and equipment
  • Simulation of the transportation and warehouse costs in every simulation scenario
  • Network analysis 
  • Evaluation of the preferred model and ecological footprint
