Warehouses are an important part of any supply chain but they are often costly in terms of money and time because the processes in and around the warehouses constantly need to be optimised. In addition to this, volatile markets and shorter and shorter contract lengths are increasing the demands on logistics. Everyone wants concepts that are efficient and sustainable.
For decades now, German manufacturing companies have been practicing lean manufacturing – an approach that Toyota originated. This approach can also be used in the warehouse: the use of lean methods and tools within intralogistics supports the continuous improvement process and helps make the processes in the warehouse more efficient.
The Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics IML team will help you every step of the way when you implement this process. We make it possible for you to optimize the performance, quality, and costs of your warehouse and take a significant step towards ensuring the long-term competitiveness and success of your company.
