One of the largest drugstore chains on the continent had grown dramatically and their central distribution center was no longer sufficient. Miebach Consulting was asked to optimize their distribution network. It was important to take into account the number and location of distribution centers in the region, and prepare a concept for a central warehouse extension. Regarding quantitative and qualitative criteria, three variants of central warehouses with different levels of automation were designed.
Analysis of different variants of distribution network structures
Network cost analysis and sensitivity analysis regarding future growth
Concept planning with different variants to extend the central warehouse
Optimized distribution network for further drugstore network extension
Sustainable extension concept of central DC
Increased productivity of processes by 100% doubled throughput
