Planning logistical moves - start early!
Experience shows that the planning of logistical moves is often procrastinated, as moves are only scheduled at a late stage of the overall project. This can later prove to be a major risk, as logistical moves are complex projects that involve long lead times at many interfaces (for example, supplier orders with long delivery times, contracts with long terms that have to be terminated in good time, etc.).
A distinction must be made between pure relocation planning and startup management. In the case of start-up management, the interfaces to the stores and customers, as well as to the suppliers, are planned and implemented more precisely.
