JLL and Miebach Con­sult­ing enter into stra­tegic busi­ness al­li­ance

Alliance mutually strengthens supply chain offering and end-to-end real estate solutions for clients

German-based international supply chain consulting and material flow engineering firm Miebach Consulting and global real estate professional services firm JLL announce that they have entered into a strategic business alliance. The alliance will integrate both firms' real estate, technology, sustainability supply chain and material flow expertise to deliver end-to-end strategy and execution services for clients in the logistics and production sector.

JLL and Miebach will deliver a holistic supply chain solution including the real estate financial element, offering customers and the market a joint value proposition helping them face the supply chain operational and financial challenges that have been exacerbated by Covid-19 pandemic. The alliance will also leverage technology to enable a data-driven decision-making process to pinpoint the right locations within the network and drive more flexible, efficient and customer-oriented supply chains. Companies will benefit from deeper insights of how factors such as automation, digitalization, building specification and global network optimization will shape the warehouse of the future.

The alliance comes at a time of heightened demand for supply chain services by businesses across the globe. Despite the reopening of many physical stores, the continued boom of e-commerce is putting supply chain management in the spotlight and accelerating the demand for logistics space globally.

Guy Gueirard, Head of JLL Supply Chain & Logistics Services, EMEA, added: "The link between supply chains and real estate is now more important than ever. The adoption of e-commerce accelerated by the disruption of brick-and-mortar retail at the height of the pandemic has strained global supply-chain networks. It has also highlighted the criticality of logistics and resilient supply chains for key sectors around the world.

This alliance is an important step forward in reinforcing our supply chain growth strategy, which will enable to offer clients more responsive, technology driven, flexible and sustainable solutions. Clients will benefit from the unique combination of Miebach's supply chain consulting and engineering experience and our established real estate expertise. We look forward to working together with Miebach as we develop and service a mutual client base in the future."

Jürgen Hess, CEO of Miebach Consulting, commented: "As omni-channel retail, e-commerce, automation and other drivers become stronger features in a fundamentally changing supply, production, distribution, and storage landscape, the ability to design and implement effective and dynamic supply chain networks that include adaptable real estate and facilities within flexible occupational portfolios, and which explore a range of financial options, will be an imperative for our clients.

The business alliance is centered around offering clients single source, end-to-end advice to enable them to accelerate business growth. Our clients operating internationally will benefit from an alliance that combines international scope with local knowledge."

MANGO receives CEL 2020 award in the company category

Spain, 21 January 2021

MANGO re­ceives CEL 2020 award in the com­pany cat­egory

On January the 13th, the winners of the CEL Awards for Logistics Excellence were announced and MANGO was awarded for developing a global supply chain in the fashion industry. MANGO has counted on the collaboration of Miebach Consulting for this development, specifically in the automation project of its logistics platform in Lliçà d'Amunt from the beginning and throughout the different phases of the project.

The prizes awarded by the Centro Español de Logística for the last 30 years recognize the greatest achievements of companies in the supply chain in Spain, regardless of the sector in which they operate, and constitute the highest recognition in the logistics field in our country. This year, exceptionally, the awards ceremony was held in a virtual format, bringing together the professionals of the Supply Chain around the most relevant and innovative projects related to logistics and the supply chain.

José Estrada, the Managing Director of CEL, was responsible for announcing that the CEL Award in the Company category went to MANGO. For his part, Antonio Pascual, Supply Chain Director of the fashion company, praised the vision, initiative and effort of the large number of professionals who form part of the innovative and entrepreneurial spirit that characterizes and forms part of Mango's DNA, stressing that this project has enabled the company to transform its logistics, improve its service to customers and move towards a more sustainable management model.

Summary of Miebach Consulting's services for MANGO

MANGO's logistics center, which covers an area of 190,000 square metres, incorporates the latest automation technologies for both folded and hanging garments, and is capable of managing 75,000 units per hour. From the center, the company supplies more than 2,100 points of sale around the world.

The hanging garment installation is one of the most automated in Europe, having an automated storage and picking system. On the other hand, the folded garment installation contains different innovative elements, among them an automatic box storage. Additionally, the order preparation system has automatic garment sorters and a man-picking system.

The facility also has a new warehouse management system which, linked to MANGO's corporate system, governs the entire facility in coordination with the automated systems.

MANGO was supported by Miebach Consulting, from the initial design to the commissioning of the facility, which was developed in stages, in a progressive manner. Miebach Consulting's services covered the definition of the automation requirements, the selection of the logistics integrators for both the automations and the Warehouse Management System, and the management of the implementation, including the detail projects, monitoring of the assembly and tests until its commissioning.

About MANGO

MANGO was founded in 1984 and is now one of the world's leading fashion groups. With its origins and headquarters in Barcelona, it has an extensive network of more than 800,000 m2 in more than 110 countries. From its Design Centre "El Hangar" in Palau-Solità i Plegamans, over 18,000 garments and accessories are designed every year in accordance with the trends of the season. The company closed 2017 with sales of 2,194 million euros. More information at www.mango.com.



Miebach study: Sustainability has arrived in supply chain management

Germany, 05 November 2020

Miebach study: Sus­tain­ab­il­ity has ar­rived in sup­ply chain man­age­ment

Even though the corona pandemic has pushed many future topics and plans into the background, companies are working on initiatives for greater sustainability. The results of the study suggest that a successful turnaround towards sustainability can be achieved if consumers first rethink and transform this new way of thinking into action and demand. 

Nevertheless, according to Thorsten Gensmer, Director, Miebach Consulting GmbH, companies should not sit back: "Those who think ahead now and lay the foundation for sustainable business activities can profit greatly from the newly developing market. Collective actions with a complete cradle-to-cradle approach are necessary for greater climate protection goals in the supply chain. The high level of planned initiatives shows that this can already be worthwhile now!

These are the results of the current sustainability study by Miebach Consulting. In mid-2020, the international supply chain consultancy examined which strategies and measures companies are taking to make supply chains sustainable - and to what extent sustainability and corporate goals can be combined.

277 companies took part in the global online study, including an unusually high proportion of managing directors (18%), which illustrates the importance and strategic significance of the topic.

The motivation for sustainability is tied to the idea of efficiency and cost reduction

With regard to the most recent and the next planned initiative, the majority of respondents cited an improvement in efficiency with an average of 14%, or a cost reduction with an average of 15% as motivation. This is followed by topics such as CO2 reduction (7%), green packaging or the reduction of plastics in general (7%). Sustainable measures based on ecological or social motivation, such as employee health and safety (1%) or environmental protection (1%), are rarely mentioned.

Sustainability in supply chain management is gaining in importance

The surveyed companies have implemented an average of 16 sustainability initiatives in their companies. For the future, however, the surveyed companies plan to almost double (+97%) the number of sustainable initiatives already implemented within the next few years. This suggests that sustainability in supply chain management will gain in importance.

High resource input and complexity discourage

In general, sustainable initiatives are considered less attractive if they require a high level of resource input, such as the development of reverse logistics, which is rated at just 4.2 out of 10 points. Even already complex topics, such as network planning, which is rated 4.6, are perceived as less important. Therefore, resource-saving and relatively simple measures are generally preferred.

The free report on the results of the Miebach study "Sustainable Supply Chain Management" is available and can be requested under this link.
