Silver Jubilee of Miebach in Brazil

Brazil, 01 June 2021

Silver Jubilee of Miebach in Brazil

25 years ago Miebach Consulting made an important decision to start operations in Brazil. At that time, the company had identified the importance of being present in Latin America and, shortly after opening the office in Buenos Aires, started to implement our unit in Brazil. It was the beginning of a great expansion movement in the American continent, which continued with the opening of our units in several other countries, from Chile to Mexico.

The challenge in Brazil was huge: to present innovative solutions and bring our international experience in optimization and automation to a vast market and not fully familiar with the concepts of modern logistics. We started by carrying out projects for our global clients with facilities in the country and, over time, we developed a very important regional and local client portfolio for the group.

We grew along with the market, incorporating disciplines to the Miebach scope of business that until then were not so significant, such as, to consider the complexity of the tax composition in network design studies, as well as specific tax benefits in certain cases. More than that, new variables have become part of the technical environment, like all political instability and unique characteristics of the Latin world, hardly comparable to European standards.

Nowadays, with more than 300 projects carried out in Brazil for more than 220 customers in the most diverse segments of the industry, we understand that our challenges are still wide. We are becoming more and more global, but at the same time even more local and regional. We offer more advanced and digital services, but we are increasingly expertise in the most traditional concepts and technologies.

Allied to our strategic partners, we are able to offer end-to-end solutions, from the definition of the strategy to approach the market, to the real estate aspects of the implementation, going through all the logistics disciplines, taxes implications and systemic and digital aspects.

Finally, our success was only possible through the trust of our customers in the technical capacity of our team. We thank everyone who has made our vision into a reality. Our way of giving back is to be always ahead of the logistics challenges, bringing solutions and logistics excellence to guarantee the success of our customers.

Logistics center for PUMA creates maximum speed and efficiency

Germany, 28 April 2021

Logistics center for PUMA creates maximum speed and efficiency

On 6 April, the sports company PUMA opened operations in its new highly automated logistics center in Geiselwind to speed up deliveries to wholesale customers, end consumers as well as to their own stores, and thus achieves a clear competitive advantage. Miebach Consulting supported PUMA in the tendering and awarding process following the initial concept review with simulation. Furthermore, Miebach Consulting aided in the realization phase as co-project manager for the sub-projects of intralogistics, testing, and real estate.

The adjustment of the logistics structure was necessary in order to best meet the changing market requirements for fulfillment in online marketplaces, direct deliveries, and achieving faster throughput times. The new European distribution center, which is part of PUMA's logistics modernization strategy, supports the company's overall growth targets.

Despite COVID-19 constraints, the highly automated logistics center was completed without delays and within budget. With innovative goods-to-person order picking workstations, a high-performance shuttle system with more than 700,000 bin locations, as well as around 22 kilometers of connecting conveyor technology and a total storage and handling area of 63,000m², the new location represents the flagship facility within the PUMA logistics network.

From April 2021 onwards, PUMA will supply the German, Austrian, and Swiss wholesalers with goods from the logistics center, followed by the supply of the brick and mortar business and e-commerce. In total, up to 74 million sporting goods items will be shipped annually to the company's own shops, end customers, and resellers.

By integrating the new logistics center into the supply chain network, PUMA will be able to optimize the productivity of the overall supply chain. In addition, the logistics space has the potential to be expanded in the future, giving the fashion and lifestyle company a high degree of flexibility to respond to challenging market demands and requirements.

Maximilian Molkenthin Senior Head of Logistics, PUMA says: "The new logistics centre ensures our excellent multi-channel capability and high delivery speed. From the end customer order with the smallest order item to the extensive wholesale order in the B2B sector, we can respond to our customers' wishes as quickly as possible."

"Corona is accelerating the e-commerce growth which requires high performance in logistics. The new logistics center excellently fulfills this requirement and meets the customers' expectations for high service and fast delivery. The high-performance facility enables an order-to-delivery process of only two hours and thus sets new standards in customer delivery" - says Michael Greschke, Head of Industry Fashion & Lifestyle, Miebach Consulting.

The logistics center in Geiselwind also establishes new standards in sustainability. The building is supplied with green electricity and a photovoltaic system. Rainwater is recycled via a utilisation system and honey bees will be kept on the 14,000 m² green roof in the future. The building was also designed to meet the LEED Gold standard, which is awarded to particularly sustainable construction projects.

About PUMA

PUMA is one of the world's leading Sports Brands, designing, developing, selling and marketing footwear, apparel and accessories. For 70 years, PUMA has relentlessly pushed sport and culture forward by creating fast products for the world's fastest athletes.

Germany, 15 April 2021

Miebach launches new edition of global survey on consumer goods supply chain trends

Miebach Consulting has launched an update of its international survey regarding the most relevant challenges and trends for the supply chain for the consumer goods industries. The previous edition was focused on digitalization, IoT, robotics and big data, and today Miebach wants to assess the situation for this sector after the impact of the global crisis generated by COVID-19.

Supply chains around the globe have been put under extreme pressure over the past year due to the global health and economic crisis and as a result of the pandemic and other megatrends such as climate change, resource scarcity, urbanization and e-commerce, have found themselves at the forefront of many companies' business models.

According to Pank Bedaux, Partner & global expert for the consumer goods industry at Miebach Consulting, "Undoubtedly, COVID-19 has forced companies to rethink and redesign their supply chains. But are these changes here to stay or are they temporary? With this study we would like to show the relevant trigger points for companies due to present and future changes in the market and point out which concepts could be enabler towards an agile, resilient, but still efficient and more transparent and sustainable supply chain today and in future. Your participation in this initiative is very much appreciated.”

To gain a holistic and significant industry overview, logistics and supply chain managers in consumer goods companies are invited to take part in this survey. Completion will take less than 10 minutes.

Link to the survey: https://2021-fmcg-trend-report-miebach.questionpro.eu

The study results with the latest consumer goods supply chain insights will be shared with the participants that request it at the end of the survey.
