Personalized consulting for your business.

Warehouse design consultancy is an essential aspect of logistics management. Efficiently designed warehouses and distribution centers can significantly reduce operating costs and enhance service levels, whereas poorly planned layouts can lead to inefficiencies and increased expenses. Our team is dedicated to optimizing your warehouse’s efficiency, ensuring that your logistics operations are streamlined and cost-effective.

Professional warehouse design is critical

Designing new buildings or reconfiguring existing facilities requires significant capital investment. This is especially true when updating storage media and modifying material handling systems. Given these costs, and the need for facilities to remain effective long-term to meet ROI demands, careful planning of warehouse and distribution center layouts is crucial.

However, the physical layout is just one component of an optimized design. It is equally important to scrutinize every process within the warehouse to minimize cycle times and reduce touch points throughout the operation. Our warehouse design consultants bring a wealth of technical and operational expertise, ensuring that our clients’ warehouses operate at the highest efficiency and meet required service levels, all while minimizing costs.

Warehouse design consultants drive improved performance

Our warehouse consultants possess extensive experience in both designing new facilities and optimizing space within existing warehouses. They have successfully managed projects ranging from the design and implementation of sprawling 650,000 sq ft distribution centers to enhancing space utilization and throughput in more compact 10,000 sq ft facilities. This breadth of experience enables our team to inject efficiency into various types of warehouse operations.

In any logistics operation, the size of the warehouse, its layout, the handling equipment used, and the operating processes implemented are critical factors that influence both cost efficiency and service performance. Our focus is on optimizing these elements to ensure that your company can deliver exceptional service to its customers at the most competitive cost-to-market.


The inventory balancing act

Inventory management is the art of striking the perfect balance between minimizing inventory costs and maximizing product availability. Businesses hold inventory for several reasons, with one of the primary purposes being to maintain a continuous supply even when there are discrepancies between demand and supply rates, a concept known as the decoupling point. This strategic buffer allows businesses to operate smoothly and meet customer demand without interruption, thereby optimizing both service quality and operational efficiency.

Optimize service and reduce costs.

Certainly, there are additional reasons to hold inventory, such as mitigating seasonal production fluctuations, accommodating unexpected demand, and capitalizing on bulk purchase discounts. Regardless of the motivation for maintaining stock, the core principle of inventory management remains consistent: to balance the amount of inventory held with the required service level. Fundamentally, since inventory incurs costs, it should be minimized as much as possible to optimize financial efficiency.

Expert inventory consultants

Inventory management is indeed a scientific discipline, yet many businesses still rely on heuristic methods to set inventory targets, such as holding a certain number of weeks’ worth of average supply or maintaining arbitrary “just in case” stock levels.

We bring extensive experience in inventory management, encompassing demand forecasting, aligning inventory policies, and making decisions about stock location, handling, and storage. We assist our clients in determining the optimal inventory levels for their operations and guide them on how to store, retrieve, and replenish stock in the most cost-effective and service-efficient manner possible. This strategic approach ensures that inventory management not only meets business needs but also enhances overall operational efficiency.

Minimize waste, maximize profit.

Warehouse operations management requires a systematic and process driven approach to maintain order and efficiency within a warehouse or distribution centre. Well designed operational processes can improve profitability, reduce waste and facilitate improved management of variability.

Process driven warehousing

In warehouse operations management, the emphasis on improving operational processes centers on the efficiency of material movement and the effective utilization of resources, including personnel, handling equipment, and facilities. It’s crucial to balance these elements with the service level requirements to ensure optimal performance. Continuous monitoring and enhancement of efficiency are essential strategies for managing costs and delivering the required service. By regularly assessing and refining these processes, warehouses can achieve greater operational excellence and meet both current and future demands efficiently.

Analytical rigor and practical application

Developing efficient operating processes necessitates a blend of fact-based analysis and a pragmatic understanding of business constraints. While there are various methodologies like Kaizen, Six Sigma, and Total Quality Management (TQM), all share a core emphasis on being organized, methodical, and efficient.

Our warehouse consultants are adept at assessing processes using these diverse methodologies and bring extensive practical knowledge from hands-on management of logistics operations. Their expertise is grounded in real-world experience, enabling them to tailor solutions that not only optimize processes but also align with the specific operational realities of each warehouse.
