Consultancy and co-management

Need extra support in the logistics management team? You can also call on our expertise for co-management or coaching of the management team.

Our approach

Unlike many other consultants, we do not start from a solution, but from the problem. In order to be able to do this, it is necessary to make a good analysis. So we start by listening to your story, your question. We observe the operation and listen and talk to the operators. This is followed by a full (data) analysis in order to arrive at a final solution and an implementation plan. We discuss this in detail with the management team and after the decision we are ready to implement with you and your team the necessary changes by carefully avoiding hurdles and pitfalls so that we can move straight to the goal in full cooperation with your teams. That is what we call co-management.

What can you contact us for?

Over the years, we have successfully completed numerous consulting projects. We did this for large and small companies, at home and abroad and in all kinds of sectors. So our logistics consultants have acquired a wide range of knowledge, which they are happy to share with you.

Our clients asked us for advice in various logistics sub-areas:

  • Design and organisation for conventional and mechanised warehouses

Logistics also play a major role in production. Correct production planning is therefore very important. You can come to us for advice:

Supply chain management

The needs of our customers are very diverse. Some need support in a specific domain, for others we take a broader approach to the project and take care of the entire supply chain. For them, we will optimise the entire supply chain step by step:

  • What are the components and objectives of my supply chain?
  • We make an analysis of stocks and warehouse management.
  • We map out the transport and distribution network and see where we can improve it.
  • We look at the typology and planning techniques of the production system.
  • In this way, we can analyse your organisation's entire supply chain and streamline it better.

Are the above areas of experience not fully in line with your needs?

You can also contact us for specific logistics software applications, an operational audit and all kinds of workshops.
