New customer for Sport & Lifestyle Logistics
Sports & Life Style Logistics
Swiss trading company is new customer
On 1 September 2016, the Grieshaber Logistics Group took over the logistics activities for a leading Swiss trading company. The manufacturer of high-quality textiles is served by our rapidly growing Sports & Lifestyle area of the Industry Solutions division.
The relevant goods arrive in containers from overseas at the Hochrhein Logistics Park in Rheinfelden. The containers are unloaded and this is followed by quality checks, unmixed palletising, storage, precise commissioning, packaging and subsequent delivery to trading partners, most of which are based in Europe.
Our customer’s and the Grieshaber Logistics Group’s IT departments have in-depth discussions to find a solution that involves working directly on the customer’s ERP system (Navision). This means that an extensive IT interface was not required and the warehouse was systematically considered as the customer’s external store. This gave Customer Service maximum transparency along the entire logistics chain. It also avoided high interface costs. The customer enters all orders in his system and these are then processed quickly by Grieshaber.
In addition to the high picking performance, quick project implementation was another significant challenge. The project team is currently working on optimising replenishment from the high bay to the picking places. Due to high seasonal fluctuations, flexible employee training and deployment was a key success factor.
