Comprehensive analysis of your logistics and preparation of a new logistics concept.

Ehrhardt + Partner Consulting is familiar with the range of possible uses and applications of all established and new technologies and trends, such as Logistics 4.0. Consultation and planning are always manufacturer-independent and neutral with a view to finding the most economically appropriate solution. For the customer, that means maximum transparency for the individual components of the system – whether material flow, storage technology or the degree of automation.

Planning new logistics systems.

Many factors comes into play when planning a new warehouse. It is important to identify them, to take a holistic view of all the factors and then balance them optimally in the future logistics system. Working with you, we identify the basic requirements for item storage, for the material and process flow in the warehouse, the information flows based on those two flows, and the external and limiting factors.

The most important basis for planning is the quantity structure. This involves taking a careful look at your stock and transaction data.

Once the rough planning and outline of your future warehouse is complete, detailed planning can begin. Detailed planning then involves preparing tender documents and the requirements for your warehouse, transport and IT systems. As an expert and independent partner, we are can coordinate and negotiate with suppliers on your behalf.

We are your one-stop solution provider.
