International production networks and supply chains integrated with customers are already a reality at the leading consumer goods companies. However, they are subject to the dynamics of market changes, product adjustments and realignments of corporate strategy due to changed framework conditions.
The diversity of consumer goods reflects the diversity of the projects
In the consumer goods industry, our project experience is as varied as the customers and their products. Whether warehouse planning, factory planning, warehouse and transport outsourcing, supply chain-driven projects in procurement pooling or transport cooperations: the project experience of HPMlog is very broad here. Talk to us, we will explain the optimal procedure for your task.
Align international production and distribution networks with market conditions for consumer goods
By using tool-supported, mathematical optimization methodology, we determine the optimal locations for our customers, taking delivery costs and service level into account. From an economic point of view, this is a key driver in network optimization. For a holistic consideration and evaluation of the economic feasibility, however, an analysis of the potentials and restrictions in the given production and warehouse locations as well as the consideration of the process complexity are necessary.
HPMlog advises customers holistically. We not only use network tools, but also focus on the practical feasibility of the optimized networks in the processes and on the capacities of the network nodes. The planning of factories and warehouses is our traditional core competence.
New organizational structures require a new process landscape
Driven by site integration or the outsourcing of organizational units, responsibilities and processes are reorganized along the entire supply chain. Overarching IT structures are being introduced or rolled out. We accompany these projects in terms of content and also lead the necessary change management to a successful implementation.
