Logistics improvement program one year after ERP go-live

The customer is a leading supplier of tools and hardware supplies for the construction sector.

Customer need/ Project scope ​

The project’s scope was to:

Assess the efficiency of the customer’s existing internal logistics and purchase/call-off processes, and the way they interacted, in order to identify how to reduce stock and keep a consistently high fulfillment rate (service level).
Identify improvements in the internal logistics operation at the central warehouse.
Overall management of the supply chain department (logistics/purchase).
Recommend next steps, including a timeline for and organization of implementation.

Brief description of Akselera’s role, deliverables and results ​

We identified and validated opportunities for improvement related to ERP modification, process changes, reporting, and master data management. ​

​We designed a project plan to implement the various elements. The project was to be led by the new logistics manager, with coaching provided by Akselera. ​

​The logistics manager implemented the improvements, and as the revenue and assortment grew rapidly, Akselera was asked to undertake an evaluation and lead a selection project for warehouse automation – a project delivered to the customer’s full satisfaction.
