  • A benchmark is performed for each CPU and sales channel. 
  • Analyses of warehouse operations to identify potential areas for improvement.

Benefits

  • Clear understanding of fixed and variable costs by activity and sales channel.
  • Clear understanding of the market conformity of the various cost components (including housing costs, personnel costs, cost for rturn handling etc.).
  • Clear understanding of potential process improve-ments to optimize warehouse space and efficiency.
  • Overview and evaluation of potential alternative (mechanized) solutions.
