Cargill is one of the largest agricultural companies in the world. In Deventer a chocolate factory is located.​

Cargill Deventer has executed a study in 2015 for a new site layout (brownfield). Cargill Deventer has requested Groenewout to review this study from 2015 mainly on storage capacities, internal flows, the outside truck movements and outside truck parking possibilities.​

To perform this review several steps were taken;​

  • Site visit in Deventer to discuss current and future flows and current and future (planned) layout;​
  • Collected and analyzed all relevant data and drawings regarding volumes and flows;​
  • Set up several outside layouts for discussion;​
  • Agreed on final outside layout and truck movements;​
  • Agreed on storage layout and detailed out needed equipment for tendering reasons;​
  • Set up final layout and capex for storage materials.​


  • Based on the different outside layouts Cargill had good insights in the best layout for truck movements and could adjust their building layout accordingly.​
  • Based on the storage materials analysis Cargill had a good insight in de final Capex and storage capacity.
