Recent years have seen a change in the requirements for the warehouse and its function. Much more than just a place to store goods, today’s warehouse is a service hub that fulfills a number of functions pivotal to the company’s day-to-day operations. By streamlining warehouse logistics we help you secure optimum utilization of resources to achieve efficiency gains and improve your bottom line.

LOGIA gives us assurance and improve quality throughout our processes – and it has a simple, easy-to-use interface.

Our focus in warehouse and logistics

“At Logimatic we have a distinctive approach to and expertise in warehouse logistics that is highly effective and delivers demonstrable value to our customers.

When we started working with warehouse logistics we initially focused on automation solutions for automated warehouses. Since then we have extended our focus to also include management and optimization of manual warehouse processes, and our turnkey solutions manage the entire chain of logistics, including production and distribution.

At Logimatic we take a practical, hands-on approach. And thanks to our more than 30 years of experience in the industry, we know what works and what does not. In short: We can ensure the best and most efficient management of your warehouse processes.”

Karsten Bangshaab

We work with warehouses in all industries, but the majority of our clients are within these industries:

  • Food
  • Medical
  • Offshore

The food, medical and offshore industries depend highly on precise item control. Therefore, our solutions take factors such as shelf life, batch number, serial number, certificate management and traceability into account.

Working with a vast array of companies across industries we have developed an extensive know-how that enables us to offer high-quality consultancy services and reliable software solutions. Moreover, the diversity of our clients is a testament to our broad expertise across industries, which we integrate into each solution. At Logimatic we view our clients as business partners based on our strong belief that we can achieve much more when we work together.

Your company’s need for management depends on your warehouse type. We are used to working with all warehouse types, which can be categorized into the following groups:

  • Wholesale/distribution
  • Production
  • E-commerce
  • 3PL warehouse

Each warehouse type has its own characteristics and requirements in terms of management. Seen in isolation, the overall warehouse types can be characterized as follows:

 

Wholesale/distribution

Wholesale warehouses are characterized by a low profit margin, a need for low handling costs and maximum utilization of capacity, short time slots and high variation in turnover rate.

 

Production

Warehouses within the production category can be further categorized into:

  • Raw material
  • Semi-finished goods
  • Finished goods
  • Spare parts

Coordination between production and warehouse is vital to optimum flow and efficiency. Goods for production orders need to be accessible at the production cells just before production starts; preferably not too long before and certainly not later. Goods delivered before take up unnecessary space in the production area and can get in the way. Goods that are delivered too late result in poor capacity utilization. After the production process, the manufactured items (semi-finished/finished products) need to be moved on to the next process in line, moved to the warehouse or to be packed and shipped. They must not take up space in the production area.

 

E-commerce

E-commerce warehousing is characterized by ultra-short time slots and the handling of many small orders and returns.

 

3PL / Third-party logistics

In 3PL/Third-party logistics, flexibility is vital in order to handle reversible investments, settlements based on used storage capacity and number of dispatches and not least the various shifting needs of a potentially large group of different clients.

When it comes to warehouses, it is not “one size fits all”. Rather, the warehouse layout should reflect the company’s individual needs. Moreover, these needs are bound to change over time, which requires scalable and flexible solutions.

There are countless ways to adapt and streamline a manual warehouse. It often pays off to automate specific sections of the warehouse – e.g. by means of storage and retrieval system, conveyor systems, mini loads and vertical lifts. Even in smaller spaces, automated equipment can generate a high return of investment (ROI).

When installing automated equipment in an existing warehouse it is vital to ensure a good integration between the manual and the automated parts of the warehouse to ensure optimum flow.

In the other end of the scale is the fullyautomated warehouse, but even these typically include some manual elements, as there are almost always items that are not suited for automatic handling equipment. Regardless of the degree of automation, optimum integration and load balance between components is paramount.

At Logimatic we are committed to staying up to speed on industry dynamics, and we continue to develop our expertise through our close cooperation with Aalborg University and our business partners.

In addition, we are active members of the following industry networks, which you are also more than welcome to join:

  • IndustriAlliancen – a network that aims to optimize production processes throughout the entire value chain through the implementation of new technologies. Read more at dk-export.dk/netvaerk/industrial-alliance
