Our knowledge has been acquired over countless projects at companies with extensive logistics and distribution activities. As a result, we have solid domain knowledge within the areas of warehouse and logistics and within virtually all industries. We know what works, where it works, and how it works.

Digitalizing the warehouse

Many warehouses use traditional paper picking lists, which are printed from the ERP system. It is a time-consuming process, which is often characterized by administrative work, a lot of time spent searching for items in the warehouse, and picking errors. The traditional paper solutions can therefore advantageously be replaced with online warehouse management.

With LOGIA warehouse management everything is online. All warehouse employees are equipped with tablets, where they are simply and clearly presented with their work tasks and guided through the processes.

LOGIA automatically prioritizes and compiles orders in the most optimal order. This facilitates the work of the warehouse manager. The platform’s visual and intuitive user interface guides warehouse employees through the most optimal picking route in the warehouse and shows which items to pick, where they are located and the number. The simple instructions make it easy to understand and minimize the risk of errors.

Digitization of your warehouse is based on your current warehouse situation. You know your business best. We have the software, the expertise, and more than 30 years of experience. Working in close cooperation with you, we can achieve the best solution — a solution that is well anchored in your business and creates results.

Your warehouse situation

Optimizing your warehouse should be based on your current warehouse situation. Here, you must pay attention to issues such as:

Warehouse layout
Types of shelving used, location size variations, hallway widths, and dependencies among different warehouse areas.

Product characteristics
Weight, volume, fragility, and sales patterns.

Warehouse automation
What types of automation exist, how are they used today, how should they be managed in conjunction with the manual areas, and is the fill rate satisfactory?

Order combinations
What are the order combinations like, and what are the variations in order combinations over time?

Inventory check
What is the extent of inventory variances, and how much time is spent on inventory counting?

Process support
In what manner, and to what extent, are the current storage processes supported?

You may already see opportunities for improvement once you have gone over these points. They are important inputs for a more in-depth analysis of your warehouse.

Warehouse analysis

A warehouse analysis is based on your current warehouse setup and spots untapped potential. Furthermore, it is a starting point for prioritizing improvement measures and choosing applicable solutions.

We apply simple tools to map warehouse and production processes. Our analysis covers the warehouse and comprises:

  • Storage equipment, capacity, and use
  • ABC analysis
  • Warehouse strategy and management concepts
  • Picking, storage, and replenishment strategies
  • KPIs and performance management
  • Digitization
  • Automation of storage areas

  • We create a structure, provide an overview, and perform calculations. This gives you a good fact-based basis for decisions. We also provide advice and guidance on how to implement the recommended solutions.

    Is it worth the investment?

    We recommend making a return on investment (ROI) calculation that shows how much each change contributes and when the investment is expected to make its money back. This provides insights into which changes are worthwhile and whether the investment will pay off.

    The ROI analysis can be divided into different focus areas, such as employee efficiency, error rate, facilities, equipment, and transport costs.

    Employee efficiency
    Labor costs represent a large proportion of total storage costs. Therefore, it is important to evaluate the time spent on each warehouse process and assess whether tasks or handling can be improved or completely removed.

    Error rate
    Picking errors and other errors are a consequence of the quality of warehouse processes. Rectifying errors is associated with surprisingly high costs and a lack of earnings, due to dissatisfied customers.

    Facilities and equipment
    Storage facilities and equipment must be used to the best extent possible. What was optimal yesterday will not necessarily be the optimal setup tomorrow. This may relate to the warehouse layout, the locations of goods, and the management of locations to ensure the maximum filling rate.

    Transportation costs
    Transportation costs are partly beyond the control of warehouse management. However, in addition to negotiating transport agreements, costs can also be lowered through the consolidation of orders and better packaging solutions.

    The ROI calculation provides you with a better basis for assessing and prioritizing investments. At the same time, it provides greater knowledge of where to focus to realize the changes and gains on which the ROI is based.
