Winning strategies, already proven in the manufacturing arena, are increasingly being used in warehousing and distribution operations. DHL can offer you a variety of automated systems within its warehouse offering, all of which are designed to bring significant efficiencies to your operations.
For instance, carousels and automated retrieval systems, although involving relatively high investment costs, can deliver higher efficiency and shorter cycles. The most common example of the carousel's application is in electrical spare parts and kit assemblies.
Both our customers and our operational people are responding very positively towards this new way of working, because the techniques generate real value.
From planning, sourcing, production, storage, configuration and delivery to after-sales, our customers can rely on us to provide robust solutions that work for any industry, in any environment, no matter how demanding.
Before proposing a solution, our approach is to understand your underlying business issues and needs.
By working closely with you across all disciplines, we jointly design a holistic supply chain solution that creates real value for your business.
Through our DePICT project management methodology, we then ensure that the design is implemented on time and to budget, and becomes an operational reality. Process improvement is a constant at DHL, because the changing business environment means that there is no such thing as a one-time solution.
