Shared & Dedicated Warehousing

This solution is at once reliable, cost-efficient and flexible, enabling you to reduce the risk of variable demand by turning fixed assets into cash and turning fixed costs into variable costs.
  • Improving control and reactivity
  • Increasing service levels
  • Reducing risk, costs and capex
Solution
Keeping inventory is supposed to reduce risk. But investing capital in warehouses of fixed space and location leaves you exposed to demand and market volatility. Leading supply chain managers are now adapting by opting for a mix of shared and dedicated warehousing – a solution at once reliable, cost-efficient and flexible. With greater visibility and reactivity, the warehousing function can be transformed from a fixed asset into the strategic cornerstone of a more agile supply chain.
