Welcome on your journey to become a Top Performance Warehouse

Every warehouse has the potential to become a Top Performance Warehouse, to efficiently answer changing customer needs. The warehouse can be a small private warehouse, a popular startup or a large logistics center. The Top Performance Warehouse concept results from development work done with our customers and it can bring intelligence to your warehouse in just 9 weeks.

Bring intelligence to your warehouse

A small backroom warehouse or a large logistics center – both have the potential to grow into a Top Performance Warehouse in which things happen at the right time and in the right order.

The solution is intelligence. Do more with less and only what has to be done. Intelligence also ensures that the warehouse contains the necessary amounts of the right things – nothing extra. The performance of an intelligent warehouse is 2.5-fold with the same staff, there are no more picking errors and the warehouse is 100% traceable, automatically.

Top Performance Warehouse is a journey. It is a unique system of functions and processes, with continuous development at its core. The journey to a Top Performance Warehouse begins with a Prestudy, in which we map out the current situation of the business, the challenges and bottlenecks and clarify the goal. Should we tackle balance accuracy, fill rate or facilities management first?

We fully utilize the experiences we have gained with other businesses and find the optimum solutions for you. After the Prestudy, we can see the possibilities and solution options based on data, not on gut feelings. Together we create the prerequisites for becoming a Top Performance Warehouse, which utilizes the best practices in the business and intelligently implements the most effective tools. Together we can reach the top.
