Site-selecting for medium-sized companies

Medium-sized companies rely on ifp consulting when selecting a site

ifp consulting currently assists two independent medium-sized companies of the construction supplier industry in selecting a suitable site. In addition to the long-lasting experience in production and logistics planning, two innovative tools are being employed: The ifp Regional Database and the industry solution IBM LogicNet Plus.

The tasks are challenging: In one case, a new distribution centre in Germany is sought, in the other case, a highly economic production site in Eastern Europe – both cases set high requirements for delivery times and reliability.

For the site selection in Eastern Europe, the ifp Regional Database helps in efficiently preselecting the solution space. At the same time, the local partner network in the target areas provide the necessary knowledge about customs of country and people. The methodology of ifp consulting is individually aligned with the requirements of the customer – ideal for medium-sized companies.

The approach for determining the site of the distribution centre follows the same idea: pragmatic, successful and smart. The site selection is carried out using IBM LogicNet Plus. This way, several thousand delivery addresses in Germany and neighbouring countries can be considered – no matter if dedicated, single-tier or two-tier customer supply.
