Logistics planning 

We ensure a high degree of digitization in the automation of your logistics.

Optimization of the logistics processes

Ideal design and correct dimensioning

When planning logistics systems, the decisive course is set for long-term corporate development. The logistics of a company are opposed to the conflict of goals, on the one hand, to always deliver for the customer and, on the other, to function as cost-efficiently as possible.

To meet this challenge in the best possible way, you must optimize logistics processes and tailor a solution to the customer. The logistics system must be designed specifically for the company to work efficiently and flexibly without jeopardizing its own ability to deliver. 

At ifp consulting, we always understand logistics as a whole. When developing an overall concept, we pay particular attention to the fact that storage systems, conveyor technology, transport systems, and control technology are perfectly coordinated.

We focus on developing a tailor-made logistics system with the right degree of automation for our customers. Thanks to our many years of experience, our consultants know exactly which solutions are right for you and how they can be implemented with high economic efficiency. In addition, we have special expertise in the following areas:

Case study

New plant planning with a high degree of automation

ifp consulting supports an international group in the planning of its ultra-modern and innovative production facility. The goal when designing the logistics was to develop a logistics system that, thanks to automated logistics, optimized processes and a high degree of digitization, can meet the high demands of manufacturing, assembly and the spare parts business. The heart of the logistics is a central warehouse consisting of an automated high-bay warehouse with almost 12,000 storage spaces and an automated small parts warehouse with 25,000 storage spaces. In addition, around 24,000 km of automated material transport will be implemented within intralogistics by using state-of-the-art logistics systems at the planned location.

Success factors

At ifp consulting, we will analyze your situation and support you in developing the right logistics concept for you. We know that the ideal design of logistics processes, the correct dimensioning of storage areas, and the optimization of personnel and space costs play a central role in a company’s success.

What are the causes of changes in logistics? 

The reasons for re-planning a warehouse can be different. For example, the growth in recent years has meant that storage capacities are no longer sufficient, and expansion and automation are pending. Changing customer requirements have resulted in the logistics processes no longer being a perfect fit for the company. Or there may simply be a need to reduce costs in the warehouse.
