Optimization of transport and warehousing processes

TransCare’s client is one of Europe’s leading manufactures of insulation materials. URSA supplies two products: glass wool and XPS (extruded polystyrene). The company owns 13 production sites in 9 different European countries and had substantial commercial activity in more than 20 countries. URSA realizes 450Mio. € sales per year.

 
 

Scope of the project

Integration of 2 companies with 13 sites in 26 European countries, design of a European logistic system and realization of synergy potentials.

 
 

Achievements

At first, TransCare analyzed all 13 plants in terms of the supply of raw material, packaging, stock rotation and distribution. Afterwards, a benchmarking of the transport and warehousing services was made. As result of this study, TransCare recommended a redesign of the whole supply chain. Significant savings had been realized through tender-management projects for transports at nearly every site and through coaching the employees in dispatching processes. The reduction of the number of warehouses, a decrease in inventory and the restructuring of the distribution lead to savings of more than 15%.
