Optimized order processing for seasonal articles in the retail trade
Seasonal articles pose considerable challenges for purchasing and logistics in retail. After all, the goods must be available in the stores and online exactly in the week in which they are advertised in the brochure. Lean logistics included.
Taking all restrictions into account, the goods must reach the point of sale both on time and at optimum cost. The costs must be considered holistically, from ordering to transport and storage.
The suppliers, who are mostly based in Asia, call for different minimum order quantities for the various goods, for example. The capacities in incoming and outgoing goods at the central and regional warehouses are sometimes limiting factors in the logistics network. And the sale of bundles in the stores makes it necessary to look at bills of materials.
In this online seminar, we will show you how the operational processing of the flow of goods can be optimized with the help of a discrete-time model and will address the following aspects, among others:
- Creation of a suitable model according to customer-specific planning requirements
- Mapping of complex relationships between suppliers, transport, warehouse and store requirements
- Minimization of avoidable demurrage and detention costs
Our experts will be available to answer your questions in the final Q&A session.
