Logistics & E-commerce inspiration session (Dutch-language event)
Get inspired and exchange ideas on logistics topics!
On Wednesday 19 October, Groenewout is organizing a ‘Logistics & E-commerce’ inspiration session: an afternoon of knowledge and networking focused on the latest logistics-related technological developments.
New technologies are having a wide-ranging impact in logistics, both in order picking and packing, enabling you to boost your productivity, increase your flexibility and – where possible – speed up your processes.
Attend Groenewout’s inspiration session on Wednesday 19 October to discover how your company can make these technologies work for you. Groenewout will zoom in on Goods-to-Person picking concepts. Packing strategies will be addressed in two company presentations: one by Kramp, Europe’s biggest specialist in agricultural parts, and the other by bol.com, the Netherlands’ leading online retailer. Sign up now to secure your place on 19 October!

15:45 Reducing the size of packaging at Kramp: what did that entail?
Kramp has switched to reduced-height fixed-footprint boxes in several of its warehouses. How did the company reach the decision for this packaging technology? What were the lessons learned? And what are the short-term expectations?
- Maarten Markerink, Warehouse Engineering Manager, Kramp
17.00 Automated packing @bol.com
At bol.com, the packaging for all loose items has been automated since 2015. Even more new machines were added when the new warehouse went live recently. These machines facilitate even smarter packing, which means smaller parcels, less packaging material and minimal air in each shipment. Find out on 19 October why bol.com chose this solution and how it has been integrated into the total operation.
