Assistance logistics systems
The Philips Domestic Appliances and Personal Care (DAP) division in Drachten produces top quality shavers for all over the world. Adjacent to the production facility is a newly extended warehouse (LoCe) for semi-manufactured products.
Existing resources were limited due requirements associated with SAP implementation and the ongoing warehouse expansion. Philips required assistance in logistics processes and implementations of logistics systems.
