Distribution and stocking locations optimization

April 6, 2016 2313

Resinex is a pan-European distribution company with a leading position in the plastics and rubbers distribution market. Resinex is the only polymer supplier covering all European countries, Turkey and FSU with a broad network of sales offices and local warehouses combined with a central logistic department and warehouse in Belgium.

Resinex is part of the Ravago Group, the number one global service provider to the plastic and rubber industries. 

Resin Express operates 45 sales offices in Europe. As a result of the fast, continuous growth the logistics organization is fragmented i.e. 60 stock points in Europe alone. This setup was perceived inefficient and the objective was to see if and where warehouses could be consolidated to reduce total supply chain costs without affecting customer service.

The European supply chain footprint was evaluated. Alternative scenario’s were defined for the optimal number and location of the European warehouses. In parallel the stocking policy was reviewed (per SKU it was defined in what warehouse(s) to locate which amount of stock).

The following benefits were perceived by our customer:

  • Providing a clear outlook on the future supply chain strategy for Resin express;
  • Significant reduction on operational costs through consolidation of warehouses and redirection of stock;
  • Ready to implement solution. Resin Express implemented the quick-wins with their own staff directly following the project.
