Distribution Network Study and Implementation
Albert Boehringer started producing tartaric acid back in 1885 in a small factory in Ingelheim, close to the German city of Mainz. Now, over a century later, Boehringer Ingelheim is a major pharmaceutical company generating an annual turnover of more than 13 billion euros. Despite employing 44,000 people worldwide, Boehringer Ingelheim remains a family-owned company to this day.
Boehringer Ingelheim decided to merge its Belgian and Dutch operations, asking Groenewout to carry out a feasibility study to help optimize its logistics processes and support during the implementation.
