Description

For over 10 years Vos Logistics acts as a logistics service provider for Victorinox Travel Gear Ltd. Victorinox is particularly known for its Swiss army knife. The travel gear division manufactures and markets suitcases, briefcases, duffel bags & totes, backpacks and carry-on bags.

Opportunities

Groenewout was asked to conduct a review on the current distribution footprint structure in EMEA. I.e. determine the impact of consolidating the travel gear division with the other Victorinox business units in Switzerland.

Solution

Groenewout conducted a number of computer simulations to assess the impact of transferring the travel gear logistics operation from Belgium to Switzerland.

  • Impact on operational costs (transport, warehousing & inventory)
  • Tax implications
  • Lead time implications

Benefits

  • A holistic logistics view that was used by Vos Logistics & Victorinox to validate the planned logistics strategy.
