Program of Requirements Italy
In 2008, Staples and Corporate Express merged. Staples is now the world’s largest supplier of office products. In Europe, Staples is active in 23 countries.
Staples and Corporate Express both had their own supply chain with many own warehouses. Since 2009, more and more an integrated supply chain is being developed. Similar operations within the same country are combined.
Staples Europe has a small team of people managing all these changes. Groenewout supports this team with data analysis, layout drawings and with Programs of Requirements for new facilities.
Together with Staples, Groenewout wrote a Program of Requirements for the new facilities in Italy and reviewed the specifications for the facility in Sweden.
Also AutoCad drawings were made for the layout of operations in Germany, Italy, Belgium, Sweden, Denmark and Austria.
