A Balanced location selection
At the seminar of Nederland Distributie Land (NDL) on November 1st, 2011, Groenewout presented the results of a benchmark study on the optimal location for a European Distribution Center. Alain Beerens co-presented with Matthijs Weeink, Partner at Investment Consulting Associates
A multi disciplinary view on the optimal location of your European Distribution Centre:
- Chief Financial Officer: “what is the cost optimal distribution concept, both on OPEX and CAPEX”
- Chief Executive Officer: ”how does the distribution concept support the long term corporate strategy and mitigate its risks”
- Chief Operations Officer: “how do we align the global corporate footprint and synchronize its supply chains”
By using a corporate business case technique, Groenewout integrated and quantified these different business perspectives into its 2011 NDL Benchmark Report.
