Another warehouse for more customers

The expansion enables the creation of an additional 1000 pallet spaces to meet the growing demands of customers. Two modern truck ramps ensure efficient loading and unloading of goods.

The expansion of our warehouse by 1500 m² is another important milestone for our company. This not only allows us to significantly increase our storage capacity, but also to optimize the workflow for our customers.

Efficient warehousing: Optimize your inventory with us and maximize your supply chain performance!

Efficient warehousing in the new warehouse: optimize your inventory and maximize the performance of your supply chain!

The clearly arranged and compact warehouse, with short distances, ensures efficient warehousing for successful order picking. By optimizing stock levels, we can not only reduce costs, but also maximize the entire process. This means that you as a retailer always have the right stock in the right place at the right time, can avoid supply bottlenecks and meet your own customer requirements more effectively.

Simplification of the order handling process

Simplifying the order fulfillment process is an important step towards increasing the efficiency of warehousing. Here are some best practices that we implement:

  1. Automated order processing: By implementing JTL’s automated order processing system and connectors, we can reduce order processing time and minimize errors. The system automatically retrieves the orders into the JTL warehouse management system to speed up the shipping process.
  1. Real-time information: Providing real-time information on order status, with the tracking number, allows retailers to respond to changes and answer their own customer queries. By connecting the warehouse management software with an ERP or store system, the retailer receives real-time information on stocks, orders and deliveries directly in the store in both directions.
  1. Optimizing the layout: An optimized warehouse layout can significantly improve the efficiency of order processing. By placing frequently requested products close to the shipping area, we can reduce picking time and speed up the shipping process.

Improved fulfillment for FBA and B2B retailers

The additional pallet spaces enable us to optimize fulfillment for FBA retailers (Fulfillment by Amazon) and B2B store operators.

Layout and organization of the warehouse

The layout and organization of the warehouse are crucial for efficient warehousing. Here are some best practices:

  1. Zoning: By dividing the warehouse into different zones, we can better organize your stocks and avoid bottlenecks. Zoning by product type, demand frequency or other criteria enables you to manage your stock efficiently and reduce picking time.
  1. Shelving systems: The use of shelving systems enables better use of available space and easier storage of products. By using pallet racking, shelving or heavy-duty racking, we can store your goods better.
  1. Clear labelling: Clear labelling and signage of the storage areas makes it easier to find products and minimizes errors during order picking. By using labels, barcodes or RFID tags (Radio-Frequency Identification), stock can be identified more quickly and the accuracy of stock tracking improved.

Strategically favorable location for optimal warehouse logistics

The new location in the Lüneburger Hafen industrial estate offers our customers an ideal solution for the storage and distribution of their products and pallets. The proximity to the Port of Hamburg, excellent transport connections and the company’s own forwarding agency ensure that container logistics are handled quickly and reliably.

Inventory management techniques for efficient warehousing

Well-planned inventory management is crucial for efficient warehousing. Here are some proven techniques that can be used:

  1. ABC analysis: ABC analysis is a method of classifying inventories according to their importance for the company’s processes. By categorizing stocks into A, B and C classes, we can concentrate on the most important stocks.
  1. Just-in-time (JIT): The just-in-time method aims to manage stock so that it is available exactly when it is needed. By coordinating closely with suppliers, companies can minimize their inventories and still ensure smooth production and delivery.
  1. Stock forecasting: Accurate stock forecasting is crucial for efficient warehousing. By analyzing past sales data, seasonal trends and demand forecasts, companies can better plan their inventories, avoid bottlenecks and optimize the flow of goods into our warehouse. The use of inventory planning software and the regular review of forecasts enable retailers to continuously optimize inventory management.

Efficient communication and collaboration in the warehouse

Efficient communication and cooperation in the warehouse are crucial for efficient warehousing. Here are some best practices we use:

  1. Direct communication: Direct communication can avoid misunderstandings and prevent disruption to the process. This is why our customers are given a direct telephone extension to the warehouse employee responsible for them. Through regular meetings and instructions, we ensure that all employees have the same information and work together effectively.
  1. Teamwork: Working together as a team enables employees to complete tasks more efficiently and avoid bottlenecks. By forming teams that are responsible for specific tasks or areas, we can increase productivity in the warehouse.
  1. Use of technology: The use of technology can improve communication and collaboration in the warehouse. Each employee is given their own telephone number and e-mail address, allowing them to communicate with each other quickly and easily. The integration of JTL warehouse management and connection with other software systems enables seamless data exchange and improves the efficiency of contract logistics and the supply chain.
