Reliable and Efficient Distribution from a Central Warehouse
Merging the German and Danish distribution warehouses ensures more efficient processes, faster delivery and more satisfied customers. The TRIAX warehouse in Hornsyld, Denmark is empty, the last truck has left: The relocation process had already been running since the beginning of this year, – now it is complete. From now on, all deliveries reach the customers from the central warehouse of the logistics service provider OHL in Padborg, directly on the German-Danish border.
Central location – efficient shipping
The Danish company has over 300 transport units and branches in Germany, Norway and Sweden. The central warehouse in Padborg has over 50,000 m2 of storage space, of which TRIAX requires less than 10%. However, the extensive delivery activities make TRIAX an important partner for OHL. In addition to the central location and the appropriate company size, certification according to the standards for sustainability ISO 9001 and SQAS also spoke in favour of the Danes.
Reliably and on time, despite major challenges
The fact that the previous German warehouse in Lahr was also closed down and had to be relocated at the same time presented the entire process with real challenges. A total of 19 complete truckloads were necessary from January 2023 to transport all commodities to Padborg. At the same time, it had to be ensured that all customers continued to be supplied reliably and on time. In addition, from the first week of February, customers in Germany and Austria were already being supplied from the new warehouse while the relocation process continued.
More efficiency and speed through streamlined processes
Now everyone can relax, all targeted optimisations have been achieved. The centralisation of the warehouse location and the resulting reduction in warehouse space have made enormous increases in efficiency and cost savings possible, and all processes have been streamlined. For customers, this means an even better, even faster service from a single source and from a central location. In future, even more orders will be able to be processed on the same day. In addition, the assembly of the Hit FESAT satellite dishes will also be handled by the logistics service provider OHL.
The responsible project manager, Brian Svendsen (Logistics Project Manager), is accordingly very satisfied:
