tendering and contracting for SEVERIN
SEVERIN is a traditional German company. For over 60 years, the company has been producing high-quality electrical appliances under the brand of the same name.
SEVERIN assigned alphalogs with the planning, preparation of the tender and the final acceptance of the new logistics centre with a volume of 36,000 pallet places and a daily throughput of 1,500 parcels and 1,500 pallets.
First of all, alphalogs prepares a functional tender for all logistical trades, automatic conveying and storage technology as well as IT systems for material flow and warehouse management.
Based on detailed market knowledge, alphalogs identifies potential suppliers and carefully evaluates the offers. Thanks to its extensive experience, alphalogs maintains an overview in the negotiation process, clearly differentiates between supplies and services and thus ensures that contracts are drawn up precisely.
During and after the construction phase, alphalogs takes over the acceptance tests for the new warehouse management system as well as the warehouse and conveyor technology within the scope of quality, performance and availability.
Thanks to the support of alphalogs, SEVERIN found the right partner for the new logistics centre. Just one year after the contract was signed, the new logistics centre was put into operation without any start-up problems. alphalogs supported the entire process right up to the acceptance tests.
With the new logistics centre, SEVERIN can guarantee shorter delivery times and better customer service - and save costs along the way.
planning, tendering and implementation for WEPA
The WEPA Group is a family-owned company based in Arnsberg and active throughout Europe. It is one of the three largest European manufacturers of hygiene papers.
alphalogs develops a sustainable logistics strategy for WEPA, including planning, tendering and implementation. The client is successfully guided through the project, which includes the construction of an automatic high-bay warehouse with approx. 33,000 pallet places and a shipping capacity of 3,000 pallets per day.
A head start through pre-planning: alphalogs thinks far ahead in the conception phase in order to be able to achieve long-term goals. The framework conditions relevant for success in terms of content, deadlines and prices are included in the planning right from the start. alphalogs designs all processes, drafts layouts and defines technology with a sense of proportion.
The following detailed tendering and prudent project management allow the individual elements of the implementation to mesh together smoothly. alphalogs also coordinates the start-up of operations and gives the staff confidence in new processes.
After just twelve months, the WEPA paper mill receives the second fully automated logistics centre with the support of alphalogs, which starts up without any problems and is in commission according to plan. This was made possible by detailed planning and consistent project management.
The high-bay warehouse enables WEPA to increase service quality and reduce throughput times as well as logistics costs.
