Within a given campaign, the life cycle of each model (initial launch and replenishment) must be taken into account in logistics planning and design, since logistics facilities must be able to absorb important “peaks” and have an agile and fast responsiveness to variability in demand.
Footwear and accessories need a differentiation in their treatment compared to conventional textiles due to the specificity of their volumetric. There is no standardization of packages typical of textiles and there is a wide range of SKU sizes from large footwear to much smaller accessories. Likewise, in the design of the logistics solution, high performance must be obtained and high added value activities (labelling, alarm, RFID, packaging, …) also need to be included.
From LPM we have helped our clients to develop projects in this line: More agile and flexible distribution centres to provide the required service. We have participated in the design stages, from the initial analysis to the proposal of the recommended solution, then we have put out to tender the project packages and carried out a Project Management of the entire implementation and commissioning of the installation.
