The project

A high-end fashion house expected significant growth and had already outgrown their existing warehouse.

In order to meet future global demand, they wanted to evaluate their current warehouse footprint to secure sufficient capacity and efficiency.

The scope of the project included the global warehouse and distribution footprint with the following main drivers:

  • The current warehouse footprint and capacity were not able to meet expected growth.
  • Meeting future growth and customer requirements in the most optimal way.
  • Securing efficiency in terms of cost and CO2 footprint.

The impact

The project resulted in the projection and modelling of the client’s future warehouse capacity need. It identified new warehouse locations, automation potential, distribution setups and created business cases and a transformation plan.

The project secured sufficient warehouse capacity until 2028-2029 and yearly cost savings of ~10%, increasing to ~28% when the full transition is completed.

In addition, the project also reduced the CO2 footprint by ~16% compared to baseline.
