  13. 13. Page 13 Description Jabil is an electronics solutions company providing comprehensive electronics design, production and product management services to global electronics and technology companies. Jabil Assembly Poland (JAP) serves several OEM’s with final assembling and distributing of TV sets (LCD and CRT). Opportunities JAP was growing very fast and was outgrowing the capacity of the facility. This had a significant negative impact on the efficiency of the logistics processes. Jabil designed a new site with more space dedicated for receiving, storage and handling of components and finished goods. Groenewout was asked to develop a new logistics concept that should be more efficient and fit in this predefined facility. Solution Groenewout has executed the project in three steps: Step 1: Data gathering by Jabil. Based on client data, Groenewout has analyzed the current and future business volumes, both flows and storage, also taking into account the seasonality patterns. Step 2: Generating various solutions varying with storage density, mechanization levels, splitting local supply flows from storage products, etc. Together with the Jabil team the optimal concept was defined, both qualitative and quantitative. Step 3: Detailing out the preferred concept in CAD drawing with process descriptions, material handling equipment requirements, investments and operational costs etc. Benefits • Clear project approach with logistics expertise • Maximized storage capacity combined with flexibility and efficient handling processes • Detailed quantifications to support decision process • Final solution prepared for implementation. © 2012 Groenewout B.V. | All Rights Reserved. 9020XJ003 Material may not be reproduced or distributed, or stored in a database or retrieval system, without written permission from Groenewout.
  14. 14. Page 14 Description Abbott Laboratories B.V. has a central production facility in Zwolle. In this facility nutritionals are produced, prepared and packed. The nutritionals, distinguished in powders and liquids, are packed in cans, plastic bottles and tetra packs. Opportunities Abbott wanted to develop a master plan that defined a Blue Print for the site in Zwolle for five years ahead. This Blue Print will consist of a lay-out plan defining where functional areas for production, logistics and facilities are located. Solution As from the generation of the first data including growth figures it became clear that logistics was an important factor to include in the master plan for the facility. The future logistic movements and related operational costs were decisive to choose for two main warehousing areas, close to the related production activities. In this concept more flexibility towards the future was guaranteed and internal distances for pallet movements minimized. Benefits • Clear picture of future growth consequences, both visualized as founded with figures • Future role and relation of production and logistics identified • Phase time schedule for next decisions and steps. © 2012 Groenewout B.V. | All Rights Reserved. 9020XA038 Material may not be reproduced or distributed, or stored in a database or retrieval system, without written permission from Groenewout.

  15. 15. Page 15 Description Deli XL is a supplier and distributor for the food service market, with more than 40,000 customers and 60,000 products. In Ede, The Netherlands, their head office and chilled central warehouse for fresh products is situated. In this warehouse, orders are prepared on end customer level and distributed via four regional warehouses. Opportunities The warehouse in Ede almost reached the limits of their storage and handling capacity. In the next coming years, Deli XL expected a significant growth. Deli XL wanted to increase their warehouse capacity via an expansion of their existing warehouse. Solution A feasibility study was conducted to find the most optimal logistics concept for the future warehouse. Starting with a thorough analysis of the existing situation, the basic data for the future warehouse was prepared. From this data, three alternatives for the warehouse were designed. After a detailed evaluation, the preferred alternative was chosen. This alternative included: • New strategy for order release and tote filling algorithm • Separate picking and replenishment aisles • 800 m tote conveyors, including shipping sorter with put to light. Benefits • Clear insight in improvement opportunities of existing situation • Optimal new warehouse concept that meets required handling and storage capacities • Significant cost savings, ROI within clients requirements • Detailed project plan for the implementation. © 2012 Groenewout B.V. | All Rights Reserved. 9020XD022 Material may not be reproduced or distributed, or stored in a database or retrieval system, without written permission from Groenewout.
  16. 16. Page 16 Description Forever Direct is the European Distribution Center for AVA (Aloe Vera of America). AVA exclusively manufactures products for Forever Living in Texas (USA). Forever Living Products (FLP) is US-company founded in ’78. Its corporate HQ is based in Arizona (USA). FLP is today the world's largest grower, manufacturer and distributor of aloe vera, bee and nutritional products. FLP is a multi-billion dollar company with 8.5 million distributors worldwide over 125 countries. Opportunities FLP operates from an external DC in the Netherlands to serve the EMEA-countries. This DC has initially a bulk replenishment- function to the local, national sales warehouses in the EMEA- region (43 countries in total) In the new situation, a new EDC must be created for pick, pack, ship activities of the direct order-fulfillment shipments for a major part of the EU-countries and the bulk replenishments for the remaining EMEA-countries. Besides, new VAL-activities must be incorporated in the total solution. Solution The As-Is business volumes (flows and inventories) were calculated in order to determine the To-Be volumes. Topics as actual vs. future order profile, growth expectations, insourcing of new EU-countries and new processes and related volumes, seasonality patterns, organization, etc. were taken into account. All these calculations & assumptions were documented in a Logistics Strategic Document (LSD) . In the next phase, “The conceptual design phase”, 4 logistics scenario’s were defined based on the assumptions in the LSD document. Finally, the preferred solution was detailed-out: Layout, Capex & Opex, organization, implementation planning and ROI for both options: rent/lease vs. buying. Benefits • A detailed business transparency approach of the future situation based on data sets, questionnaires/interviews and validated assumptions. • Preliminary business case on which EU-countries are to be sourced on order fulfillment from the new EMEA-EDC. • Estimation of the savings (annually & one-off). • Optimal logistics concept of new EDC with layout design and sizing. © 2012 Groenewout B.V. | All Rights Reserved. 9020XF041 Material may not be reproduced or distributed, or stored in a database or retrieval system, without written permission from Groenewout.
  17. 17. Page 17 Description Outsourcing support for an industry leader in imaging products and solutions for the digital home and digital office environments. Supply chain characteristics: short product life cycle, high value products, mainly non-European suppliers, trend towards European centralization, pan-European distribution. Opportunities To increase flexibility and reduce company asset costs in preparation of an organizational change, Client was committed to selecting a Logistics Service provider to outsource the complete UK Warehousing and Distribution activities. Solution Groenewout supported the tendering process to evaluate the 4 potential LSP partners. Besides comparing the quality of the financial proposals, during live presentations by the LSP management teams, a risk assessment and overall impression formed part of the final evaluation criteria. After selection of the preferred partner, Groenewout supported the Due Diligence and contract negotiation process between Client and the proposed Logistics Service Provider. Benefits With help of Groenewout, Client managed to complete Due Diligence and contract negotiations in a very tight schedule. Within a two month period, a complete outsourcing contract was set up and agreed, covering a.o. • A performance based Service Level Agreement • TUPE transfer of 100 staff • Facility sale & lease back • Subcontracted contract migrations • IT usage & Legal settlement. © 2012 Groenewout B.V. | All Rights Reserved. 9020XC018 Material may not be reproduced or distributed, or stored in a database or retrieval system, without written permission from Groenewout.
