DACHSER Contract Logistics in detail
All warehouse and process designs are individually tailored to your needs. With regard to your industry-specific requirements, we combine our various storage systems, manually or automatically, to create the optimal overall solution for you. We use different forms of storage depending on the product, for example high-bay warehouses, block warehouses, wide and narrow aisle warehouses or small parts warehouses. Each item is handled as required by the customer as well as by legal conditions. We manage the professional storage of hazardous substances (DACHSER Chem Logistics) as well as the hygienic handling and temperature control at DACHSER Food Logistics, or the Value Added Services (VAS) required for your orders.
In all cases, the computerized control of goods in warehouses is based on our own warehouse management system, Mikado. The innovative software is an integral part of the end-to-end networked and integrated DACHSER IT solutions. You set the level of integration – from manual, web-based delivery order entry via DACHSER eLogistics, to fully integrated data exchange via EDI.
You can choose from two warehousing categories: Our Multi User Warehouses, which offer the highest level of efficiency by bundling different customer transactions into one warehouse, as well as Dedicated Warehouses for individual and specialized warehousing solutions. On request, we will also take over your in-house logistics. As an external logistics partner, we control all goods movements and optimize the overall logistics process of your company. We execute all the picking techniques and outsourcing strategies that you require. A continuous MHD and batch tracking is standard at DACHSER.
