Warehouse optimization at Oxford Bikes and VDB Parts
Over the years, Oxford Bikes has grown into a leading company within the Belgian bicycle industry. Oxford produces a wide range of recreational and electric bicycles.
About 8000 bicycle frames are kept in stock. All bicycles that leave the assembly line are stored per type and await shipment to the Oxford dealers in Belgium and The Netherlands, where the cycling fun for new owners can begin.
In addition to the production of bicycles, VDB Parts is a wholesaler that supplies the aftermarket with approximately 10 000 spare parts. These parts are distributed to bicycle dealers within 24 hours.
In order to sustain the significant growth of recent years, the expertise of De Putter & Co has been called uppon, to map out the most suitable solutions for these logistical challenges.
De Putter & Co proposed an optimized warehouse design through an audit of the goods flows, site layout, ERP functionalities and analysis of the logistics data. A roadmap for future logistics flows was also developed and recommendations for a new ERP and Warehouse Management System were proposed.
