Strong supply chain provides basis for growth at Wildkamp
Wildkamp offers a very varied range: from colossal drums and pipes of more than six meters long, to screws and rings of only a few millimetres. All locations are supplied from the central distribution centre. “In the past few years, the total range has grown considerably to 60,000 SKUs,” says René Makkinga, Head of Logistics. “Together, with the growing number of locations, this led to several challenges: increasing obsolescent inventories, problems with seasonal and assortment changes, and too much stock at wrong locations. Also, because it was laborious to phase articles in and out, we started to search for a structural solution for inventory optimisation.
