Implementing a new logistics location is a complex, large-scale project that requires effective and efficient cooperation between all project participants. With many years of experience and expertise, 4flow works together with customers to successfully realize location and technology projects – from planning and tendering to equipment purchasing and implementation.
From planning to successful implementation
Implementing new logistics processes in existing or new structures involves numerous interfaces.
During this process, technical and organizational requirements have to be checked and validated. At the same time, construction work progress must be monitored continuously. This often leads to new infrastructure measures and detailed questions that require short-term decision-making and adjustments to the original supply chain concept.
During this process, tendering and selection processes for new equipment and the coordination of external service providers are crucial – and getting the right technical expertise can be the ultimate success factor.
Structured and efficient implementation planning
4flow uses a multi-stage planning approach for implementation projects that considers the different dependencies between measures and implementation steps. Clear, transparent time schedules and detailed resource and budget planning enables on-time implementation. The approach also ensures that deviations are detected quickly, and that necessary countermeasures can be developed.
Innovative and proven methods for project management
Seamless implementation depends on the right communication with the target group. To achieve this, 4flow applies proven and innovative methods for project management. Consistent stakeholder management and a direct communication strategy ensures complete transparency between all relevant participants as well as efficient cooperation to achieve project success.
By continuously following and tracking the schedule, deviations can be quickly identified and reduced. As a central partner, 4flow takes over project management and ensures adherence to time frames, quality criteria and the budget, as well as the go-live and subsequent process stabilization.
Neutral tendering and selection process
With many years of experience in handling tendering processes, 4flow has in-depth knowledge of the supply chain and logistics supplier market. As a neutral partner, it can therefore efficiently and comprehensively select required suppliers for its customers as part of an implementation project. 4flow manages the entire tendering process – from creating long lists, developing requests for information (RFI) and requests for quotes (RFQ), evaluating supplier presentations, as well as handling negotiations and the final contracting. By working closely together with customers, 4flow finds the ideal partners for implementing individual solutions.
Ramp-up and process stabilization
In addition to technology, organization is key to the successful implementation of new processes and locations. 4flow temporarily takes over operational management tasks, creates process descriptions and work instructions, trains staff in new work processes, tests equipment and IT functionality and carries out the entire acceptance process. And, with experience from numerous change projects, 4flow works together with customers to design individual change processes.
