Description of tasks
Warehouse analysis and reorganization

Planning object
Logistical analysis of the internal logistics and storage area with the aim of optimizing processes and material flows

In order to improve internal handling processes, the AKK Altonaer Children’s Hospital gGmbH commissioned GREAN to reorganise its logistics area. This department is responsible for supplying the hospital with medical consumables and other supplies.

We could rely on GREAN at all times during the joint project. The company has safely accompanied us from the conception to the implementation and always convinced us. GREAN stands for excellent work.

Together with the client, the first phase of the project was to analyse the warehouse stocks and to evaluate and optimise them with regard to various parameters, such as range, number of suppliers, call-off frequency, etc. A major result was the reduction of complexity by lowering the number of articles. This was achieved, among other things, by outsourcing individual product groups. In addition, stock levels and ranges of coverage were redefined and proposals for improved internal and external warehouse connections were developed. In a second project phase, proposals for the reorganization of the warehouse layout were developed and accompanied into the constructional implementation. A major focus here was on improving internal processes by means of an optimized layout as well as improving visual transparency in the context of the specific warehouse design.

In detail, the following services were provided:

  • Recording the ACTUAL situation

  • Analysis of the stock data

  • Derivation of inventory and process potentials as well as transfer into recommendations for action

  • Dimensioning of stocked articles

  • Development of a concept for the future organisation of the storage area

  • Creation of a warehouse layout

  • Selection of the storage technology

  • Implementation planning and support


Factory planning

New construction on a greenfield site or expansion of existing buildings - we offer you comprehensive advice and sophisticated planning services for a well conceived factory. For us, this includes basic master and factory structure planning as well as support for your project right through to implementation. Whether new or reorganisation planning - we are experts in factory planning.

Process optimization

In many factories, high inventories, long travel, search or lead times are a major cost factor, which at the same time massively reduces production efficiency. This is what we do: Our customers benefit from well-founded, systematic and analytical consulting. In this way, we work with you to increase the efficiency of your production.

Resource efficiency

High and ever increasing material and energy costs are becoming an efficiency problem in many factories. We systematically investigate where potential is lying dormant and then identify meaningful and economical measures for improvement. In this way we increase the material and energy efficiency in your factory - and at the same time reduce your energy bill.
