—  Name, Title

In 2019 we started Servator Group because we no longer believe in thick reports that go into too much detail too early.  We stand for a different approach to design and optimization to be able to provide well-founded advice within a few weeks.
For this we have developed 'Logistics Routing': we first determine the direction together and only then fill in the details.

Depending on the required knowledge, we do this with our core team of specialists or we call in our partner network , so that we can unburden you up to and including the realization.  

Our team brings knowledge and experience in Sales, Marketing, Supply Chain, Logistics, Project Management, Lean and Real Estate. We have worked with and for shippers, logistics service providers, manufacturers of Material Handling systems, Supply Chain software and developers in various industry verticals including (r)etail, Fast Moving Consumer Goods, High Tech, Spare Parts, Healthcare.

Depending on your company’s life phase, you will have to make choices in different areas to become or stay ahead of your competition by improving your organization. To determine the right direction, you need answers fast to, for example, questions about in/outsourcing your logistics, warehouse space requirements for various growth scenarios, product range and stock optimization or robotization concept selection.

Based on this need, we have developed 'Logistics routing': logistics navigation, in which we have reduced the most frequently asked questions to five themes:

  • Do it yourself or outsource: Carry out logistics yourself or outsource it based on strategic and financial considerations and tender support for shippers and 3PLs

  • Optimization: Improving logistics processes, stock, route and planning and comparing KPIs with best practices.

  • Automation and concept selection: warehouse robotization and mechanization possibilities, concept selection and WMS selection

  • Design and storage dimensions: Logistics design, warehouse layout and plot dimensions including expansion options for various growth scenarios in assortment groups, stock and sales channels.

  • Interim support: support in the implementation of our advice

Logical order
Logistics Routing analyses are always performed in a logical, fixed order.
If the workshop and benchmark analysis show that a new warehouse is necessary, you first want to know the warehouse size and plot dimensions at alternative growth scenarios per sales channels, geography or assortment, so that the consequences can be made shared company-wide.
A good warehouse design then requires the optimal storage and order picking concept including feasibility of investments in mechanization or robotization and the expected capital and operating expenses.
Within logistics routing outsourcing could also be an option. If cooperation with a logistics service provider is more interesting for strategic and/or financial reasons, we will deepen this process and look for a suitable partner.

We are happy helping you to take the most logical turn at each cross road / decision. We do not do this through extensive studies but through observation, measurements, analyses, workshops and benchmarks.
