How Nilfisk Food optimised their warehouse management


The industrial company Nilfisk Food chose to outsource their warehouse management to Solar. The result is a much more streamlined warehouse. During the past years, Solar has managed warehouse control, which contributed to a reduction of internal consumption of resources by monitoring stock and automatically order more products before the stock ran out. As a result, Nilfisk Food has reduced their stockpile with a third, which equals annual savings of approx. DKK 100,000. They also improved their delivery performance to 98% compared to previously 80-85%, caused by products in back order.

Furthermore, time spent in the warehouse decreased, which meant that the employees could spend their time more efficiently. The positive effects of the change are also felt in the accounts department. Now, they experience a lesser need for invoice control whereas previously, Nilfisk Food needed to keep track of payments to many different suppliers.

”We have reduced our stock value by around DKK 100,000 per year. We also save quite some time due to an almost completely automated ordering process.” SOURCING MANAGER PRODUCTION WITH NILFISK FOOD, TIM DALLGAARD
