Background and contents of the project
In the first learning phase PlaNet Logistics helped Tikkurila to define optimal logistics network for one specific market area. A cost-based tool (Oracle Strategic Network Optimization) was used in to optimize warehouse and distribution structure. Tikkurila gained valuable knowledge during the process.
In the second learning phase PlaNet Logistics facilitated a logistics training for Tikkurila Group logistics managers. Training included (theoretical) strategic, customer service and operative sessions, as well as excursions to selected benchmark companies.
Tikkurila especially valued reflective homeworks, groupworks and excursions. Direct feedback from one participant: “It`s a good logistics community you made!”
