Keep Warehouse Throughput Times to a Minimum
Timely delivery to customers requires the ability to react quickly and seamless processes in order to keep warehouse throughput times to a minimum. The modern set-up of our warehouses and the optimal design of process organization, supported by state-of-the-art warehouse management systems, are the backbone of our high-performance warehouse solutions. They make up a core element of our supply chain and e-commerce solutions. Our multi-faceted expertise in the sector allows us to ensure correct intralogistics, tailored to your products and your individual requirements.
Especially in times of ever-faster globalization and digital networking, it is important to be set up in an international fashion. With 85 locations in over 20 countries, Arvato Supply Chain Solutions can offer its customers a global warehousing network for its products. We carry out both single- and multi-user solutions, which can be scaled as needed if you expand.
At our locations themselves, we rely on a mix of automation and manual value creation. As Arvato, we can thus ensure first-rate service with a combination of flexibility, speed and reliability in both the B2C and B2B areas, which is a decisive factor for our customers’ success, particularly in the context of seasonal or campaign-driven peak times like Valentine’s Day, Black Friday or Christmas. With this approach, we also create scalable systems and productive structures that can meet even an unexpected increase in volume.
Due to constantly increasing end-customer requirements, value added services are joining our core service element, conventional warehouse services, as increasingly important factors in our company’s success. The ability to combine logistical services with postponement, countrymizing or other value added services allows us to flexibly adapt our offerings to demand and keep warehouse inventory as low as possible. In order to also assure rapid re-availability of returns in the sales process, we offer our customers comprehensive returns management. For example, we bundle products for return shipments, in some cases using line-haul networks, use diagnostic tools for rapid identification of errors, integrate web-based self-service tools in order to avoid returns, and process inspections and maintenance of returns with maximum efficiency.
The integration of additional services along the order-to-cash cycle, such as order processing and payment management including risk assessment, means we can offer end-to-end fulfillment matched by no other supply chain service provider.
We have the right warehouse solution for fast-moving items as well as large volumes: Based on material flow simulations, our experts design and deliver the ideal warehouse layout and analyze the most efficient commissioning technique.
Powerful diagnostic tools for rapid fault identification, efficient inspection and processing of returnsto ensure a rapid re-availability in the sales process, professional repairs and cleaning, and smart self-service tools for avoiding returns– we offer a wealth of services.

Our portfolio ranges from labeling, printing, and enclosure of individualized product information or greeting cards, to bundling individual articles into new sets, through to more complex services such as software updates, returns management, and emergency deliveries.
