Costo mechanizes warehouse Bouw Logistic Services

Costo mechanizes warehouse of Bouw Logistic Services

Bouw Logistic Services, a leading firm in wine logistics, will heavily mechanize its  fulfilment warehouse in Gorredijk after acquiring Baarsma Logistiek. Costo supplies the conveyor systems (transport, packing, sorting), pick stations with Pick2Light technology and overall control by implementing the Arrow Warehouse Management System (WMS) solution from its daughter company Xtend. Costo also delivers all peripherals like labelling systems, printers and scanners.

Bouw Logistic Services is a family owned business and exists since 1932. It was originally a transportation company, but it specialized in recent decades in the logistics of wines and spirits. The acquisition of Baarsma Logistiek in 2016 meant that the company acquired the status of market leader in the B2C market. Bouw Logistic Services has been delivering for decades to wholesalers, retailers and the hospitality industry and as of last year, due to the new activity for customer and e-tailer E-Luscious (web sites like  wijnvoordeel.nl) also directly to the consumer.

During the acquisition of Baarsma Logistiek, the company discussed with E-Luscious about future developments and the current working methods. The outcome of this research was a decision to drastically mechanise the warehouse activity. In the new warehouse in Gorredijk all usual processes are in place (goods reception, storage, orderpicking, shipment). The company also offers Value Added Services such as administration of excise duties, repackaging, labelling, pricing and kitting.

The warehouse has a surface of 10.000m2 in which around 3.000 products find a spot on 7.000 pallet places. The 40 employees are daily engaged with goods reception, orderpicking and shipment preparations.

To find the right partner for the mechanization process, the company decided to investigate for 3 months, including making several reference visits. Eventually Bouw Logistic Services ended up with Costo. "Costo not only had the right experience with this kind of logistics projects," explains Patrick Endeman, Logistics Manager at Bouw. "They also showed a pleasant no-nonsense attitude to which they added their flexibility and a proactive approach. We liked that a lot. "The new systems will not only meet new requirements with regards to output (needs to cope with 1250 boxes per hour), quality and flexibility, but we also expect to lower the number of forklifts and FTEs in the warehouse also be reduced. This will yield some  immediate savings.

The new warehouse will be operational in June 2017.
