A functioning economy relies on well designed supply chains & logistics that have been optimized to ensure flexible and sustainable growth.
The challenges are plenty. Supplies to production sites, transfer hubs and multi-channel clients, for instance, must be considered in both economic and ecological terms – under constantly changing conditions. Digitalization and automation technologies and systems lead to more efficient intralogistics operations, and transparent network structures result in stable supply chains both on the regional and the global level.
Productivity, cost efficiency, flexibility, sustainability, rising service levels, among other topics, are becoming increasingly important. Addressing these issues requires foresight and an insight into current trends and innovations. io supports you in methodically solving all these challenges throughout the entire project, from strategic planning to successful implementation.

Logistical processes need to be seen as an integral factor in achieving strategic corporate goals. We work alongside you to develop individual supply chain strategies to maximize returns on your investment decisions and to properly integrate the different interests and requirements of your processes.
Our planning disciplines
Planning, converting or expanding logistics centers begins with an analysis of requirements. We define the needs on the basis of targeted data evaluation, and then plan the respective logistics and process areas, tuned to your products and processes, from the inside out. This involves us comparing different technical alternatives, evaluating the right level of digitalization and automation, and benchmarking this against best-practice solutions, to find a solution that is a perfect fit for you.
Competitive production and intralogistics are nowadays unthinkable without automation solutions. The use of automated transport systems, such as automated guided vehicles, autonomous mobile robots, etc., is on a constant rise.
They represent an efficient method of implementing intelligent, software-supported transport, picking and storage strategies. Integration and networking with other automation solutions offer further optimization potential, from loading and unloading, to picking, palletizing and packaging systems, and collaborative robots.
We are not tied or biased toward any individual manufacturer, and are thus able to explore the contemporary technology and system landscapes to identify the potential for automation solutions for your business.
A transport, storage or picking system used in logistics only achieves full efficiency and productivity when the technologies used are innovatively and intelligently combined into a flexible, sustainable and comprehensive system that thoroughly supports the logistics processes. We offer independent advice on the use of innovative technologies, taking into account their limitations and alternatives, and combine them to create new individual best practice solutions tailored to the client’s specific requirements.
