Modelling & simulation
12 March 2015
Over the past year third-party logistics provider, Penske Logistics, has been using CLASS software from Cirrus Logistics to model over 10 warehouse facilities. Penske wanted to make operational improvements for its customers by testing its warehouse layouts and changes before any physical or financial investments were made.
"We use CLASS for new site selections to test if our processes will work effectively and on budget for customers, as well as to continuously test different scenarios for existing customers. For example, what would happen to a facility if a customer grows by 10 per cent?” remarked Rob Clarijs, project manager at Penske Logistics.
"CLASS provides us with the best scenario testing to ensure that our facilities work efficiently and cost-effectively; whilst showing the customer that our change recommendations are the right ones for their investment.”
