Single point of contact for logistics in Europe
Molnlycke Health Care has successfully expanded to become a global provider of single use surgical and wound care products. But in Europe, their expansion resulted in a patchwork of local solutions and agreements, leading to a less than perfect distribution network. That is why Molnlycke Health Care decided to simplify and modernise their logistics setup.
Molnlycke Health Care believes that delivering their entire product range within 48 hours across Europe is critical to their business plans. To reach their goal, Molnlycke Health care worked with DSV to develop and implement a clear strategy with several discrete phases.
A mix of local transport partners hindered uniform solutions and led to excessive administration for Molnlycke Health Care. To create a single point of contact, DSV was asked to handle transport in some countries and take ownership of the rest, letting Molnlycke Health Care concentrate on the larger picture.
Next step was to consolidate the warehouse setup: Large warehouses in Sweden, Belgium and France now act as regional hubs, while smaller warehouses in strategic locations act as regular outlets for scheduled deliveries. The change has resulted in the ability to sell and ship both price sensitive products and high-service solutions to more customers with greater ease.
Molnlycke can now deliver medical equipment and services very quickly, efficiently and with full transparency to hospitals and clinics, saving money outbound and inbound and cutting down on storage needs to only ship what it sells.
