Part of a new strategy

A transport company at heart - since 1970 - Jan de Rijk Logistics is developing into an all-round logistics service provider. Part of its offer is contract logistics: warehousing, fulfilment, but also assembly and customs services. Years of experience have led to the identification of (new) markets. Jan de Rijk Logistics focuses on retail & e-commerce, consumer electronics and after market & spare parts. In order to best serve these sectors, it was decided to automate as many repetitive processes as possible.

Erik van Dee, Business Development Manager: "For us, it started with the implementation of a new warehouse management system in 2019. We also expanded our team with experts in the field of warehousing. We took a year to map out the issue of automation." To do this, Jan de Rijk Logistics called in the logistics consultants of the UC Group, who asked Lalesse to join them in their thinking. A solution with the AutoStore 2020 system was chosen.

Account Manager Mark van de Weijer says

"It is great to see how Jan de Rijk has prepared the organisation for a new, automated way of working in a relatively short period of time. This facilitated the implementation and ensured a flying start with the system. With the AutoStore, they have a very strong fulfilment offering with which they can serve many new customers. Thanks to the automation, Jan de Rijk can not only offer an attractive commercial rate, but the whole offer becomes more competitive," says Van de Weijer. "In addition, the system is set up in such a way that it can be easily expanded as the company grows. As Lalesse Logistics Solutions, we are proud of this great solution and look forward to continuing our cooperation with Jan de Rijk.
