Abstract:The Roerink food family started their business as a small farm store under the name of Zuivelhoeve in 1981 in Enschede, where they sold self-made desserts, and other dairy products. From this small farm store the company has grown to a medium-sized family business with five subsidiaries: Zuivelhoeve Vers, Van der Poel Desserts, Heks’nKaas, Happy Goat and Zuivelhoeve retail chain. In all those years of growth, increasing and optimizing the production had priority. But to keep handling this growth also warehousing & logistics should have priority. What raises questions to the company are the multiple locations where products for Zuivelhoeve Vers are stored and the corresponding internal inventory movements. Also the complete separation of Van der Poel Desserts’ logistics and warehousing from the other subsidiaries is undesirable. Therefore for these two subsidiaries we looked at what the possible alternative scenarios for the warehousing and associated logistics are and how well they do compared to the current situation. This has be done for the current stock levels and under different future growth scenarios. We compared the alternative scenarios with the current situation based on the operational costs per year, these are the total costs for storage and (internal) transport in a year.
