Abstract:Van Kommer BV is a family business that specializes in the storage and transportation of animal feed raw materials for business customers. The stored products are bags of 25 kg and big bags of 1 ton (1000 kg). As an extra service, Kommer offers the possibility to their customers to repack the products into big bags or trucks (25 ton). However, the current repacking process is not efficient. Furthermore, because the demand has grown rapidly over the last couple of years, there is a problem with handling the demand. Kommer can choose between two solutions to solve these problems. Kommer can decide to improve the current repacking process or to invest in a new one by investing in new machinery. In this thesis, we answer the following research question: “Which repacking process has the lowest costs of the raw materials per ton while having sufficient capacity to handle orders?”
