Abstract

As early as the end of the 1970s, the fischer group of companies decided to establish the Global Distribution Center (GDC) at the central location in Waldachtal. The GDC serves as a supply warehouse for all fischer national companies and importers in over 100 countries and as a distribution warehouse for customers in Germany and France. Since its foundation, the demands placed on the GDC have undergone constant change. A trend towards smaller batch sizes and more variable ordering patterns can be seen, for example, in customer orders. The higher frequency in logistics requires a high degree of agility in order to be able to meet all customer requirements to the appropriate quality and in good time.
