A process expert evaluates warehouse operations to improve efficiencyNexus team analysis aids specialty chemical company

Looking to improve efficiency and its capabilities, a global specialty chemical company asked Nexus to optimize the operations of an existing warehouse. The client’s existing warehouse was designed to operate as a FIFO (first in, first out) system, but was not currently using the FIFO system. Working with Nexus, the client was seeking ideas betvictor appto re-design the warehouse so the client could have the capability to store their finished goods along with raw materials without expanding their existing facility.
