All about warehouse logistics

Meet the »Team warehouse logistics«

In February 2000, the Fraunhofer Institute for Material Flow and Logistics (IML) in Germany and the IPL Consultants B.V. firm in The Netherlands established the Team warehouse logistics. The team objective is to match customers and providers of warehouse management systems (WMS) properly. The team then supports the WMS selection and implementation.

Under the name Team warehouse logistics runs and continuously improves the international »WMS Database«. It is the leading logistics platform for WMS worldwide. Experts from the Fraunhofer IML and its regional partners validate the functional scope of the listed warehouse management systems annually. Customers use the WMS Database to select suitable systems and providers.

Since 2010, our partner Induvation GmbH provides Team warehouse logistics services to customers in the Italian market.

The Benefits of Using the Expertise of Team warehouse logistics

The customers and users of our services benefit from our proven expertise in warehouse management. As specified below, we acquired this expertise through the work we performed and the solutions we implemented:

  • We performed annual onsite validations of about 90 systems and about 70 WMS providers. For the systematic tool-based choice of suitable systems (certified according to DIN EN ISO 9001), our team evaluated the responses to our survey, which tests for 3,500 criteria.
  • Our experts performed various strategy or portfolio consultations for WMS providers and examined their technical due diligence in WMS-related decisions.
  • Market studies, presentations and seminars on warehouse management were part of our services.
  • Our experts assisted in trade show presentations and collaborated with trade organizations. Furthermore, they were involved in the coordination and preparation of VDI Standard 3601 for warehouse management systems.
