- Real-time tracking of deliveries and dynamic route planning to minimize delivery times.

3. Optimization of warehousing

- Implementation of a modern warehouse management system (WMS) for the efficient management and optimization of warehouse stocks.  

- Use of barcode and RFID technologies to speed up warehouse processes and reduce errors.

4. Digitization of order processing

- Introduction of EDI (Electronic Data Interchange) systems for automated communication and order processing with customers and suppliers.  

- Implementation of workflow automation to reduce manual intervention and speed up processing times.

5. Training and change management

- Training employees in the use of the new digital tools and systems.   - Measures to promote acceptance and understanding of the changes.

6. Monitoring and continuous improvement

- Setting up dashboards and KPI monitoring to monitor the performance of the new processes.  

- Regular review and adjustment of processes based on the data collected and feedback from employees.
