We can offer you the warehousing flexibility you need so your business can grow.
Warehouse storage and handling
DSV ensures that your goods are optimally stored in the freight warehouse and handled in the most cost-efficient way. We find the right location for storing and handling your goods and also provide industry-specific storage solutions.
We offer multiple storage possibilities, such as condition-controlled storage, bulk storage, shelf and bin locations, as well as the conventional rack storage in a wide variety of location sizes. Once stock has arrived, we are continuously cycle counting to ensure that stock levels in your system are the same as the physical stocks in the warehouse.
We manage the inbound logistics solutions for your goods into our warehouses, as well as inspection and registration of the incoming products. Our inbound logistic services include unloading and palletising, checking the goods for defects and damage, registration of serial numbers or items and putting away your products to the assigned racking or bin locations.
You can send us your daily sales orders in an agreed format and timing. We manage outbound logistic picking principles, like 'First Expired, First Out' (FEFO), ‘Last In First Out’ (LIFO) and 'First In, First Out' (FIFO). Before dispatch we check the accuracy of each sales order, packing list and parcel label and subsequently load the orders into trucks or delivery vans. In addition to dedicated warehouse operators, we have a flexible pool of employees who can handle seasonal peaks.
We do more than just store your stock for you. Precise services vary from location to location, but our main global warehouse services are listed below:
Packaging and repackaging
Depending on your requirements, we can replace packaging of products. For example repackaging of damaged boxes, packing into new outer cartons or display cartons and management of country-specific, customer-specific and language-specific packaging.
We configure hardware, such as printers, computers, mobile telephones, internet routers and TVs according to customer and/or country-specific requirements.
Proper functioning of your products, based on your company’s standards can be tested in many ways, such as connection checks, functionality run-throughs, measurements and error reporting.
We can label your products with customer-specific information, including logos and barcodes.
We handle your customer returns and perform a wide range of repair works and product reconfiguration tasks. Our warehouse management system (WMS) is able to control and categorise various classes of product quality per SKU.
