The permanent change in customer requirements, also in Switzerland, as well as the increasing number of logistics networks has significantly altered the shipment structures. This results, for example, in shorter product life cycles and fragmented order quantities of customers. As a consequence, retailers respectively product finishers try to keep their stocks as low as possible.
