A quality logistics company – 5 key features of platform in Sered

Logistics is not just the mere transport of goods from point A to point B. A successful company must offer value-added services.

Being close to your customers, but at the same time not disturbing them right in the city centers, this is in short, the basic rule of site selection. Access, traffic flow or motorway availability should be kept in mind. If your business is strategically located near motorways, airports, railways or ports, logistics can be very efficient. FM Logistic’s platform in Sered is located close to the most important motorway connecting the country’s two largest cities, Bratislava and Košice. This route is also an important transport hub to Poland, the Czech Republic and Austria, as well as a key co-packing and co-manufacturing hub for the entire Central European region.

Already when selecting the location, it is necessary to plan how the building will be arranged, where the fleet will be, where the trucks of customers will arrive. The basic and for some people perhaps quite banal condition, which will considerably simplify the movement of goods, are smooth and flat floors, as well as higher ceilings. The warehouse building simply has to be spacious enough and logically arranged. The international logistics platform in Sereď covers an area of 55,000 m2 and offers warehouse space with a capacity of approximately 80,000 pallets. A huge technical advantage is the perfect design of the construction solution, which was developed directly by FM Logistic and allows for a very efficient use of space. The fact that the company is also the owner of the building is an added value. This gives it greater flexibility and the possibility of arranging both the space and the processes without having to consult the developer.

Time is money, which is why today it is extremely important for logistics companies to offer the widest possible range of omnichannel services and products within the supply chain. Imagine getting a comprehensive, tailor-made logistics service and not having to find suppliers for partial activities. Within the FM Logistic platform, activities ranging from product labelling, blistering, preparation of gift-packs for product promotion, to shrink-wrapping, i.e. the joining together of several types of goods with shrink-wrap, can be realized. It is also possible to process the displays, which are directly placed at the point of sale and contain the actual products to be sold.

As in all sectors, logistics is moving forward by leaps and bounds. The right tools or applications can help to eliminate complicated logistics problems and help to reduce both the duration of tasks and the costs associated with them. The undeniable advantage of automation is that it can make employees’ jobs easier. At FM Logistic, these include drones, autonomous forklifts, mobile robots or scanners with high-frequency identification. The company’s strongest point in Slovakia are co-packing and co-manufacturing services, which account for up to 65% of the entire business in Slovakia. The platform is equipped with universal robots, but also fully automatic machines that, for example, sort products and pack them into blisters or bags.

It is no longer the case that only a society that describes itself as “green” or “socially responsible” should be sustainable. Ecology and sustainability are now “mainstream” and this is also true in logistics. Most companies want to reduce the environmental impact of their operations and consider the entire life cycle of their products. Logistics companies can provide their clients with sustainable supply chains so that every link in the chain has a minimal impact on the environment. FM Logistic has developed a comprehensive sustainability policy called ‘Supply Change’, promoting environmentally friendly co-packing solutions and carbon neutral warehouses, many of which are equipped with solar panels. It avoids the use of plastic and other toxic substances, and adapts packaging sizes to minimize both material use and transportation. It primarily uses recyclable and reusable materials. It also operates all-electric and hybrid delivery vehicles designed primarily for last mile delivery.
