Hellmann Worldwide Logistics has opened a “Model-Logistics Centre” which is designed to show customers how the continuous improvement process works within Hellmann.
The centre will provide two-day training sessions, consisting of matching theory and simulation sequences to help customers’ understanding of the processes and prove how important performance levels are to Hellmann.
During the training, participants have eight minutes to unload, handle and correctly re-load 80 packages. The aim of the session is to gradually reduce and eliminate any errors so that processes flow smoothly from start to finish. At the end of the two days, the participants’ data knowledge and the flow of goods will have improved.
Bärbel Krehenbrink, Head of Human Resources Development at Hellmann, said:
“By allowing employees to gain experience with process optimisation, transferable skills that can be applied to their every day roles are learnt. This can now also benefit our customers if they register themselves.”
