specialized retail

The specialized retail sector is continuing to expand by gearing its products and services to its customers' expectations. Growth is happening in several areas: geographical expansion, optimisation of product ranges, development of new distribution channels and multiplication of contact points with customers.

CHALLENGES

  • Ensure product availability while limiting stocks, in a context of constant range renewal and ever more elaborate sales drives.
  • Have a flexible and responsive logistics tool, for use across several channels, for products that often have highly variable physical characteristics, supply procedures and sources.
     
  • Optimise warehouse supplies by turning suppliers' pricing terms to best account, all the while controlling stock levels.
     
  • Minimise stock retention through the Just-in-Time approach by practically eliminating the risks of out-of-date or damaged stock.
     
  • All the while keeping logistics (distribution and transport) costs down - which are structurally on the rise.
