Industrial supplies

Professionals in the hardware supplies or industrial supplies sectors face three main logistics issues:

  • a highly dense distribution network serving customers such as craftsmen and local authorities in less than 24 hours;
  • more deliveries of smaller volumes: customers no longer hold stock - this is now the distributor's role;
  • an increasing number of product references, since customers want to have a sole general supplier and not several specialist suppliers.

The product range is extremely diverse, with many products being especially bulky or long.     
This complex industry demands tools which can meet the high degree of flexibility required to manage the impressive catalogue of references and the objectives in terms of order-picking response times, stock management and service quality.

Logistics challenges

  • Demand focused increasingly on a sole supplier, rather than several specialist suppliers.

  • Highly diverse items: shape, size, weight, etc.
  • Irregular demand which is difficult to forecast: a larger number of installations but requiring smaller volumes - the stock is held at the distributor's.
