Supply chain challenges in the Retail market

Transport and logistics are decisive issues in achieving competitive performance in the retail industry. As a top-rated transport and logistics service provider to this sector, GEODIS is ideally placed to offer optimum solutions, which are always geared at maximizing supply chain performance and optimizing costs.

Management of multiple and geographically diverse supply flows

Supply chains have become much more complex in recent years, with a number of dynamic forces in play, including sourcing practices, diversification in sales and distribution formats.  Because full and accurate visibility of incoming flows is more important than ever, GEODIS offers high-reliability real time tracking of your supply flows at both local and global levels.

Supply chain cost optimization

Control over the supply chain is a determining factor for competitive performance in the retail sector. Along with purchasing and marketing, transport and logistics are crucial productivity levers. By meeting your needs for the management and optimization of international flows, GEODIS solutions provide effective support to your growth initiatives.

Permanent in-store product availability

Successful performance of a retail business is highly dependent on the availability of products on the shelves. This means you need to ensure fast replenishment, often numerous times a day, while minimizing storage in sale areas. To prevent outages, GEODIS offers highly responsive, agile solutions covering all geographical locations, urban or suburban.

Reliable logistics for multi-channel distribution

Because your customers rely on the delivery times you promise across all delivery modes, reliability becomes a critical factor in brand image. In taking responsibility for the reliability of your supply chain, GEODIS will take charge of your multi-channel deliveries and commits to strict lead time compliance in all circumstances. 

Handling of very large goods volumes

Retailers are regularly confronted with seasonal peaks, so you need responsive partners who are capable of handling the logistics and transport of large volumes of goods at critical times. GEODIS' size and scope means it can take on very substantial physical flows, under tight schedules, worldwide.

A more responsible supply chain

European regulations are driving a shift toward responsible business practice with an emphasis on sustainable development. GEODIS integrates environmental and social factors in the supply chain management solutions it offers. Such environmental care includes measures for carbon footprint reduction, management of electrical and electronic waste and appropriate best practice in handling reverse logistics...
