Supply Chain Optimization
GEODIS can take on full or partial management of your supply chain to optimize performance and costs. To meet tight sourcing constraints in the retail sector, GEODIS operates a full-scale supplier flow management program. This affords control over a broad network of players in countries of varying industrial constraints. To optimize costs, GEODIS offers its retail customers ‘mutualized’ solutions, achieving efficiencies through grouping supply flows at multi-client consolidation centers. By sharing expenses, all customers achieve substantial reductions in logistics costs. GEODIS implements specialized systems to minimize store supply lead times and to adapt to the development of new retail formats such as Drive and e-Commerce. And because retail is subject to high seasonal variations, GEODIS implements flexible flow management capable of handling seasonal peaks and troughs.
To transport your goods, sourced from every part of the world, our teams use multi-modal transport solutions (sea, air, combined), with a clear preference for low-pollution modes such as rail-road and waterway barges. At each step in the process, GEODIS handles reception of goods and can provide services such as inspection, cross-docking, de-grouping.
To meet retailers' needs, GEODIS constantly optimizes its storage space capacity. GEODIS people use innovative, special-purpose equipment designed to enhance the productivity of your product flows: single and double racks, dynamic locations, voice picking.
With its close-mesh distribution networks, GEODIS can ensure your stores are reached regularly, making for consistent supply levels throughout the day.
