Summary of the project
Il Gigante, one of the leading mass market retailers in Northern Italy and a specialist in fresh food, has renewed its trust in Generix Group's supply chain solutions and has chosen its WMS using SaaS (Software as a Service) to manage the logistics of its new e-commerce channel, launched at the end of March 2017.
Three major axes characterize the project:
- Creation of a dark store, an ad-hoc warehouse exclusively serving the on-line sales channel. Thanks to this, Il Gigante has achieved more efficient stock management and aims to reduce stock-outs to zero.
- Advanced e-commerce just like in the shops, fresh products cut, weighed and packaged on request can be bought also on-line. These have always been the brand's flagship products.
- Click-and-collect method, with goods ordered on the e-commerce portal and collected from defined pick-up points: 10 pick-up points.
