Today, consumers expect e-commerce sites to provide almost instantaneous and customized delivery of goods purchased online. This demand requires that online merchants and their logistics providers implement specific processes. GEODIS, which has many leading e-commerce businesses among its customers, has taken the measure of this challenge.

“To give our e-merchant customers the means to address the new expectations from consumers, we were looking for a logistics solution tailored for e-commerce”, said Vincent Castaignède, Head of External Logistics Solutions at GEODIS. “In other words, a solution that would enable logistics processes essential to e-commerce to be carried out in our warehouses such as customizing orders, mechanized transfer of packages from storage areas to detailed picking areas or the implementation of specific picking strategies”. GEODIS chooses Generix Group to manage its warehouses in France and Europe

“We have opted for the GCS e-logistics solution to manage our warehouses in France, Italy, and Germany. In addition to the Generix Group’s excellent references in many areas, we were attracted by the opportunity to partner with the Group to develop modules in addition to those we had in-house” Vincent Castaignède went on to say.

Through this partnership, GEODIS can address the needs of its pure player e-commerce or home shopping specialist customers. The logistics operator is now able to prepare orders more rapidly, to react instantly in case of a sudden increase in demand while improving the quality and security of its logistics processes.
