Project for the Hypermarket Chain

29 June 2012

SOLVO has recently completed a project for Essen’s major distribution center (Naberezhnye Chelny, Republic of Tatarstan). Essen – a major hypermarket chain in the Republic of Tatarstan, comprised of 24 stores, which are located across the entire region. Solvo.WMS was recommended by the audit company “Fort Dialogue,” as an optimal solution – one that would be a perfect fit for Essen’s business processes.

The facility for automation was a new warehouse with an area of 10,000 m2, which maintains an inventory balance of 1000 - 1500 SKU. The warehouse is divided into zones for storing food and nonfood products, and is equipped with a racking system, refrigerators as well as 10 docks for receiving and shipping.

The system implementation project was carried out by specialists from SOLVO throughout the course of five weeks. The team seamlessly implemented the Solvo.WMS system without any technological process disruptions, which may have delayed shipments to the retail chain. In the second stage of implementation, the system was configured according to client preference while personnel underwent testing for not only their knowledge of the WMS system but also warehouse operations as a whole.
