As a retailer, you have to satisfy the needs of consumers through multiple channels (e-commerce, stores, drives, home deliveries…). To do so, you must anticipate their demands and manage two supply loops within your Supply Chain: the warehouse – store network loop and the supplier – warehouse loop. This implies optimizing multiple supply and logistics conditions. In addition, your offer is characterized by a very broad reference base, large volumes, frequent product launches and range renewals as well as regular promotions.
