Sonepar is constantly improving its logistics. The Group has invested heavily in recent years, particularly in 2015, to raise service quality.
The logistics platforms are in the process of expansion, modernization and automation. In 2015, Crawford Electric in Dallas opened a new multi-level distribution center with over 15,000 square meters of floor area, including meeting rooms and co-working spaces.
Among the innovations developed was the mini-load Shuttle Automated Storage and Retrieval System, a computer-controlled system for automatically processing orders, retrieving product loads and managing stocks. The system has likewise been adopted at Lumen’s new logistics center in Canada. It is also in place at the new distribution centers in France, including the 24,000 square-meter warehouse in Bordeaux, as well as in Germany, the Netherlands, Spain and elsewhere. Thanks to all these solutions, our customers receive “the right product in the right place at the right time.”
