Supply chain performance continues to improve: inventory quality is progressing and productivity and service quality are growing. Rexel has multiple tools at its disposal to help make this continuous improvement a permanent feature of its logistics.
> Product lifecycle management: the challenge consists in maintaining a satisfactory balance while manufacturers broaden and renew their ranges at increasing speed. Thus, the supply chain no longer functions in silos but interacts with marketing, purchasing, IT, HR, sales, etc.
> The deployment of the Lean approach, which expresses Rexel's commitment to a continuous improvement approach by using the right method. Well implemented in France, it is being rolled out progressively across all of Europe.
> The permanent warehouse network adaptation: the reorganizations in Germany, Spain and the United Kingdom have helped improve customer proximity and service levels.
> Constantly evolving IT systems, namely with bar code reading of delivered products, delivery delays and order follow-ups.
> Automatization, whenever its ROI is good.
