The Turkish branch of the Carrefour supermarket chain, Carrefour S.A., has recently implemented Slimstock’s inventory management solution, Slim4, to optimise inventory across all of their stores. With 6 DCs and 630 stores located across Turkey, Slim4 optimises both the inventory at the central distribution centres as well the replenishment of the stores.
From major hyper market stores with over 50,000 SKUs to smaller supermarkets, convenience stores and speciality shops, Carrefour S.A. offers a range of formats in Turkey. However, with 12 million SKUs in total, planners must ensure that products are distributed from the DC’s to the stores effectively. With the support of Slim4, Carrefour can now calculate the optimal order point for each product and location.
