GEODIS extends its relationship with Stokke to facilitate its imports into Asia

LEVALLOIS-PERRET

Norwegian children’s quality furniture and equipment manufacturer Stokke has contracted with GEODIS in China to establish a pan-Asian warehousing and distribution platform to facilitate its rapid consumer market growth via retail stores and e-commerce. 

GEODIS has been contracted to support the Norwegian manufacturer in what has been a rapid and successful market growth for Stokke. GEODIS has established two warehouses in the Shanghai region and will implement a specially designed IT solution to organize packaging, labelling, quality inspection, inventory control and palletisation of the imported products.  GEODIS will also organize the distribution of orders to retail outlets in over twenty cities throughout China.

The growth potential of the Chinese middle-income market is underlined by the increase in quality products being imported from Europe.  The Norwegian head-quartered Stokke AS, established over eighty years ago, has been producing premium children’s equipment, including highchairs, strollers and nursery furniture, for nearly fifty years and exporting to China for the past ten.

Lars Myrup, Managing Director Stokke APAC, comments: “We are experiencing a surge in orders for our ergonomic and nature-respecting products from the increasingly discerning Chinese consumer and required a supply chain service provider with a flexible approach to serving a dynamic market.  After an extensive tender process, the solutions provided by GEODIS combined with a respect for the environment in line with our own, convinced us of their suitability.”

GEODIS is delighted to be extending the relationship with Stokke that began some five years ago,” comments Onno Boots, Regional President Asia Pacific. “We pride ourselves on meeting the logistic challenges faced by our customers.  In the case of Stokke we have been able to design an IT platform that seamlessly coordinates the inventory control and value-added services we provide at our Shanghai warehouses with efficient road delivery to outlets across China.  This solution will also be able to facilitate e-commerce orders in the future.”

The partners potentially plan to extend their cooperation in due course to allow the distribution of Stokke products into developing markets in other parts of the Pacific Rim, including Korea, Japan, Singapore and Australia.

IIYAMA TRUSTS GEODIS TO HANDLE ITS EUROPEAN LOGISTICS

April, 30 2018

VENLO

iiyama is entering into a long-term strategic partnership with logistics service provider GEODIS. GEODIS provides the Japanese manufacturer of computer monitors and displays with a reliable and proven end-to-end solution. As such, GEODIS takes care of all customs handling, the transport of products from Rotterdam to Venlo (The Netherlands), storage & sales order processing at the GEODIS Campus in Venlo and daily outbound transport to final customers.

“We are growing very fast,” says Jeffry Pettinga, Sales Director Europe at iiyama. “In addition, we see a market need for larger desktop monitors and (interactive) signage displays, which means we are faced with even further complexity in logistics. With a view to the future, we were seeking to select a logistics partner that will support us in reaching our growth ambitions.” GEODIS was selected as the preferred service provider following a competitive market test, involving multiple parties. GEODIS’ knowledge and experience in the field of consumer electronics and high-tech, combined with warehousing flexibility in Venlo, were the key factors in the final stages of the selection process. Moreover, the integrated and control tower based outbound distribution service offering presents iiyama with a single point of contact for the entire scope of engagement.

The willingness of all parties involved to establish a mutually beneficial business agreement was incremental in successfully closing the final negotiations.

“We are delighted to welcome iiyama as a customer in our 135,0000 sq m and fully developed Campus in Venlo,” says Marc Walbaum, Deputy Director for Contract Logistics at GEODIS. “This new partnership is a clear recognition of our leading position as a supply chain operator by a key member of this demanding and dynamic high-tech industry vertical.”

GEODIS strengthens its capacity in East Africa by opening a new office in Uganda

GEODIS has opened a new office in Kampala, Uganda early last month. This new office represents an expansion in the Group’s worldwide network and will initially concentrate on catering for the surge in industrial projects currently taking place in the East Africa region.

The Uganda-based office will extend GEODIS – Industrial Projects’ footprint in Africa for both current and new key global clients. The new presence also provides a mechanism through which to tender for parts of a large-scale oil & gas project in the Lake Albert area, as well as managing the transport of supplies for the associated infrastructure development.

“Aside from oil & gas, the region demonstrates potential across a variety of industrial sectors including, power, renewable energy and transport infrastructure,” says Philip Somers, Senior Vice President Industrial Projects for GEODIS. “We will expand as we grow our share of participation in the various projects in the region. This has been a proven model for us in other parts of Africa, where some of our offices have grown to over 300 people. As a growth partner for our clients, we are committed to supporting them in their development. We look forward to serving both existing and new clients in Uganda – as well as in Kenya and Tanzania – in the years to come.”

Demographically, Africa is one of the fastest growing areas in the world, with a population that is expected to rise from approximately 1.2 billion in 2010 to 2.5 billion by 2050[1]. Uganda’s GDP is projected to increase by almost 6% in 2018[2]. This expansion translates into much potential activity in the field of logistics. Both Kenya and Tanzania provide vital transit corridors to Lake Albert in landlocked Uganda and are also ripe for expansion as they plan extensive development projects for their own Infrastructure, power supply and renewable energy provision.

Train to Hire : GEODIS invests in basic training for its “Hazardous Materials” Drivers

At both its Lillebonne and Villers-Saint-Paul sites in France, all of which are dedicated to the chemical sector, GEODIS is offering integrated training to180419 Âbrunoclergue_BC09972 22 job seekers. The training is offered in partnership with Pôle Emploi [the French national employment agency], the training organization AFTRAL, and the French Driving School (ECF). As part of the bargain, trainees will receive “hazardous materials” driver positions on permanent contract.

Since last February, GEODIS’ Lillebonne site has been supporting ten job seekers through a customized career development course, in preparation for their recruitment in May as “chemical-gas” drivers on permanent work contracts.

Meanwhile, each will have benefited from an integrated training given by the ECF, which will include: the heavy vehicle license CE (authorizing, in France, the driving of vehicles whose materials or merchandise exceed 7.5 tons); FIMO (Obligatory minimum basic training) skills training; and ADR (European Agreement concerning the International Carriage of Dangerous Goods by Road) authorization. The skill development of future drivers will be provided by GEODIS, which will get its new hires the “super heavy” CE license and train them for several weeks, in teams of two, on the specific processes of its clients.

“As the transport sector in France faces serious challenges in recruitment and driver retention, employee skills and the stability of our teams are more than ever the key elements of our quality of service,” explains Olivier Royer, GEODIS’ Executive Vice President Road Transport. “This is especially true in the areas of chemical and gas, which demand a high level of technical sophistication and unfailing safety.”

A similar project is underway at the Villers-Saint-Paul site, which also specializes in the transport of chemical and gas products. It involves twelve job seekers, holding only a C license at the start, who will undergo 280 hours of training (FIMO, ADR, CE license) conducted by AFTRAL, in order to be hired on permanent contract.

With these measures, GEODIS, as a leading employer in France, reinforces its commitment to training and development. Following Lillebonne and Villers-Saint-Paul, similar train-to-hire campaigns are already being planned for other GEODIS chemical sites.

This project is co-financed by GEODIS and OPCA Transports, an agency that finances professional training in the transport sector. It benefited from the support of Pôle Emploi in the preselection of candidates and the payment of compensation during their training.

WAREHOUSE INVENTORY USING DRONES: GEODIS and DELTA DRONE have entered the industrialization production phase of their completely automated solution

After almost two years of development, the completely automatic warehouse inventory solution using drones, perfected by GEODIS and DELTA DRONE, will be Drone d'inventaire - GEODIS DELTADRONE @HerveBoutet (8)operational at the end of 2018.

More than 1,000 flight hours in prototype mode across three pilot warehouses were required to arrive at this unique solution, which allows companies to perform completely automatic warehouse inventories without interrupting their usual operations or requiring any human intervention. The main advantages of this solution are the productivity gains generated by performing the inventories outside warehouse operating hours, greater safety at work for the site’s employees, who no longer have to carry out this tedious and sometimes risky task and a greater reliability of the inventory.

In the prototyping phase, multiple tests were carried out in real operating conditions in order to meet the specific constraints of warehouses, such as low light or the impact that the plastic film covering pallets has on image capturing, which required special adaptations to the cameras embedded in the drones.

This phase ended in 2017 with the development of a complete “plug and play” solution that can be easily moved from one warehouse to another without requiring that any prior changes be made to the warehouse. This solution also adapts to all types of Warehouse Management Systems (WMS).

Based on these extremely positive results, GEODIS and DELTA DRONE are now working on producing a system that can be manufactured, focusing their attention on the solution’s design and the final choice of the best components. The aim is to move to the industrial production stage at the end of the year. Initially, GEODIS will be the exclusive user of this solution in its own warehouses.

The solution designed by the GEODIS and DELTA DRONE engineering teams is unique. It combines a ground-based robot equipped with a battery that provides the energy needed to navigate a warehouse and allows freedom from autonomy constraints, and a quadcopter drone equipped with four high-definition cameras. This set, equipped with indoor geolocation technology, operates autonomously during the hours the site is closed. From an IT point of view, the solution enables the counting and reporting of data in real time, the processing of data, and its restitution in the warehouse’s information system. The tests conducted during this initial development phase show that the solution enables inventory to be managed reliably with rates close to 100%.

The Delta Drone Group is a renowned international player in the area of civilian drones for professional use. It offers a complete range of services, from data acquisition to data processing through a specifically developed information system, including a supply of professional pilots.
