ADVEO outsources logistics
| 18 December, 2017
ADVEO has signed a services agreement with Italian C2U to outsource the company’s logistics operations in Italy, in particular the management of the warehouse in Castel San Giovanni.
ADVEO says that this alliance is a step forward in the company’s process to improve efficiency, as it was defined in the Strategic Plan 2017-20, that aims at transforming ADVEO into de European Platform for Workspace Solutions.
The agreement will become effective in August 2018 and will go on for 8 years. It will involve moving and outsourcing the management of the warehouse to a new location in the same town, with a bigger capacity and top-level technology. This will allow ADVEO to have a more efficient management system, adapted to the business evolution. This new logistics model will significantly reduce costs and improve the quality of services to customers.
All personnel in the warehouse in Castel San Giovanni will integrate in the new C2U team, although ADVEO will keep control over all processes (demand planning, reverse logistics…). Additionally, the logistics outsourcing will involve moving headquarters in Italy to a new location next to the new warehouse.
