Our customer is a leading cosmetics store chain, which distributes more than 300 brands, in addition to its own private label range.
As a part of a major international luxury fashion house our customer required us to consolidate a variety of cosmetic products such as make-up, fragrances, hair care products, accessories, body and bath products and its own brand, from 40 distribution points within Brazil into one of CEVA’s multi-user sites located just outside of São Paulo.
In order to meet the customers’ strict requirements we invested heavily in climate control infrastructure to enable the storage and handling of over 7,000 SKU and approximately three million individual order items each year. We also manage the inbound, warehousing, outbound and reverse logistics to the customer’s stores across the country.
We also took over the management of the customer’s 2,460m² of warehouse, with the objective of optimizing internal logistics flows while reducing costs.
We used our Matrix Warehouse management system as the interface to provide improved visibility and manage inventory more easily. The costs of the customer’s supply chain were significantly reduced.
We monitor performance through monthly and quarterly reviews. Our customer now manages 8,000 inventory management units and receives 5,000 new lines per month as well as shipping 250,000 pieces monthly thanks to dramatic improvements in processes.
Other benefits over the last five years since choosing CEVA to manage the customer’s logistics have been improved visibility of shipments, containers, POs and SKUs. This is now backed up by real-time transparent collaboration between customer, partners, suppliers and carriers. There has also been improved supplier compliance and reduced manual data entry and risk of errors through improved data quality.
