Supporting ADEO’s Supply-Chain Restructuring Efforts

Task

Drafting and causing to be approved of a 4PL supply contract for Leroy Merlin’s Russian hypermarket network

Client
ADEO Group
Industry
Supplying Household and DIY Goods

Background

In order to optimise its supply chain, ADEO Group is carrying out a global campaign to outsource its transport, logistic and customs-clearance processes related to the supply of a retail network.

Russia’s market is a key one for the company after Latin America where it had previously implemented a similar approach.

The provider contract was expected to cover all aspects of direct product supply and the matters related to the protection of intellectual property rights, provision of customer warranty services, and calculation and payment of supplier’s fees.

One special task of this project was to develop a concept for inclusion of a new supplier with no risk of suspension of the sales.

Outcome

As a result of our work, not only will Leroy Merlin be able to reduce the administrative costs to maintain its warehouses but also to focus on the efforts to implement a more aggressive expansion strategy.
