Major project for MediaMarkt and Saturn
Almost everyone knows them, and almost everyone has bought something from them – MediaMarkt and Saturn, Europe‘s largest electronics retailers. Since May, we have been managing the new central warehouse for the two brands in Rosdorf near Göttingen (Lower Saxony), from where all MediaMarkt and Saturn stores in Germany will be supplied with goods in future.
We store every electric and electronic gadget imaginable in an area of around 72,000 square metres, including smartphones, notebooks, XXL televisions and product innovations such as drones, VR glasses and e-scooters. To ensure that the logistics run smoothly, a completely new team of up to 300 people is being set up to handle all the tasks.
Recruiting is a major challenge – including for the further expansion stages – for which we have set up a task force comprising internal and external forces. For the induction of new colleagues, we have developed an induction concept, set up a training centre in Rosdorf covering around 1,300 square metres and put together individual training plans.
Our activities include the complete warehouse logistics within the supply chain: receiving goods from suppliers, storing them as well as picking and packing them according to demand and departmental needs for on-time delivery to the stores and online partners (such as Redcoon). Our specially enhanced warehouse management system ensures efficient processes and communicates directly with Media-MarktSaturn‘s ERP system.
In preparation for its introduction, we previously worked for MediaMarktSaturn in Erfurt. Here we ran the pilot site for testing the processes and IT systems until the new logistics centre was fully operational.
Currently, the next phase for the new National Distribution Centre is being planned, with the site set to be extensively automated and equipped with state-of-the-art warehouse and conveyor systems, etc. from 2022/2023.
