Why is it worth to be in the Alliance AIBĖ?
AIBĖ logistics warehouse is located in Kaunas district, in the territory of LEZ, and supplies more than 800 AIBĖ stores and other retail outlets throughout Lithuania. Warehouse area – 16 320 m2. It features areas with different temperature settings to ensure the storage of a wide range of products: from long shelf-life goods such as cereals, pasta, household chemicals, to shorter shelf-life dairy and meat products, as well as the selection of fresh fruit and vegetables.
The warehouse has a new warehouse management system, which makes managing and controlling all warehouse processes more convenient and faster. Goods are collected using RF terminals. This reduces errors, ensures control and increases productivity. In parallel, a transport and yard management system has been installed to optimize vehicle loading and routing, and to control and manage supply flows. This avoids congestion in the goods reception process and controls vehicles entering and leaving the area.
More than 5,000 tonnes of goods (more than 12,000 pallets) go to AIBĖ stores per month. Most of the goods are selected in units, due to the nature of operation of the AIBĖ shops in the Alliance. ROLL containers and pallets are used for transporting goods to reduce logistics costs for stores. Lead times for logistics orders range from 24 to 48 hours, depending on the frequency of deliveries.
AIBĖ Logistics orders goods using an online ordering application, which provides all the necessary information about the goods, product range, promotions, news, etc. Alliance members have the opportunity to order and receive goods not only from the warehouse range, but also from a wide range of suppliers, which are not in stock. These goods are supplied on a crossdock basis.
