Bergendahls Food Expands Rapidly Supported By Aptean’s WMS Solution
Bergendahls Food is the challenger with the fastest growth in the Swedish daily grocery trade. 3,000 employees generates 1 billion Euro from wholesale as well as own grocery retail store chains City Gross and EKO.
Bergendahls Food is one of the larger retail trading companies in Sweden. The business includes three divisions, focusing on Food, Fashion and Home Deco with 4,000 employees in six countries.
Bergendahls Food needed a new real-time based supply chain operation to increase efficiency and delivery precision.
The investment in Aptean’s WMS was based on a decision to develop the supply chain operation along with modernizing and automating the central warehouse.
Bergendahls have calculated that ROI was reached after two years. The new voice interaction solution has meant higher picking efficiencies and lowered costs.
IMI Warehouse Management has helped us expand the operation without restrictions regarding number or size of warehouses, with or without automation. With voice-directed picking we have a solution where users can focus on handling the products. It provides better ergonomics, higher productivity and precision, and reduces the risk for accidents.
