Logistics from A to Z

11/02/2021

OC22, a supplier of hot and cold beverages and disposable cups made from plant and compostable materials for the hospitality sector, has brought its logistics operations in-house. To do this, it has installed the Easy WMS warehouse management system by Mecalux along with a complete range of pallet racks at its installation in Vigneux-sur-Seine, France.

OC22 will instal Mecalux's Easy WMS and Multi Carrier Shipping at its warehouse

With this recently commissioned project, the company set out to perform its storage, order prep and distribution tasks all on its own, thereby cutting logistics costs.

At OC22’s warehouse, which operates at different temperatures, the WMS organises goods receipt and storage and order preparation based on the requirements of Odoo, the firm’s ERP. Easy WMS optimises operator tasks and movements to gain in reliability and productivity.

Orders are delivered in three different ways: they are sent by an internal carrier, delivered by an external agency (such as Geodis, STEF or Chronopost, among others) or picked up by the customers themselves. Mecalux installed the Multi Carrier Shipping module to speed up dispatches and automate communication between Easy WMS and the transport agencies.

A family business

Founded towards the end of the 1960s, OC22 supplies the catering industry and institutions such as schools and hospitals throughout France with cold and hot drinks (coffee, tea and hot chocolate), coffee machines, and disposable cups made from plant and compostable materials. Committed to providing impeccable service, OC22 continually invests in new information technologies, including its WMS, ERP and mobile applications. Its goal is to enable customers to track the products they have ordered in real time.
