To improve the efficiency of the Sales Outlets in terms of stocks, the Central Warehouse – called Service – at the headquarters in Fossano in the province of Cuneo, with an area of over 25,000 square metres, has been operational since 2006. The goods are handled by means of barcode radiofrequency identification with random location, essential for managing the over 50,000 items stored on the shelves.
In 2010, vertical automated storage systems were introduced for handling the high rotation products: this allows Bi Esse to maintain a constantly high level of service and to meet customer needs in terms of delivery of materials.
Every day a transport network, based at the Central Warehouse, replenishes all the Sale Outlets to ensure punctual efficient order clearance. For deliveries direct to the customers, another network operates covering Piedmont, Liguria, Lombardy and Valle d’Aosta. All the transport for the other areas, both Italian and foreign, is provided by important national and international forwarding agents.
