Separating the logistics chains of merchandise and material goods, dm was put in a position to outsource the logistics for the latter to a logistics service provider. This was both a relief to the company and freed up resources, allowing dm to realise a significant performance gain.
The condition for the strategic step was the seamless electronic networking of all control elements in the materials management logistics chain – from the stores to the logistics service providers to the suppliers. For this purpose, QUIBIQ developed an efficient order interface: for the employees in the stores, their seamless integration into the logistics systems of the service provider with continuous process control based on the BizTalk Server, as well as the connection of all suppliers.
