Consumer goods and distribution

Unforeseeable consumption, highly demanding customers, increased competition. How to improve your competitiveness?

The distribution sector must now face three major issues: increasingly unforeseeable consumption; an erratic clientele that is becoming extremely demanding, whether in terms of price or services, which leads to a short product lifecycle; and finally, increased competition due to the arrival of new brands and the race for new technologies.

These complex issues are compounded by the major challenges that must be overcome:

  • Constantly transform the processes to attract customers by using all available distribution channels (store, e-commerce, mail order, etc.) in order to develop the multichannel.
  • Constantly evolve the ‘product’ offering through new services (credit, rental, maintenance, customization)
  • Promote mobility with the help of new technologies (smartphone apps, contactless payment, etc.)
  • Rethink the store to position it within a truly global strategy (online store, interactive store, RFID, video, mobile, interactive kiosks)

KLB Group assists you in implementing your transformation projects and undertaking your operational projects

Within this context, KLB Group helps companies to implement an agile supply chain to meet the new conditions of the market (volumes, deadlines, places of delivery: home/collection point, returns handling, and stocks).

Support that also takes the form of establishing an IT organization focused on innovation and budgetary control, as well as a rebooted warehouse management that requires controlled costs (lease, equipment, energy costs) which is flexible enough to provide network mobility (modalities of adapted installation/uninstallation).

Thanks to the presence of performance-oriented experts in the activity (QCD) and consultants with experience in project management, in these complex and changing contexts KLB Group has developed and deployed an original and adapted service offering to meet the market challenges.
