A-SIS supplies APAJH with a core-model logistics project


The disability-friendly company APAJH (Association for Disabled Adults and Young People), provider of logistics services for the coffee pod giant, relies on the know-how of A-SIS, a SAVOYE brand that publishes software programs for the supply chain, to support its customer in managing its logistics flows in France.

Every day, APAJH provides its logistical services on behalf of its customer in its 8,500 m2 warehouse in Alfortville (94). Entrusted with the BtoB and BtoC flows of the pioneer in the high-end portioned coffee market, APAJH arranges its platform in two units, one specific to e-trade preparation and the other to supplying shops in the Paris region. With about five hundred items, the site processes two million orders every year. Its logistics organisation therefore allows the coffee capsule leader to deliver its products in Paris on demand, seven days a week, and by arrangement through its dedicated delivery service.

Proven business expertise

In 2015, APAJH elected to renew its warehouse management system to ensure constant quality of service for its principal. Following a call for tenders, the publisher of software solutions A-SIS, already a partner of the international coffee supplier, won the contract: »A-SIS had the double advantage of having modelled a core model with our customer and also of being established at its second service provider«, explains Olivier Gousseau, Director of APAJH. »We needed a tool to organise our preparation based on our many cut-offs. The WMS LMxt from A-SIS was particularly suitable for our needs and constraints.«

High added-value modules

At the same time, APAJH added the following functions to its WMS solution: LM BI, a module for monitoring and running activities and performances; LM Label, dedicated to creating transport labels; and also the BtoB integration platform, LM Connect: »We used LM Connect to interface the customer system with our WMS. It met our technical expectations and demonstrated its reliability. We now have a single platform for managing the flows in line with our customer's requirements and are able to interface with their various service providers. Lastly, we have also become more efficient in controlling and governing flows,« details Nicolas Dudreuilh, Operations Manager for APAJH. As for LM BI, it has become »a central tool for the business for making use of all the data available in the WMS«, he continues.

Core model solution

Lastly, since 2018, the solution has had the added benefit of the LM WCS module that can control eighteen Pick to Light preparation tables designed by A-SIS and PRODEX, a Savoye brand. Two INTELIS CONVEY preparation lines and a sorting system have also been installed to overcome the obsolescence of the previous solution and the changes in the stock. »We were thus also able to adopt our customer's core model solution. Ultimately, A-SIS provided us with a complete system to secure our flows and become more productive. They quickly became familiar with us thanks to their knowledge of the products, the ecosystem and the constraints of our customer,« concludes Olivier Gousseau.
