JYSK Relies on SAP Expertise of inconso


inconso implements warehouse solution based on SAP EWM in the new Distribution Center Bozhuristhe (DCB), Bulgaria

The retail chain JYSK, in Germany and Austria trading under the name DÄNISCHES BETTENLAGER, has commissioned the logistics software specialist inconso to implement a holistic SAP based warehouse management solution for the new Distribution Center Bozhuristhe (DCB) near Sofia, Bulgaria. On a total site area of 300,000 m², JYSK has just started the construction of an innovative logistics center. From there, the company will be able to provide even better service to customers in Bulgaria, Romania and the west Balkan area. To this end, inconso delivers the warehouse management system SAP EWM (Extended Warehouse Management) together with the material flow system SAP EWM MFS and the inconso add-ons inconsoSIM and inconsoS/Line.

The warehouse solution based on SAP EWM 9.4 provides JYSK with efficient processing of inventory management with a significant reduction of the delivery time in the Balkan area. Approximately 10 million transport kilometers will be saved a year, in light of the fact that JYSK has doubled the number of stores in Bulgaria within the last year and expects to keep expanding its business.

In the project, inconso incorporates its comprehensive experience in the implementation of SAP EWM and SAP EWM MFS. JYSK will benefit from a dynamic allocation of the picking area and a suitable replenishment concept as well as truck optimization and resource planning which inconso is able to implement due to SAP EWM’s flexible data model.

The material handling equipment and the automated storage and retrieval system for the DCB will be delivered by the system integrator Consoveyo, a Körber Logistics Systems company, which was commissioned to integrate a complete automated storage and handling system. It consists of two high bay warehouses with a capacity of 120,000 pallet locations. These high bay warehouses will be connected with the inbound, picking and shipping areas via an extendable rail-guided vehicle (RGV) system for fast, flexible and optimized transportation of goods within the facility.

The go-live is planned to start in 2018 and will be accompanied by emulations based on inconsoSIM that allow for realistic tests of all warehouse procedures before the distribution center enters into full-load operations in a second step in 2019.
