Clientcase: Malanico Retail

Restructure of technology, software and hardware

Think of any product that has to do with the nutritional and pharmaceutical needs of animals and Malanico Retail has it. With more than 6,000 different products, Malanico is the largest distribution partner for Dutch and Belgian pet shops, garden centres, DIY stores and webshops. The company asked Vanboxtel to completely restructure its technology, software and hardware.

Dynamic and complex processes

Malanico faces some serious logistical challenges. This dynamic organisation is both a wholesaler and a logistics service provider and it handles online orders for retail customers, shipped directly to consumers. Additionally, the company processes major cross-dock streams on a daily basis: every evening, circa two hundred picked pallets come in from clients, which have to be forwarded to other clients in a matter of hours. Furthermore, the company has a cold-storage facility and an inventory of small-scale products. Vanboxtel’s job was to integrate the myriad processes of reception, storage and release of goods and order picking into a single system and operation.

Logical pick flow and increased efficiency

Vanboxtel equipped Malanico’s warehouse with a new and fast wireless network and hardware access points. The Supply Chain Software has replaced paper picking lists and uses hand terminals and voice commands to create a logical pick flow and facilitate automatic order linking. By completing our courses, the staff of more than twenty pickers learned to work with the new technology and work method. The result for Malanico? Fifteen to twenty percent more efficiency in the picking process. Since all steps are now scanned and registered, the company has real-time insight into its various processes, inventory levels and defects.
