Leroy Merlin Poland, one of the leading home improvement stores in Europe, a supplier of building, renovation and decoration materials, has selected JDA's Warehouse Management System (WMS) to support its further growth. JDA’s WMS will be implemented by JDA’s authorized reseller partner HKK – HIT KODY KRESKOWE.

Leroy Merlin Poland is growing at a rapid speed, continuously adding new locations to its business, helping homeowners throughout the country with their home and/or garden improvement projects. Leroy Merlin has a very broad portfolio varying from hardware building equipment though household decorative details to gardening tools, furniture and even flowers.

With such a broad offer the company needed a WMS that could provide ample flexibility. After in-depth market research Leroy Merlin Poland selected HKK & the JDA WMS after an extensive analysis of the currently available warehouse management solutions.

The JDA WMS will enable Leroy Merlin to manage its growth and to deliver customer service at an even higher level in the omni-channel business model.

The JDA WMS offers not only the standard WMS functionality such as inbound, storage and outbound, it also allows to incorporate various state of the art handling methods such as voice picking, advanced volumetric management, automation integration and grid picking to support modern logistics model that Leroy Merlin wants to implement.

The JDA system is planned to be implemented at a distribution center in central Poland. As a further step the system is planed to be extended by a special in-store picking option and implemented in numerous localization among the stores in Poland to support e-commerce fulfillment.

The JDA WMS will without doubt improve Leroy Merlin’s warehouse management as it has done in many other cases with retailers throughout Europe as well as on the broader international world market.

To summarize below are some of the direct benefits of the JDA WMS and its implementation:

  • Configuration of the logistics process of WMS that will directly lead to a more competitive position of Leroy Merlin within its line of business
  • Improvement of distribution center efficiency, labor productivity and customer service
  • Decrease of distribution costs and inventory levels
  • Increase of visibility (including In-Transit inventory), agility, accuracy and throughput

Offering the most collective supply chain expertise and problem solving in the industry both JDA & HKK work tirelessly to understand each customer's unique situation, goals and requirements to deliver results — faster.
