DSG international plc (previously Dixons Group plc) has again chosen Consafe Logistics as a supplier in its process of modernizing its warehouse management systems in Europe. DSG International is investing in SattStore WMS at its Italian retail chain UniEuro s.P.a. This is part of a comprehensive project to introduce modern technology and adapt to the need for increased reliability and secure delivery.

DSG international plc is Europe's leading specialist electrical retailing group with operations in thirteen countries and with more than 1400 stores. DSG international’s turnover 2004/05 was £ 6.98 billion.

DSG international’s investment in SattStore WMS for its Italian retail chain UniEuro s.P.a is part of a comprehensive project to introduce more modern technology and increase warehouse management reliability. Acquired by the Group in 2001, UniEuro currently operates 96 stores, mainly at out of town locations and concentrated in the north-west and north-east of Italy. The company’s goal is to increase efficiency, improve delivery security and reduce costs by 30 %.

SattStore WMS and TraffiCom truck terminals are going to be installed in all UniEuro warehouses across Italy.

El-Giganten is part of the Norwegian Elkjøp group, owned by DSG international, and an important Consafe Logistics customer. The central warehouse in Jönköping controls logistics and distribution for the entire Nordic region with the help of SattStore WMS. The warehouse is one of the largest in Sweden. It has an area 80 000 sq.m, the equivalent of 14 football pitches and is one of the most advanced warehouse systems in the Nordics. Electro World, a DSG group company in the Czech Republic, has been an important customer for Consafe Logistics since 2003.

Sean Feeney, European Logistics Director for DSG international comments on the reasons for DSG again choosing Consafe Logistics. ”Our experience from previous projects together with Consafe Logistics has shown that they are the right partner for this type of project. The company’s expertise in logistics and high quality in project implementation led to us wanting to further consolidate our partnership to include Italy, and also as a long-term partner for future European projects”.
