About OD+

OD+ is a leading Italian distributor of office supplies and stationery, offering retailers a wide range of innovative and high quality products. In addition to this, OD+ offers marketing, logistics and management service solutions.

The Challenge

Since its inception in 2007, the OD+ warehouse in San Cipriano Po’, Italy has spanned 25,000 m2 (270,000 ft2). A surge in order volumes over the past five years prompted a comprehensive logistics overhaul aimed at servicing multiple distribution channels while simultaneously streamlining fulfillment operations to reduce its operational footprint

Errevi Automation, a local Exotec integrator, was commissioned to redesign the warehouse’s order fulfillment infrastructure. Central to this redesign was the implementation of a cutting-edge goods-to-person system. This innovative approach ensures the direct delivery of products to employees for order picking, thereby minimizing their workload and enhancing operational efficiency.
