The global sourcing and distribution network of LPP is centrally managed and covers operations based on its own infrastructure as well as in cooperation with logistics operators. This network consists of an integrated system of Distribution Centres as well as Fulfilment Centres – each playing and important role in the implementation of logistics processes.
Distribution Centres are a key element of our logistics network, constituting the link between the supply and distribution systems. This is where all shipments from our suppliers arrive. They are then verified and stored to ensure timely and continuous delivery for the entire distribution system, including the brick-and-mortar chain and Fulfilment Centres for online sales. In the distribution centres, our goods are prepared for sale – e.g. sorted according to the orders placed by individual stores, packed, and refreshed. Here, too, RFID clips are encoded.
