MILAN – Founded in Turin in 1895, Lavazza is an Italian coffee producer. In recent years, Lavazza Group’s export share has grown considerably, in line with the company’s international development. In 2023, Lavazza launched a tender involving several WMS solution providers.

The primary objectives were to improve goods tracking, stock visibility and flexibility in managing inbound, outbound and shipping processes, along with surface optimization and ease of integration with existing information systems, including SAP’s ERP.

With the ambition of improving logistics performance across four warehouses located in France, which collectively process order preparation volumes larger than 125 thousand lines/year, Lavazza decided to select Generix’s WMS for the following reasons:

Rich functional scope including cutting-edge features – in addition to triangulation and slotting features – whose track record shows very significant productivity gains in terms of reduced paths (up to -50%) and increased efficiency on picking (up to +20%)


100% parameterizable WMS organized by process/activity, making it possible to activate new functionalities very quickly for more flexibility, scalability, and therefore being capable of supporting the company’s long-term growth ambition

Speed of a cloud deployment (SaaS) combined with the possibility to create models/templates that can be easily replicated on other sites, which also helps to reduce the overall cost

Generix’s thirty years of experience in managing highly complex projects both in terms of volumes and processes handled as well as in deploying solutions at global scale in multi-language contexts

The first project in the Île-de-France region has just been completed these days and the other three projects will follow closely, with the goal of go-live across all warehouses by the end of 2024.

“We are happy to announce this new collaboration with Generix, which will allow us to implement a solution that encompasses all the features we need to manage our activities, thus improving productivity and offering flexibility and scalability to support our company’s international growth and development”, commented Silvia Barbieri, Supply Chain Director at Lavazza.

“We are proud to support Lavazza in their warehouse digitization and optimization challenges. Lavazza is a long-standing customer as far as collaborative replenishment and this new project, entirely managed from Italy, demonstrates our strong expertise in WMS implementations and our ability to think globally and act locally, at the service of Lavazza excellence”, commented Loretta Chiantaretto, General Manager of Generix Italy”, commented Loretta Chiantaretto, General Manager di Generix Group Italia.
