Hans Anders Retail Group takes a big step in digitalisation of logistic processes

The Hans Anders Retail Group has grown from 450 to more than 700 shops in a few years. To facilitate this growth, we are taking a big step to ensure that all Hans Anders, eyes + more, and Direkt Optik shops will be supplied even more flexibly and efficiently. The logistic processes of frames and sunglasses will be fully digitised from today onwards. We will go from paper-based to system-guided working, with multi-order picking for shops and the introduction of tablets and scanners in our warehouse.

Due to the expansion of the Hans Anders Retail Group and the demands this places on a continuous production process, further optimisation, and professionalisation of logistics is necessary.

Digitalisation and integration of processes help us to optimise logistics throughout the chain and to raise the service level to our labels, shops and customers. Sanne Oosterhoff, Group Operations Director

Sanne Oosterhoff, Group Operations Director: “Digitalisation and integration of processes help us to optimise logistics throughout the chain and to raise the service level to our labels, shops, and customers. The chance of error in the logistics processes is greatly reduced, while we increase the independence of our employees. We relieve them of unnecessary, manual tasks. Moreover, we are making better use of the capacity of our warehouses, which directly contributes to our sustainability goals. In this way, we as a platform are better prepared for future innovations, for people, and for the planet.”
