The company

Founded in 1964 in Como and has been successfully operating in the large-scale retail sector for over 50 years.

The first BENNET hypermarket was opened in Lombardy, the region where the company began its consolidated growth in the following years.

Its expansion continued towards Piedmont, Emilia Romagna, Veneto, Friuli Venezia Giulia and Liguria. Currently BENNET has 73 hypermarkets distributed throughout Northern Italy.


Parapharmaceutical distribution warehouse management


The warehouse, installed at the central Bennet distribution center, contains parapharmacy products that are marketed at the point of sale. The products are stored in an air-conditioned, multi-column and multi-bay automatic tray warehouse of ZMagazzini, the Zecchetti division dedicated to automatic warehouses. Every day the operators prepare shipments for the assortment of points of sale. The WMS is configured to perform batch picking performed by warehouse operators who confirm picking operations with wearable wireless barcode readers. The picked up product is then ventilated in an order preparation buffer equipped with a put to light system. The preparation buffer, where each position corresponds to a point of sale, is equipped with spots with alphanumeric display, function buttons for the management of opening / closing packages and multi-color lamps so as to be able to manage multiple operators simultaneously, in fact each operator is associated with a color.


In addition to the obvious benefits in terms of space optimization, performance and safety given by the automatic warehouse, and the aid to the ventilation of the product taken in batch picking given by the put to light system, there is also the preservation of the material at a controlled climate and the possibility to manage the preparation of orders for each store throughout the day until the time of shipment.
