The back office services includes: financing and products insurance, orders set up, letter of credit opening, suppliers payments, import and custom clearance, order preparation and delivery, invoicing and debt collection.
CARREFOUR (still SODILOG main client) starts his integration plan : most of his logistics activities for textile products will be managed in his automated warehouse located in VERT SAINT DENIS (Paris area).
To provide the means to meet the growing demand, SODILOG doubles its storage area by adding the premises of the former CENTRA plant in Colmar. SODILOG now has a total storage area of 40,000 m2 in the industrial area of Colmar.
The choice of its location
SODILOG acquires the former CORA supermarket in Colmar and installs its offices there as well as its storage area.
The supermarket joints business requires large storage areas. SODILOG operates with 10 different warehouses in the Colmar area for a total surface of 60 000 square meters.
The supermarket joints business peaks up. Besides those sales SODILOG also Ttakes care of basic logistics and order preparation services for new clients: SFI, DIPLODOCUS, HOLIPROM whose aim is to import and distribute products on a given territory
CARREFOUR (SODILOG main client) faces a large external growth: they buy direct competitors such as EUROMARCHE, SODIN, MONTLAUR and several MAMMOUTH stores. This growth benefits to SODILOG total sales. It also brings business opportunities with AUCHAN, LECLERC, CORA, CASINO and SYSTEME U who also request SODILOG for services. New business needs leads SODILOG to diversify her service offer: the company is now a large service provider of the main supermarket joints. The products portfolio includes textile/garments, shoes, underwear and linen.
Since 1986, SODILOG has never stopped to adjust and improve her service offer based on her clients business requirements.
