Tesco Transportation Management Tool
Tesco, a leading retail company in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary, grappled with warehouse inefficiencies from numerous low-quality and decentralized tools spread across seven warehouses serving over 550 stores.
Tesco, the UK retail giant with a significant presence in the Czech Republic, Slovakia, and Hungary, faced a challenge. Their warehouse and transport operations were plagued by inefficiencies from many low-quality and decentralized tools scattered across seven warehouses serving over 550 stores. Whirr Crew stepped in with a mission: introducing a centralized GOT system to revolutionize Tesco's warehousing operations.
The primary objective was to develop a robust application to simplify, centralize and standardize across all CE distribution centres. This application would cover both inbound and outbound processes, offer fleet tracking based on prepared transport plans, and provide comprehensive reporting tailored to the specific business needs of warehouses and transport planning teams in three countries. The challenge was about creating a tool and ensuring it met a multinational retail giant's diverse and complex requirements.
Expected User Adoption
Our team, equipped with expertise in Java, Spring Boot and React.js, started with MVC solution development, which, after successful demos, has been approved by the Tesco team. Currently, the team focuses on developing features covering requirements from 3 different countries.
