From implementing our store warehouse management system, taking over their warehouse operations in Chelyabinsk, and through our data analytics study, we were able to demonstrate in theory and practice that Ahlers can look after their regional supply chain.


By working closely together, scenarios were developed, which enable them to explore new territories and increase their market share. Since 2011, Ahlers Russia has partnered with a global manufacturer of paints and lacquers for decorative paints and industrial coatings. They are a major international player, serving several international markets, with a significant presence in the Russian Federation.

With the Novosibirsk center operational and improving product availability, our customer was able to refocus their efforts on improving regional market share for their consumer and industrial products there.
