B&Q Case Study

In the United Kingdom and Ireland, B&Q operates 359 stores with more than 40,000 great-value products all under one roof. B&Q is one of the main retail brands under Kingfisher plc, Europe’s leading home improvement retail group. B&Q strives to offer everything its customers need to successfully achieve their home improvement and do-it-yourself (DIY) projects. The retailer worked with JDA to transform its logistics network by using an automated warehouse solution to increase inventory visibility and improve stock availability at its stores. B&Q realized the following results:

  • Reduced costs across the logistics network due to increased efficiency and productivity
  • Improved inventory accuracy with real-time information and clear visibility of orders
  • Increased product availability at its stores
