Tasked with supplying over 2,100 Netto and Intermarché points of sale, the food logistics activity of Groupement Les Mousquetaires makes it the 3rd French actor in the Logistics sector.
ITM LAI: AT THE HEART OF GROUPEMENT LES MOUSQUETAIRES' FOOD LOGISTICS
Getting products to the points of sale of the food stores located throughout France: that is the mission of ITM LAI (Logistique Alimentaire International—International Food Logistics).
With some 7,400 employees, this subsidiary of Groupement Les Mousquetaires is in charge of getting supply from international, national and regional suppliers, managing stock and then getting it to the 1,840 Intermarché and 302 Netto stores.
Integrated transport facilities
For the transport of food products, the subsidiary of Groupement Les Mousquetaires uses the know-how and efficiency of an “Établissement International de Transport”, an International Transport Establishment (EIT) and eight Regional Transport Establishments, or “Établissements Régionaux de Transport” (ERT) as they are called in French.
More than 1,600 semi-trailers ply the roads all year so that each customer can find the article they desire at the lowest possible price in our stores.
36 logistics centres dedicated to Intermarché and Netto store brands
The heart of this logistics chain beats in Bondoufle, in the Essonne department, where the headquarters of ITM LAI are located. It manages 36 logistics bases that supply the Intermarché and Netto stores with dry, fresh and frozen fruits and vegetables.
These logistics bases have a total storage volume of 1.2 million m², centres through which 889 million packages pass. Flows of this magnitude make ITM LAI one of the major players in the logistics sector in France.
The HR policy
Currently 7,600 employees work for ITM LAI (subsidiary of the Group dedicated to the logistics activity for the two main food store brands: Intermarché and Netto) throughout France.
Training and passing on knowledge
Sharing and passing on knowledge constitute the third main orientation of the HR policy. Constantly seeking out new talent, our subsidiaries have decided to take advantage of work/study programs. The Group has set up partnerships with professional training schools and organisations with a view to being a company that provides training, in which the students are accompanied throughout their career by involved mentors.
Each newcomer in one of the Group’s logistics subsidiaries follows an integration program. And who better to pass on the know-how than an experienced co-worker? For this reason, a mentoring system has been set up, one that involves newly hired workers and more experienced ones. The senior workers are regarded as a real source of expertise and skills for our company.
Equality, cohesion, efficiency
Equal treatment between men and women is a source of major concern, and remains as such throughout professional life. The combination of men and women and ensuring an equal footing promotes social cohesion and complementarity within the teams.
With a score of 89 out of 100 on the gender equality index, ITM LAI’s score puts the company among the highest rated companies in France in terms of professional equality !
This result reflects the HR commitments that we have had in place for several years.
As a reminder, the index takes the following into account:
-Pay for men and women
-Raises after maternity leave
-The presence of women among the top earners in the company.
Diversified career paths within the company
Logistics professions are constantly changing thanks to the ongoing modernisation of the processes. Workers in the logistics sector must be able to deal with these changes, and to help them doing so, our subsidiaries adapt the skills development plans and training programs.
Professional advancement also goes through rich and diverse training paths within the company.
By making it possible for employees to progress thanks to a career path that awards certificates and degrees, the Mousquetaires logistics contributes to know-how and improves performance. It also makes it possible to develop the employability of the workers and thus to promote mobility.
