"Given Picnic's rapid growth and ever changing conditions, I'm currently working on constantly defining our inbound strategy to create an optimal inbound network. Picnic's inbound network consists of multiple streams where suppliers either deliver directly to our warehouses or suppliers deliver to our own distribution center which then supplies our warehouses. To define the optimal network that provides the freshest groceries to our customers at lowest cost, I built an analytical model which simulates volume streams and allows me to find opportunities to further improve the status-quo", Cindy Chhay-Lagast
