Decathlon Visit

The Operations & Supply Chain Management Club celebrated the end of Term 3 by visiting the fulfillment center of Decathlon, the world’s largest sports retailer and online sports store.

After taking our last exam of Term 3, a group of 20 students met for a cava toast before heading from Sant Cugat campus to the fulfillment center by bus. There was an atmosphere of excitement and relief after finishing the first year’s courses, but also because of the participant’s interest in witnessing how a top company in Sports Business operates. When we arrived to the facility, one of the fulfillment center’s manager was kindly waiting to welcome us at the reception and briefly provide an overview of their supply chain before we embarked on a tour of the fulfillment center. We were pleasantly surprised in the way in which Decathlon reflects its mission to make sports accessible to the greatest number of people throughout its current distribution model.

Danone Visit

Despite my obsessive refreshing of the Google Maps app, the highway continued to resemble more of a parking lot than a route of transportation. This was the first event that I planned for the Operations Supply Chain club, and I, and the other 5 people in my cab, was going to be late. While I tried to distract myself from my tardiness and imminent car sickness, I quickly warned the cabs filled with 14 of my peers behind me to take a different route, unfortunately, one of them received the message too late. Luckily we planned our transportation with some buffers rather than ‘just in time’ and we all made it without having to use the excuse of Spanish time. Read the rest of this entry »
