Aral: Less out-of-stocks with new product presentation

Aral AG and POS Tuning, the manufacturer of the pushfeed system, together with partners from the shopfitting and tobacco industries, have renewed the tobacco sales area at more than 1,000 Aral petrol stations. The goals: optimized customer orientation and less out-of-stocks. 

Aral has redesigned the entire area behind the tobacco counter at more than 1,000 of its stores. Instead of conventional metal shelves with price rails, glass shelves and pushfeed systems from the Bad Salzuflen-based manufacturer are used. This enabled Aral to install 4 more shelves and update the placement: Cigarettes, loose tobacco and cigars are now presented in 3 blocks.

It was important for the BP Group to keep pace with its competitors in terms of product range width and appearance and also to reduce out-of-stocks and handling costs. In this way, Aral increased its turnover, expanded its range by 40 percent and reduced out of stocks, as the expanded space now offers more space for the fast-moving items.  

To transfer the concept to other countries and categories, Aral plans to completely eliminate out-of-stocks in the future by installing stock beacons. The "Neoalto" platform of the POS Tuning business unit of the same name can notify shop operators of low stock levels via smartphone and automatically re-order items - the platform is integrated into the merchandise management system. In the future, the effects of product pushfeed systems in other categories will also be measured.

POS TUNING and ARAL report on a successful multi-partner project

2019 02 28 multipartnerprojektAt this year's Annual Conference of Trade and Change in Gas Stations and Convenience Shops, Kristin Kolbe-Schade from POS TUNING and Carsten Biermann from Aral reported on a successful tobacco project which they implemented together with other partners from the shopfitting and tobacco industry. The entire area behind the counter was renovated and it was converted from conventional metal shelves with price rails to high-quality glass shelves from POS TUNING including their pushfeed systems. This meant that 4 more shelves could be installed, which of course offered the customer considerably more choice. Compared to the competition, Aral wanted to be at least as well and as broadly positioned in the product range as it was in the orientation and appearance for the customer. Further goals were the reduction of out of stocks and handling effort in the shop.


Digital POS TUNING from Neoalto

Despite all the discussion about the future of stationary retailing, two of its advantages are undisputed: customers appreciate the haptic shopping experience and the immediate availability of the desired products (BITKOM study 2018).
