The wine logistics company has grown from a capacity of 10 million bottles a year in 2007 to 40 million bottles in 2016. Our turnover also increased by 170% in 7 years. Thanks to this increased strength and skills, we are able to offer our customers a high-performance service in our businesses: wine-winery, bottling, logistics and sales platform.
- The winery (€ 3 million):
Thanks to the installation of new tanks, we now have a capacity of 770,000 hectolitres of wine per year. We are certified in agri-food (BRC, IFS, Organic Farming) so the offer to our customers is complete. Our laboratory specialized in wine analysis will also soon be certified Cofrac (French Accreditation Committee).
- The packaging chain (€ 3.5 million):
The expansion of the packaging hall was carried out in order to have a suitable storage area for the wine. We also invested in a new high-performance bottling line with a rate of 8,000 bottles /h. It incorporates all the latest technologies for rinsing, corking, bottling of the wine, etc.
- Logistics (€ 10 million):
We redesigned the shipping dock and built a safe for the grands crus. This 6,000 m² storage space is dedicated to the great wines. It is fully secured with access controls and video surveillance. In addition, the safe is RFSE certified (Suspensive Export Tax Regime) and is in the process of obtaining an Authorized Economic Operator title for all export-related matters.
Investments have also made it possible to have an optimal traceability of the wine throughout the supply chain, thanks to radio warehouse management tools (portable terminals, barcodes …).
- Teams training (€ 100,000 per year):
Every year since 2009, Sicsoe invests in the internal and external training of its teams. In 2015, 98% of employees were trained.
Since 2011, we have recruited managers from the industrial sector for logistics, production, quality and maintenance.
- The laboratory :
We have allowed one of our oenologists to develop skills. He now accompanies our customers for optimum wine shipping in 90 countries.
- Boiler room:
A metrologist position was created for one of our oenologists. He is in charge of customs control and fraud protection. A job that is done as close as possible with the administration, in order to apply the legislation as well as possible.
