Coop: Data Analyst

Sep 07, 2023

Oslo, Oslo, Norway

Join Coop’s Supply Chain team as a Data Analyst and enhance our operations with your valuable insights!

Coop is owned by 2 million co-owners. This sets us apart from competitors and is reflected in our vision – choosing Coop should be rewarding. Ownership offers the opportunity to influence and to share in the profits generated. 150 years after the establishment of the first consumer cooperative, Coop is still working towards the same goal – rooted in the same values. The cooperative societies collectively own the umbrella organization, Coop Norge SA, which is responsible for Coop's joint procurement, wholesale and logistics operations, chain management, brand-building, and membership program.

Supply Chain at Coop

Coop Norge introduced our Supply Chain department in August 2022. The department consists of four main areas: inbound supply management, forecasting & replenishment, store ordering, and ordering solutions. The department was established to bring together expertise and ensure the implementation of inventory management from supplier to store based on store sales forecasts (Multi-Echelon).

The Supply Chain department is integrated within the broader Logistics Department at Coop Norge, which is renowned as one of Norway's premier logistics entities. Logistics operations are at the core of the flow of goods - from supplier to warehouse and store. Our logistics operations consist of a fully automated logistics center at Gardermoen and 5 local warehouse units; together with the transportation operations, this forms the backbone of our value chain.
