The distribution network also includes 30 wholesale points located throughout the country.

In 2010 TIM decided to implement a WMS (Warehouse Management System) class system offered by Mantis(Logistics Vision Suite - LVS). The decision was based on requirements identified during the analysis of TIMstrategy for the coming years. The LVS implemented system, automates all standard warehouse operations on pallet, box, and piecewise merchandise handling units, supports the cable and wire handling equipment, sorting unit, automatic conveyors, and three - layered mezzanine zone for small dimension articles. The system cooperates with an automatic stacker for drum storage and is also integrated with rack zone operating in Pick by Light system. During the implementation, Mantis experts encountered a big diversity of storage systems, processes and articles, both in the Logistics Center and in the other branches. The key to the success was intelligent customization allowing matching the software capabilities with the customer's needs.

Through the implementation of Logistics Vision, TIM managed to improve a number of processes on specific stages of the supply chain in a quick and effective manner. LVS system provided the management with the necessary data required for a rational business policy, which in turn allowed improving not only the product storage and distribution management, but also the work of persons employed both in the Logistics Center and the branch warehouses.
