A flexible, individual approach through shared services
Through our shared user warehousing and distribution sites, we provide all the benefits of shared services to create economies of scale and improve service levels and reduce logistics costs. In collaboration with clients, we streamline inventory management, procurement and distribution processes. We cater for organisations demanding high security and high quality assurance through our shared user warehouse.
Our centrally located sites are perfect for national carriers, allowing clients to offer next day, door-to-door deliveries with late cut-off times.
Delivering an accurate and efficient supply chain solution
Our two sites located in Hams Hall, Birmingham, UK provide more than 30,000sqm of storage space and are fitted with contemporary systems and technologies. Our pick-by-voice technology and radio data terminals enable our teams to deliver fast, accurate despatch and respond rapidly to major stock movements.
We recognise that complying with industry standards and operating state-of-the art facilities is critical for supporting our clients’ success. We start by understanding our client’s needs and the markets they operate in and achieve accreditations and certifications accordingly. For example, we hold the MHRA Wholesale Dealer’s Licence for healthcare, authorising the storage and distribution of medicinal products with dangerous goods trained staff on site, and the TAPA ‘A’ standard for storing and handling high value goods.
Optimum location helps to improve customer satisfaction
Centrally located distribution centres allow late carrier cut off times and for next day delivery.
Provide the flexibility to manage changes in demand
Our shared user facilities and technology provide the flexibility and agility needed to effectively manage peaks and troughs in demand.
We provide supply chain know-how and infrastructure geared to the healthcare sector, from cold chain management to direct delivery, supported by the relevant accreditations.
