So you’re running a successful business and have a large client base to boot, but what now? Orders are coming in thick and fast and suddenly you find it’s becoming harder and harder to keep up with demand.
You need a fluid storage and retrieval system in place right away, but it’s a massive undertaking, and you still need to run the business from the front line. So how can you make it happen?
True, you could use your own staff, or employ additional bodies to help out, hire an empty warehouse and fill it with the most up to date storage and retrieval technology, but this all takes time and effort, not to mention a considerable cost.
But there is another way.
Established warehouse and distribution companies like ours are ready to go when you need us.
We have the experience, the equipment and more importantly, the trained professionals to oversee the whole process.
It’s always easy to forget the little details that make professional warehousing companies so good at what they do. Protecting your stock for instance is just as important as having a solid storage and retrieval system in place, because damaged and unsalable stock is good for no-one.
This can be done by using the right packaging materials for the product, or even something as simple as loading the goods onto transport correctly. Inexperience in these small matters can lead to costly damages, which could have otherwise been easily avoided.
Warehouse management systems are a must!
Having the right storage management system in place is crucial. Trying to sift through lots of different products in uniform containers or boxes can be the ultimate headache if you’re looking for a specific product.
Warehouses use a variety of different management systems involving appropriate labelling, scanners and other technology to make sure your stock can be found quickly and delivered on time.
When you hand over all of these jobs to a professional warehousing company, you are not only saving yourself money but freeing up valuable time which could be spent being channelled into your business and maintaining those all important customer relationships.
