Our modern warehousing complex sits within a secured and CCTV-monitored compound that is situated in a low-crime area. Conveniently located two minutes from Junction 28 of the M6, we provide easy, marshalled access for devanning from vehicles ranging from 3.5T through to articulated 40’ trailers.
All floors are sealed, racking systems are regularly tested and we use an all-electric fleet of lift trucks to maintain a clean working environment.
From pallets to pick, we make full use of our software systems and control stock at location level. This means that rather than grouping your stock by manufacturer or category, we use forecasting algorithms to determine where items should be stored - i.e. your fastest-selling items are moved into the most accessible locations.
This not only speeds up a pickers’ journey through the warehouse and ensures system accuracy, but also enables us to ‘compress’ your stockholdings and reduce storage costs.
We have over 3,000 pallet locations and in excess of 20,000 pick positions available, which enables you to expand or contract your warehouse storage requirements quickly and easily. If you’re an eCommerce or mail order business on the up, you can store a wider product range. During leaner times or off-peak, simply reduce your capacity to bring your costs down.
We are able to take delivery of containers, LCL ('less than container load'), pallets, cartons or individual items. The nature and volume of the product presented will determine the lowest-cost and highest-yield storage solution. We capture item weights and dimensions then mate them to the most appropriate types of location, based on the expected rate of stock turn.
Our flexible storage solution enables us to configure shelving to meet your needs, whatever they are. For very small items, we use parts bins from 105mm to 455mm in depth to ensure easy access for stowage and pick operatives. Higher-value products such as jewellery pieces are kept in our secured storage area, which features entry controls and 24/7 HD CCTV monitoring.
A majority of stock is located in standard racking or the high-density picking system, and is particularly suited to fast-moving items. Our handheld scanning technology and stock-compression disciplines ensure that space is fully utilised with multiple SKUs in single bin locations. Each picking bin is clearly labelled with a location reference and barcode, and will be accessible from ground level.
Slower-moving or larger-sized stock that is not received in bulk can be stored in our high pick locations. Accessed using 'wave' picking trucks, these shelved areas are 900mm deep, 600mm high, and up to 1200mm wide. High pick is often used in conjunction with shelved and bulk areas to ensure that the highest possible proportion of orders can be fulfilled from ‘pickable’ bins.
Our racking system is 900mm deep, and all bulk stock is stored on ‘four-way’ 1200mm x 1000mm pallets. The Very Narrow Aisle format (often referred to as ‘VNA’), and height of our warehouse, enables us to provide dense bulk storage up to 6m with a maximum pallet height of 1500mm. Pallets are moved using a fleet of zero-emission Bendi B320 trucks, each of which has a reach of 9m and a nominal lift capacity of 2000kg.
