  • External Storage - on secure warehousing site / 24hr CCTV internal / external monitored / hi-tech alarms / manned, etc.
  • Returns centre warehouse (including Contract Packing & Recycling).
  • Groupage warehousing - enabling cost-effective full consignment despatches.

  • Fixed-rate goods handling charge (RHD) - either including or excluding additional activities as preferred.

It is important to choose the right type of storage method for the variation of goods you need us to handle - we are able to offer sound advice based on 50 years in the industry. The advice will ensure the right method of handling & storage is used to keep condition and accessibility as required, our unique costing system will provide the most cost-effective route to your benefit, e.g:-

  • Very Narrow Aisle (VNA) racked pallet / carton storage @ economic weekly rates - perfect for storage of non-stackable / high-value goods - or where direct fast order-pick access is required.
  • Area Rental - Warehouse area rental for block stack (FIFO option) @ economic monthly rates - for standard palletised goods, cages, post-pallets, totes, large machinery, over-size / special consignments, etc.. - where direct fast pick access is less of a priority.

Typical value-added service options - often an essential ingredient necessary to reap the core benefits of outsourced logistics services - include:-

  • Order-pick & pack operations
  • Container de-stuffing / re-stuffing (loading bay)
  • Multi-product re-group / re-palletise
  • Cover-wrapping / shrink-wrapping
  • Secure strapping (pallets & container loads)
  • Labelling / re-labelling or other ‘clean-room' operations
  • Quality systems, exceptions & check-in procedures
  • Proven Inventory Control & reporting systems
  • Transport Management

Distribution: through our 3rd party carefully chosen haulage contractors we can arrange movement of goods at competitive rates from next day samples to full vehicles - providing a single reliable management & accounting source
