A fundamental contributor and facilitator within most distribution networks, warehouses are responsible for the execution of a variety of roles well beyond simply storing and handling pallets of goods.
Widely traditionally used for a mixture of manufacturing, storage, and distribution purposes; in recent years the growth of online sales and the expansion of many companies into foreign markets have brought new challenges to warehouse operations.
Resulting in increased level single-item-picking, greater involvement in ‘value adding’ tasks such as configuration and customisation, and more returns handling, contributes to a requirement for better management and maintenance of well-established methods to design warehouse solutions and to increase capacity and productivity within existing operations.
Go Supply Chain’s warehouse consultants bring experience of a large number of warehouse design and warehouse improvement projects; having undertaken warehouse consultancy projects in many industry sectors, with clients including supermarkets, consumer goods and industrial manufacturers, automotive parts suppliers, and third-party logistics companies. Our warehouse design consultants expertise extends to the specification of storage and handling equipment, the design of operational methods and processes.
As with all our logistics consultancy projects, we take an evidence-based approach, analysing data from your systems and observing existing operations to gain a clear picture of your company’s specific requirements and constraints. We work closely with and supporting your team to ensure that the options considered and the rationale behind our recommendations are well understood.
We are entirely independent of all suppliers of systems and equipment, so we can always provide impartial advice and support, individually tailored to your businesses requirements. We are well connected in the industry so we can point clients in the right direction of potential suppliers, or run competitive tenders on our clients’ behalf.
We are able to provide benchmark productivity rates for warehouse activities and advise on the design and adoption of performance measurement regimes, best suited to your specific project requirements.
