GENERAL WAREHOUSING

Definition:

A general warehouse is a commercial building for storage of non-temperature-controlled goods. Warehouses are typically used by manufacturers, importers, exporters, wholesalers, logistics businesses, customs, etc.

We provide our clients with access to over 200,000 sq. ft of accredited Central UK warehousing further enhanced by a global network of International partner warehouses across the globe.

Within our general warehouse offering services include container receiving and bulk warehouse storage, ably supported by a whole host of value-added support services including re-work and kitting. Our present-day multi-user warehouse “supermarkets” will typically house more 25,000 SKU's and more than 20 million units of stock of varying commodities across the various segments of health, beauty, well being, lifestyle, fashion and electronics.

Our range of general warehousing support is diverse and includes:  

Container Unloading – Palletised and Handball

With dry and secure dock level unloading as standard, your containers are unloaded in next to no time. With access to ride on pallet trucks (PPT) for palletised goods or a dedicated handball team for loose carton receipts we aim to avoid those costly container detention fees.

Storage – Palletised and Bulk Storage

With thousands of racked and floor pallet spaces your pallets are securely stored and optimised for handling.

Pick and Pack – By Unit, Master Carton or Full Pallet

Pick and Pack – Per unit, master carton or full pallet
Trade orders are accurately and logically assembled linked to a pre-determined order file and specific customer requirements. The goods are securely packed, machine wrapped and transferred to the despatch area for onward delivery.

Returns Management – Opportunity knocks

Our “right first time” approach to warehousing helps to keep returns to an absolute minimum. In the event of a return we have a number of options available including pre-paid returns or arranging uplift. Upon return to site we undertake a rigorous QC inspection as part of the re-stocking process.

Top Tip:

With warehouse rent, rates, staff costs etc at an all-time high outsourcing to a third-party logistics company (3PL) is a great way to negate rising costs and scale through shared use.
