Recommendations - Long Term
Customer orders are compiled in the finished good warehouses.
Relevant distributors then collect the orders and transport them to their regional warehouses.
Orders are then stored until delivery.
- Part of logistics strategy outsourced to basic service providers for collection, warehousing and distribution.
- Cross docking and break bulk warehousing.
Material Handling and Packaging
- Orders are packaged and pallet-wrapped in the Dublin warehouse.
- Fast transportation mode so low inventory levels, try to match large incoming shipments with smaller outgoing deliveries.
