Their operation was split between two geographically separate sites
• Office space in one location
• Third party warehouse space at a location approximately 10 miles away
The fast moving nature of the operation and separate locations often made the checking of goods difficult and would result in different staff making multiple journeys between the offices and warehouse which would waste valuable time that is better used on other key tasks.
The Distribution element of the operation was split between various transport suppliers and was booked on an ad hoc basis.
• Warehousing services
• Office space on the same site
• All Distribution and Haulage requirements
This resulted in a more efficient operation where JM&D Ltd staffs time was not absorbed into non core tasks.
This approach also provided considerable cost savings to JM&D Ltd.
