Storage and Fulfilment Services

Storage and Fulfilment is the safe and secure storage of goods ready to deliver to the customer in a reasonable time by the appropriate methods. A proper inventory of the goods being stored is maintained and times of delivery and drop-offs are recorded. There are a few different storage types. Bin storage is suited more to retail outlets or spare parts and or accessories. These bins are low level as the turn-a-round on the goods is quite quick and easy access is required. Freestanding shelving is another option and this is ideal for e-fulfilment or secure document storage. Freestanding shelving normally has an element of racked storage, with everything being clearly labelled for ease. Bulk storage is the perfect storage option for slow moving goods that are not determined by stock rotation. The storage area can be fully utilised, as the goods can be stacked. Storage and Fulfilment is ideal for businesses that are just starting to trade and who are looking for cost effective storage and distribution options with flexibility to suit their business demands. Customers who trade on-line will benefit from this service as their goods can be stored, picked, packed and distributed once the order has been completed.
