Monkfield Nutrition has been a market leader in the breeding of live reptile food for over 25 years. During this time, they have set up an extensive reptile captive breeding programme, the largest European rodent farm, and introduced a full range of reptile equipment including innovative own brand products. Monkfield supplies around 1000 retailers throughout the UK.
Following increased customer service demands and rapid growth, Monkfield Nutrition acquired a new operational site. Monkfield approached Gideon Hillman Consulting (GH) to ensure that the new warehouse was optimised for future requirements. The Logistics Specialists at Gideon Hillman Consulting provided Monkfield with an independent review of operational processes, including goods receipt, storage, pick/pack, despatch and returns and value added flows.
Following their review, to optimise Monkfield’s new warehouse facility, the Supply Chain and Warehouse Specialist Consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting, provided Monkfield with draft CAD drawings of the optimised facility to be presented for approval and review to ensure no commercial or operational constraints prevailed.
Gideon Hillman Consulting enabled Monkfield to optimise their layouts, workflows and operational procedures; providing recommendations for storage requirements and equipment costs; whilst simultaneously considering growth projections for the agreed planning horizon.
