The Dawleys management team aimed to grow the business, especially around the fulfilment services, and decided to enlist support from The Supply Chain Consulting Group (SCCG). Dawleys wanted to optimise the warehouse and fulfilment operations, by consolidating two separate warehousing units, to ensure that proposed growth plans were achieved.
The SCCG team of Specialist Supply Chain and Logistics Consultants reviewed Dawley’s current operations to understand their consolidation requirements and develop the future facility. This review allowed SCCG to determine the facility sizing, properly develop optimised layouts, workflows and operational procedures.
SCCG provided Dawleys with final CAD layouts and costed implementation plans for the current and projected requirements (over the agreed planning horizon) for the final specifications to be agreed and implemented by Dawleys.
“The warehouse and fulfilment centre is up and running and was an absolute godsend in the summer/autumn when we were deluged in orders for one of our clients…we coped brilliantly, and it wouldn’t have been possible with our old set up.” Director – Dawleys Logistics
