Two years ago we initiated contact to be considered for a rolling contract to supply PermaStripe in 3 colours. The contract was complicated. Our client is one of the world’s largest logistics operations with one of Europe’s most numerous logistics warehouses. The contract required aisle marking materials to be sent to multiple depots with continual rollouts. We achieved the contract within a short period. The logistics were demanding; the orders were often issued with short lead-time requirements and often large quantities.
To achieve this, we had to ensure that not only were all aisle marking materials manufactured in time, but prepped, packed, palletised and sent to the correct location also. Once this was initially achieved, we had to ensure the system was in place and regulated for repeat orders to be executed regularly and efficiently with no errors.
We successfully obtained this contract, and still supply the Company with aisle marking materials today. Our preparation going into this contract has benefit us in the long run, ensuring the orders can be prepped and shipped with minimal effort, guaranteeing future custom with them.
Problem: Multiple delivery locations, short lead-times.
Solution: Heskins ensured that all delivery dates were achieved to the multiple sites.
