Once we have you set up in our system, we are ready to receive your products at our Virtual Logistics warehouse.
Either you or we can arrange the incoming deliveries.
Receipt & Inspection
Upon receipt of goods from your suppliers, we check the items against the delivery note. We report to you any discrepancies or breakages.
At this point, we also barcode the products and enter them into our warehouse management system. This ensures that they can be found quickly when an order comes in.
As per our SLAs, all goods received are inspected, booked in and put away in the appropriate location within 3 hours.
Supply Chain Managment
If you wish, we can also report delivery discrepancies back to the supplier and organise replacements or repairs.
We also have many years of experience of importing, so can liaise with overseas suppliers and freight companies on your behalf.
In addition, we can source products from international companies and organise the appropriate certification.
For an example, see our Learning by Questions case study.
Each product is stored in our secure and fully-insured warehouse in Lancashire.
Depending on the size of the item, it is put away in either barcoded ‘pick bin’ or bulk storage locations.
The warehouse environment is controlled, so we monitor: temperature, moisture, light and vibration. This ensures that products are kept within optimum ranges.
Storage pricing is generally charged per square metre per month. However, this does vary per client, depending on how quickly stock moves.
In addition to environmental management, we have processes in place to prevent perishable goods from going out of date.
We also perform daily random pick bin stock checks. This ensures that all expected inventory is present and correct.
Please contact us for any other storage or stock management requirements, as we may be able to accommodate them.
