Pot and gardenware supplier Woodlodge has heavily invested in its warehouse and operations facilities to increase its offering to retail customers.
The improvements include new racking, painted protective flooring and upgraded lighting. The company has also increased the number of product bays, improving stock capacity for the constant flow of incoming stock.
Additionally, the new layout has made product identification and logistics easier. Faster selling items have been grouped together for a smoother despatch, whilst the additional space has helped to improve the efficiencies of the warehouse picking team.
Michael Wooldridge, Woodlodge managing director, said: “With an increase in sales turnover of 40% over the past four years, the upgrades were needed to keep up with customer demand, whilst also ensuring complete efficiency during peak season.
“The new upgrades – though simple in their implementation – mean we can increase the product range we keep on the shelf, as well as creating a safer and more welcoming work environment for our staff.”
