Vasanta Logistics At All Time High For 2014


The Vasanta Group is going into 2014 on an all time high within its systems, warehouse and logistics infrastructure.

Vasanta’s logistics operation, which was recently shortlisted in the Logistics and Distribution category at the European Supply Chain Excellence Awards, has implemented a series of innovations and improvements to ensure more advanced delivery processes and further minimised damage to stock. These include the introduction of pallet collars to orders trunked to its regional cross dock sites; investment in heat wrapping technology; an improved order picking process and a reorganisation of cross-dock operations.

Vasanta Group Logistics Director John Burkill: “Constant innovation has led us into 2014 with a £40 million plus stock holding across 16,000 SKUs available for next day delivery; an industry leading 97% plus fill rate across these SKUs and an industry leading forecast and MRP Supply Chain Management system. A significant stock build at the end of 2013, together with two high capacity, flexible inbound warehouse facilities has ensured we can give our partners and resellers even greater advantage as they go into 2014.

“Our capabilities enable businesses to deal with one supplier rather than hundreds and grow their businesses by diversifying, increasing end-user loyalty and having total flexibility in order quantities.

“We will be bringing further innovation and capability to the market as the year progresses and we very much look forward to sharing this as it unfolds.”
