We carry out warehouse audits ensuring best practice and to ensure optimisation of labour, space and equipment.

Our warehouse audits include analysis of storage and mechanical equipment used, labour deployment and productivity, systems use and procedures.

The audits involve shadowing key personnel and ‘walking’ through and recording each process within the warehouse operation from goods in through to despatch.

Any unnecessary steps or unproductive work will be highlighted during the process. ‘Quick fixes’ will be highlighted immediately and assistance given with implementation of new procedures.

A full audit report will be presented and discussed with management at the end of the process and a cost benefit analysis produced. Implementation assistance will also be provided.

3PL (Third party logistics operations)
In an era of increased outsourcing we also undertake audits of 3PL (Third-party logistics) contracts to ensure value for money.

This can include re-tendering the business to provide a benchmark against other providers or utilising a database of costs which we have built up over the years to ensure the competitiveness of the current supplier. As most of our staff and Associates have worked in the 3PL sector they are very experienced in this type of project.

One could say we are ‘poachers turned gamekeeper’!

Health and Safety
We have access to Associate consultancies such as Labyrinth who undertake Health and Safety audits and provide advice on Dangerous Goods transport and storage and workplace transport matters.
