Changing the dynamics in warehousing
Wincanton has helped General Dynamics UK, a leading prime contractor, to increase storage capacity, reduce costs and relocate one of its stores into the Bicester defence store, managed by Wincanton.
Key benefits delivered include:
- Significantly increased capacity through new racking installation at Bicester, providing the storage needed for an additional 2,900 pallets.
- Reduced costs for transport as removed necessity to move goods between stores.
- A flexible warehousing solution providing scalability for seasonal peaks and future demands.
- A 100% increase in productivity through the reconfiguration of the picking process, leading to reduced pick times.
General Dynamics UK now has a robust and scalable operation which can expand quickly at minimal cost as the business grows into the future.
