Managing the distribution supply chain through seasonal peaks and establishing a disaster recovery capability. Given the round-the-clock nature of internet retail and fulfilment, our client needed a customer-focused, flexible, supplier that adapted its processes and systems to their needs. They wanted a supplier who needed to scale-up and down through seasonal peaks, incorporate our client’s technology within its operation and work seamlessly with the client’s time.
From a standing start, Sprint mirrored the company’s Distribution Centre by replicating the technology and systems in its Peterborough site. Establishing a complex round-the-clock shift pattern as well as strictly adhering to our client’s quality and security standards.
With the careful implementation and system integration, our client has established a landmark outsourced fulfilment capability working alongside its own workflows, providing a solution to e-commerce fulfilment, which is now commonplace in the e-commerce age.
