Initial, the hygiene services company, has chosen Norbert Dentressangle to provide storage, inventory management and order picking.
Dentressangle is responsible for the receipt of product from Dudley Industries, Initial’s manufacturing division, and other European suppliers and the picking of telesales and on-line orders placed via Initial Direct, as well as bulk orders from Initial service engineers and wholesale customers, both in the UK and overseas.
It is responsible for picking 150 orders per day, from a single unit up to full pallets.
The operation uses a dedicated area at Dentressangle’s shared-user facility in Tamworth.
The deal consolidates the activities of three former Initial warehouses, removing duplication of inventory and resources and providing a cost-effective, flexible and scalable solution.
