Warehouse management system provider Access Group will take the opportunity to discuss its latest research at next year’s Logistics Link South Exhibition.
Access Group recently conducted a survey of 132 warehouse operators, across manufacturers, wholesalers, and 3PL warehouse service providers.
The results were collected by Redshift Research for Access’ recent whitepaper, Space and stock: the financial frontier.
The study revealed that many businesses without WMS are missing out on a “relatively easy” route to reduced cost and improved service, because they are unable to optimise stock levels and space usage.
“Companies who optimise their stock levels often discover significant volumes of stock that they didn’t know they had available,” said supply chain divisional sales manager for Access Group, Rob Hodgson.
“When this has been cleaned up they may find they no longer need to expand their warehousing space. And this can mean a serious cost saving.”
“The survey highlights that regardless of size, companies need to go far beyond their current thinking to discover the benefits of optimised stock and warehouse space.”
Co-located with the new Port to Shelf Exhibiton, Logistics Link South will be taking place on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th February 2014, at Sandown Park Racecourse, in Esher.
Visitors will find Access Group on stand 69.
