Industry professionals from Hotel Chocolat, British Telecom, and Toshiba have confirmed their visit to this year’s Logistics Link South- presenting the ideal networking opportunity for a range of organisations.
Senior logistics and supply chain members of staff from Jordans Cereals, Samsung, Caffe Nero Group, Barclays, Johnson & Johnson, Halfords, Spirit Pub Company, and Jaeger, will also be attending the show.
Co-located with the new Port to Shelf Exhibition, Logistics Link South will be taking place on Tuesday 11th and Wednesday 12th February 2014, at Sandown Park Racecourse, in Esher.
Attendees will also get the chance to put their (imaginary) football boots on for a live penalty shootout with Dynamic Storage Systems at the event.
The company will be hosting a competition at its stand, to highlight its total project management capabilities.
DSS specialises in the design, supply, and installation of ultra-efficient storage and warehouse solutions.
It is currently working with firms, such as Coca Cola, New Look Retailers, Greene King, and Travis Perkins.
“Customers can rely on our proven expertise in a comprehensive range of systems and products from racking and shelving to mezzanine floors, live storage and automation equipment,” said managing director, Howard Gillard.
“And in this World Cup year, we thought it would be a good idea to let people know that our wide experience means they are in safe hands.”
The company is offering potential customers at Link South a five-point plan, focused on reducing operating costs and improving profitability.
“I hope that our penalty shootout competition encourages visitors to not only have some fun but also realise that DSS offers a truly ‘safe hands’ service,” added Gillard.
Warehouse management system provider Access Group will also be present at the exhibition, to discuss its latest research.
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.”
Visitors will find Access Group on stand 69.
