Benefit from our expertise:
Using your own ‘in-house’ logistics strategy may not only cost you more financially but it also will cost you in time, and potentially credibility. Not having the right expertise will mean your logistics strategy will not be as efficient and streamlined as it could be.
Having P W Gates Distribution Ltd as a third-party logistics provider working in partnership with your company can result in significant savings, whilst increasing efficiency. This is a result of us analysing your logistics, inventory, management and transportation needs and being able to determine the best approach to meet the needs of your company.
Warehouse Management System Features
Multi-site networked WMS provides fully visibility of stock in real-time, in whichever warehouse it is held.
Wireless handheld barcode scanning enhances our real-time stock level reporting, physical locations and statuses for full traceability. This complements our end-to-end scanning of goods prepared for despatch up to the final delivery to your customers.
Accurate invoicing is built in for charging by the week or month as you prefer, with invoices emailed to save paper and time.
The customer portal allows you to check your own stock levels and produce various reports, whether current or historical.
All paper documents received, such as supplier delivery notes, carrier CMR’s and picklists etc. are scanned against the relevant goods-in or goods-out movement and can be viewed online.
