Here's an example of a huge logistical challenge we've just delivered for Europe’s largest and the world’s leading single-brand manufacturer and supplier of sanitary fittings Grohe AG.
The project - 594 individual point of sale stands installed into 265 stores nationwide including Ireland.
The products - comprising of 3 and 4 sided towers, Counter Top Tap Stands, Freestanding Tap Stands, Flushing Plates plus a selection of wall mounted display panels.
All items are stored in our secure warehouse which at its peak required a mighty 18,000 square feet.
All items were supplied flat packed from our client and where possible were assembled in-house prior to transportation.
Our logistics team comprised of 1 Project Manager, 4 fitters at base and 6 teams of 2 installers. Locations stretched from the South West nationwide to the North East.
The Outcome - The distribution and install process was completed in under 6 weeks.
Image Group Project Manager Mike Holmes said:
"These projects always seem daunting to begin with. Thousands of individual products, assembled, delivered and installed across hundreds of sites. However, we can call on a huge amount of experience which means we are able to approach national roll outs with confidence. The main factors that guarantee a successful outcome are a correct understand of the clients needs. After that, it's all about assembling the right team and careful planning of logistics. Stock intake, storage, fulfillment, transport and access on site are all crucial to making sure things are done right - first time. Grohe AG are number 1 in Europe because they set the standards that others follow. Our job is to make sure it stays that way."
By using our own experienced retail logistics team, our own transport, we maintain the highest standards of safety, courtesy and customer care. We're good listeners and creative problem solvers too. Keeping things simple, having a common sense approach and demonstrating strong values on things like flexibility, energy and customer focus all underpin our methods of working.
