SCALA CASE STUDY
E-Com Logistics Fulfilment Strategy
Specialist Fresh Produce Retailer
Background & Brief
The client is a leading producer and distributor of organic food boxes for delivery direct to the consumer; a very successful business with continued growth which faced the challenge of 40% growth during the Covid pandemic. This growth led the business to urgently reassess its future supply chain and logistics network. SCALA were engaged to undertake a logistics network review and support the client in formulating a supply chain and logistics strategy to meet updated growth projections through to 2026 and beyond.
Benefits & Results
Detailed Findings and Conclusions were discussed with the Company’s UK Board containing clear recommendations for the development of a second packing operation enabling future growth and providing the business with reduced risk and additional supply chain resilience. The proposed option required the least capital investment, little people impact and the lowest cost of change. The recommendations also included a change to automate packing processes and improve internal layout designs.
All the recommendations are in the process of being fully implemented.
