DIRECT TO STORE
Bunzl will take orders direct from each individual store throughout the UK and Ireland and deliver direct, streamlining the whole ordering process and providing an optimum solution for each store. Delivery to the store will depend on size or classification but the exact requirements of each store will be met.
This means that we will deliver on pallets, in cages or in boxes with special instructions given by the individual location adhered to. Direct to Store provides a range of benefits inclusive of reduced working capital, streamlined orders for stores, enhanced storage space utilisation and improved store support.
When a customer already has a sound and robust storage & distribution mechanism in place Bunzl will work with the customer to utilise our procurement expertise, approved suppliers, ethical trading and quality processes and deliver in bulk the products required. The client benefits from the best in market prices submitted by Bunzl and also our proven ability to ensure that deadlines and delivery dates are continually met.
VENDOR MANAGED INVENTORY
Bunzl Retail Supplies can design, build and implement a Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) solution that will enable a transfer of full responsibility from the customer to us. Bunzl will maintain a full inventory of stock and be responsible for all re-supply decisions regarding order quantities, shipping and timing.
CROSS DOCKING SYSTEM
Bunzl can receive orders from the customer, pick and pack them and then distribute to the clients DC or 3rd party supply chain partner. The client receives the benefits of our procurement expertise, stock control management, warehousing and order picking and then the order can be sent via transport already going to the location delivering goods for resale. The cross dock orders can be picked in boxes, on cages or pallets dependent on how the subsequent orders are delivered into the retail store.
