24 Apr Travis Perkins – Additional loading space
Travis Perkins are not necessarily unique in what they do, but they are in the way they do it. They are constantly forward planning and have to be with the number of smaller companies they own, the main one being Wickes.
Both the Wickes and Travis Perkins brands sell products of all different shapes and sizes and they all come from distribution centres which operate 24/7. These operations constantly need more space and with Wickes being more for the general public, e-commerce becomes a major part of the business.
As Travis Perkins / Wickes wanted to free up internal space for picking systems, conveyor belts and other necessary equipment they needed more space to load and unload.
CopriSystems helped with this by installing a number of different sized structures to suit their sites, taking into consideration their vehicle fleet and very specific insurance company requirements (e.g. sprinkler systems).
Now no products are left outside and no part of the operation is taking place in the elements. The forklifts running back and forth into the warehouse remain dry, preventing Health and Safety issues with wet floor surfaces.
We have also installed smaller canopies at their retail stores.
