Rocket Consulting helped Laithwaite's to reduce distribution costs while increasing efficiency and turnover.
Laithwaite's previously operated out of two distribution centres and 70% of the distribution operation was outsourced, they needed to reduce distribution costs and increase efficiency and turnover, whilst improving quality and control.
Rocket designed a state of the art warehouse system for Laithwaite's new distribution centre, with high level automation controlled by the SAP ERP Warehouse Management.
- Enhanced management control
- Improved business logic in decisions and control
- Efficiency and through-put increased
- Improved accuracy
- Additional value added services

"As a result of the new SAP ERP warehouse management system that Rocket developed for us we now have a highly productive and accurate warehouse meeting customer needs, and we have been able to increase our through-put by 50%. The new system has way exceeded our expectations".
