Family-run housewares brand Dexam embarked on a mammoth warehouse project over Christmas. The company’s entire warehouse was re-racked and re-configured to futureproof Dexam’s storage requirements and also improve its logistical capacity.
The project was due to take place over 13 days but with the hard work of the warehouse team, it was completed two days ahead of schedule. Along with greater storage capacity, the new layout will provide extensive pick face capacity, speedier bay fill and order fulfilment and faster and more effective customer despatch.
Tom Roberts, Dexam’s operations manager in charge of the warehouse, said: “We decided to rerack the warehouse over the Christmas and New Year period to keep the disruption to our great service to an absolute minimum. It was certainly a challenge and wouldn’t have been possible without the fantastic hard work of the warehouse team. There is some fine-tuning of pick bays and pallet locations but that can happen over the coming weeks and months. I am incredibly proud of what we have achieved and it’s a brilliant start to 2022!”
