Contract logistics for FMCG retailers and manufacturers/suppliers...
Focused on the non-food (including DIY and consumer electronics) and ambient/temperature-controlled food and grocery sectors including e-commerce fulfilment for e-retailers.
Retail/FMCG contract logistics is the heart of Tibbett Logistics’ service offer. It is our core competence, and we have provided nationwide domestic FMCG logistics services for retailers and manufacturers since 2004. We manage dedicated, shared and multi-user operations under contract in temperature-controlled, ambient and bonded warehousing for a range of clients – including Metro Cash & Carry, Leroy Merlin and Auchan.
Complex and time-sensitive operations
Retail sector logistics typically comprises complex and time-sensitive operations involving the handling of between 5000 and 12,000 stock keeping units (SKUs) a day through stock-picking and cross-docking operations. Each retail distribution centre holds up to 35,000 pallets, and is controlled by a sophisticated warehouse management system (WMS) and radio-frequency (RF) communications.
We handle fresh produce (fish, fruit & vegetables, dairy products, etc.), as well as frozen food items that require extremely high quality standards and strict adherence to regulations governing hygiene, warehouse organisation and employee training.
Ambient, chilled and frozen food and grocery
Contract logistics services for the food and grocery manufacturing/supply sector include multi-temperature warehousing and distribution, plus cross-docking. We handle ambient, chilled and frozen food and grocery merchandise, along with beverages, confectionery and fresh produce. We have experience in the design and construction of state-of-the-art ambient and chilled warehouses, plus cold stores, as well as the operation of multi-compartment, multi-temperature vehicles.
We also provide contract logistics services for retailers and suppliers/manufacturers of other non-food mass consumer/FMCG merchandise including consumer electronics, do-it-yourself/DIY/home improvement, pharmaceuticals, electrical equipment, office equipment, cosmetics, furniture, housewares, motoring accessories, personal products, tools, toys, components… and more.
