The UK has some of the most sophisticated ecommerce operations with the likes of John Lewis, ASOS and Shop Direct. These companies have invested millions to create state of the art facilities with sophisticated materials handling solutions to process the millions of orders received weekly.
For many organisations this level of investment is not only a dream but in reality not suitable for more modest ecommerce operations. This visit is aimed at organisations that have a fledgling ecommerce business and are looking for entry level solutions that will not break the bank and provide a quick return on investment.
The Superdrug facility is such an example and has been designed to handle in the region of 15,000 skus and a volume of up to 150k orders per week. The aim of the event is to provide an opportunity to see a solution and for attendees to discuss and share how to tackle the challenge of meeting volume growth in a cost-effective manner.
Please note, the delegate list for this event will be vetted.
Refreshments and a light buffet will be provided.

Founded in 2005, the Logistics Institute is a world-class centre of excellence in global logistics and supply chain management research. The Institute was established with £20 million in funding from Yorkshire Forward (a regional development agency) and the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF). This funding, which ended in December 2007, enabled us to create the institute and provide logistics training, support and consultancy.
Supported by our grant funding, the institute assisted 530 businesses with their logistics and supply chain issues. These businesses created over 160 new jobs and increased sales by £55 million per year.
Now self sufficient, the institute is unique in offering logistics degree courses, research, business consultancy and training, and community engagement.
