Priority Freight: taking care of your safety stock

11th April 2019

There’s more to logistics than transport, for example many Priority Freight customers rely on our secure and flexible warehousing services to support in the management of their global supply chain.

Our strategically located 24/7, 365 operational Midlands facility in Coventry, is accessible via several major motorway links and is temperature-controlled with 360° state-of-the-art CCTV and security.

With Nationwide and pan-European distribution from our warehouse boasting in-excess of 1800 racking locations, internal/external block-stack availability to support with contingency and long-term storage plus associated value-added services, we can add speed and flexibility to your supply chain whilst maintaining the level of service excellence that Priority Freight is known for.

Guaranteed security and speed

When faced with unpredictable circumstances, keeping accurate inventory records is highly important. We know that relying on a third-party warehouse operation shows great trust and confidence in their ability to offer and reliable, flexible and secure solution that either minimises, or averts, the risk of production downtime.

When products are required in an emergency, it is crucial to know immediate stock availability and accessibility. Our warehouse operation has witnessed a noticeable demand in short-term safety stock storage and has been responding within 15 minutes of client notification for pallet/part pick, pack and dispatch.

Real-time stock visibility

To guarantee the security of our clients’ stock information, our in-house WMS (warehouse management system) is stored on a secure server and backed up every 15 minutes.

We understand the importance of maintaining accurate inventory records as a critical element in managing the global supply chain, and relying on third-party warehouse operations requires traceability and transparency at all times. We are able to provide precision tracking of fast-flow items and produce daily and weekly inventory management reports to our customers as standard, providing real-time stock levels and control.

With a WMS stock accuracy KPI of 99.7%, our customers have advised that our robust WMS and processes are so accurate, they are preferred to their own in-house systems, and it is this attention to detail which has helped our warehousing services become an integral part of Priority Freight’s high-quality logistics portfolio and support offering to our customers.
