When you need all the benefits of a bespoke solution, the flexibility and cost advantages of sharing space, labor, equipment and transportation, and consistently excellent operations, SDS’s shared warehousing and distribution solutions will meet your requirements.
If you have low volumes, or uncertain demand, or both, sharing warehousing and transport between organizations allows you to enjoy big business benefits. It’s particularly effective when sharing across the same industry sector, when businesses employ the same channels to market, or where their products have complementary seasonal demand profiles.
Our shared use campuses and distribution networks are located in strategic locations in both developed and developing countries, and offer comprehensive logistics services on a flexible basis across a number of industry sectors.
VALUE ADDED SERVICES
SDS’s dedicated and shared user warehousing solutions are not just about holding stock. There are a wide range of additional services that we offer, as part of an overall solution that can improve the performance of your supply chain.
From sub-assembly, packaging services, customization, postponement, kitting, sequencing to pre- retail activities across all industry sectors, we help you reduce costs, reduce inventories, and better match supply with demand.
Co-locating these services alongside the storage of your products not only saves money but removes steps in the supply chain. The elimination of transportation time to a packaging facility means you can reduce your lead times and decrease your inventory. And by having SDS perform all these activities you receive the same visibility and operational excellence that you’ve grown to expect from the market leader in contract logistics.
