Businesses across the UK maximise the offering of storage facilities to help them with the stock flow and item storage. A storage facility allows businesses to understand their inventory management, release space in a busy office and have a central point to store their items that can be easily located when required. But what do you do with those items that don’t need to be accessed regularly? This is where deep storage from a logistics and storage company could make a difference not only to your bottom line but to your logistics solutions.
Deep storage allows any business with a fixed inventory to store its items in a space that is safe, efficient and cost-effective. Deep storage offers space for a medium to long-term basis, allowing businesses to focus on their office capacity whilst providing a cost-effective solution to storing those items that you don’t need to access every day.
Our deep storage service works well for an inventory that does not need to be picked, assembled or handled in any way – asides from getting it into place and passing it back to you when you need it. To understand whether deep storage is a viable option for you and your items, our team will work with you to understand what you are storing, how you would like it to be stored and how long you will need it stored for.
Once our team understand your needs, we will then advise whether deep storage is the right option for you, and they will agree on the finer points of your contract, including a timeframe of which you will need your items back and how you would like it to be stored with us. As a leading logistics and storage company in the UK, Mango Logistics works with a variety of businesses, supporting them with their storage requirements.
In recent months, the logistics industry has seen a staggering increase in the use of robots and automation within warehouse processes. Due to labour shortages and cost increases, companies are searching for ways to increase their productivity and production lines without the huge costs associated. According to Innovation Driven Resilience, around 38% of logistics companies have a working robotic warehouse, and about 23% are planning to incorporate robots and automation within the next 12-24 months.
Robots are already being used in a wide range of logistics, sometimes extensively. For example, robots are now being used to transport goods across continents. In fact, there are even robots that deliver packages directly to people’s doors. However, we can see that this trend will continue over the coming decades.
Over time, robotics will just slowly creep into more and more areas. This is because the complexity of the supply chains makes it difficult for humans to do everything themselves. As such, we will start seeing more and more use cases where robots perform specific tasks. These tasks include picking up items off shelves, transporting items around warehouses, and performing repetitive work.
In today’s competitive business environment, having an efficient and reliable 3PL provider is essential to help you increase productivity and stay ahead of your competitors. 3PL (Third Party Logistics) providers offer a range of services that can help businesses streamline their supply chain operations, from warehouse and inventory management to freight and transportation. In this blog post, we’ll discuss the various benefits of working with a 3PL provider and how it can help your business.
A third-party logistics (3PL) provider offers a range of outsourced logistics services such as warehousing, order fulfilment, and transportation. This can be an invaluable asset for businesses looking to reduce costs, improve supply chain efficiency, and increase customer satisfaction. By partnering with a logistics and storage company, businesses can handle a variety of tasks such as inventory management, order fulfilment, shipping, returns, customer service, and more.
By outsourcing the logistics operations to a trusted partner, businesses can focus more on their core competencies and dedicate their resources to more strategic tasks. 3PL providers also provide access to a vast global network of suppliers, shippers, and customers, helping businesses to expand their reach. They also have the necessary resources and expertise to manage a complex logistics operation, which can help businesses reduce their costs of operations and environmental footprint. By leveraging their economies of scale, 3PL providers can help businesses to reduce their costs and optimise their use of resources.
Our leader, Daniel, talks all things leadership and innovation
The founder of Mango Logistics, your logistics and storage company, Daniel Levan-Harris, recently teamed up with Helm to answer some burning questions. During the interview for The Founders Brew, Daniel covered a wide range of topics related to the logistics industry and his inspirations, dealing with his dyslexia as a founder and the future of insect-eating in the Western world – yes! You read that correctly!
Over his favourite drink of a double espresso with a splash of hot water, Daniel explains that growing up with dyslexia meant he soon realised he wasn’t going to be a writer or a lawyer. However, rather than succumbing to discouragement, Daniel channelled his unique perspective, allowing him to conceive extraordinary ideas and uncover hidden opportunities that evaded others. His unparalleled gift lies in his ability to envision the bigger picture while entrusting the finer details to his dedicated team.
As a founder, Daniel believes resilience is key, along with building a great network and making sure the right team surrounds you. Watch the full video, and be sure to share it with your network of resilient founders.
