Christmas is always a busy time for us at Codestorm. We plan ahead and make sure we don’t let our clients down.
An extra 30,000 sqft in the Midlands
We’re delighted to announce we have expanded our e-commerce fulfilment operational and storage capacity by adding a second 30,000 sqft facility in the Midlands. This is in addition to the 30,000 sqft already being used at the existing Codestorm site in Portsmouth.
During lockdown, we were successfully despatching 4,500 to 5,000 direct to consumer orders per day. The extra capacity in the Midlands means we can fulfill 10,000 orders per day in the run-up to Christmas.
Process Improvement Continues
Flexibility is the key to being a leading third-party logistics provider. We have added an extra Sunday shift to deal with the huge weekend influx of orders and will be moving to a split shift system from 6pm to 2pm and 2pm to 10pm from 1st November until January.
Even after Christmas, the improvements will continue. We are currently undergoing a full operation review with the help of an external consultancy that specialises in workflow and gaining efficiencies in production environments. This will help us exceed 10,000 orders per day simply by updating some of our current processes which will include mechanisation and system changes.
At Codestorm, we never stop!
