Brentwood is delighted to announce that it has been contracted by supermarket chain Aldi to supply two way radios to one of its regional distribution centres.
With a share of the UK grocery market that has doubled in the past three years and new stores opening at an average of more than one a week, Aldi is one of the country’s fastest growing grocery retailers.
Rapid rate of growth means the business is witnessing an enormous increase in its logistics and distributions operations. Regional distribution centres like the one in Chelmsford, Essex, the hub supplying all Aldi stores in the south east, are facing ever growing demands to supply more and more stores.
With deadlines tight and availability in store crucial, managing stock control, deliveries, vehicle fleets and warehousing for so many stores is a hugely complex operation. Especially for fresh produce, orders have to be received, processed, organised and delivered to stores in time so goods still arrive on shelf in pristine condition, which requires high levels of communication and coordination.
