Company resolves poor performance on warehousing with Contract Warehousing


Contract Warehousing Ltd was approached by a company that was based offshore and that had an agency representing them in New Zealand that was not performing and not responding to meet the principles requirements or concerns. They had made the decision to conclude that relationship but then were face with the immediate issues of warehousing, plant and staff that would be required to implement the commencement of running their own operation. When advised to contact Rod Giles, of Contract Warehousing Ltd as a way forward to meeting their requirement they took that action and visited on the Tuesday and discussed in full detail the situation and their requirements following which they were emailed a full proposal outlining the requirements, solutions and cost as was understood that evening. This was reviewed and questions asked and answered on the Wednesday with the decision being made to employ the services of Contract warehousing to provide fully warehousing and distribution as well as call centre, invoicing and accounting services to commence immediately. Contract Warehousing Ltd arranged for all stock to be collected from the existing agent on the Thursday and Friday during which time they also set up the databases in their computer inventory system along with the customers that were known and started entering the required pricing and discounts. The staff of Contract WarehousingLtd worked throughout the weekend carrying out a full stocktake of product received and putting this into the racking. Come Monday the first order started going out to customers as required.

While it was not easy, there was a considerable amount of work that continued over the following couple of weeks ensuring everything was fully implemented and with the co-operation from both parties and the effort from all concerned the transfer was successful and the client has gone on over the past few years to grow into a substantial successful business with them now only employing 2 commission representatives within NZ delivering the required service.

"…Contract Warehousing has handled our Denka CSA concrete additive in bulk for over twenty years. Occasionally we've had customers put us on the spot and Rod has gone out of his way to get it out the door - he'll drive the truck himself or put it in the back of the car and drive it out to the airport, if that's what it takes to make it happen."

"…It seems a long, long time ago I got CWL’s name from the yellow pages and we had our initial meeting. Your helpfulness, adaptability and advice was, and still is appreciated to this day.As a sole trader your organization allows me to travel and be absent from my office knowing that customer enquiries and orders will still be dealt with in your usual efficient manner. This service is invaluable as it lets me get on with the other problems and pressures of being in business today”

"…Working with Contract Logistics has been one of the best decisions made by Atlantis. All of the issues that arose in managing our own warehouse and distribution disappeared instantly when we made the move. One of largest advantages of working with Contract Logistics is the calibre of their staff - nothing is a problem or too hard. We find that all the staff has a genuine determination to provide a consistently high level of customer service, and their professional manor is second to none. Our goods are of a very high quality and, at times, of a fragile nature - thanks to the warehouse staff's care, our goods arrive to our customers on time in perfect condition.The only disadvantage is that we didn't make the move to Contact Logistics earlier.
