Historically, Christmas has been one of the most well-known seasonal peaks across nearly every industry. However, with supply chain peaks and troughs now being influenced more by customer demand than the season, it is becoming increasingly difficult to make predictions and plan accordingly to ensure your business meets that demand.
Whichever industry you are in, being flexible and scalable will ensure you are prepared for any supply chain peaks – whether predictable or unpredictable – as well as future growth. The best way of doing this is by getting the most up-to-date, appropriate, and efficient materials handling equipment through contract hire or rental from Dawsongroup | material handling.
Contract hire and rental offer several benefits over ownership, the primary one being flexibility. With our solutions, you can be flexible with everything – from the number and type of assets we provide to the time you have them for. Our direct finance means that there is no third-party bank involved and all our agreements are IFRS-16 compliant, which means rental payments can remain off balance sheet. Whether you want to pay a set amount every month or varying amounts with seasonal income, we have a rental solution for you. This versatility will allow your business to adapt to changing demands quickly and efficiently, whatever your customers may require.
Optimising your facility is another essential step towards increasing your productivity and efficiency. Streamlining your processes may not seem like a high priority in the current climate; however, it will save you time and money long-term. It will give you the capability to achieve better productivity, cost-effectiveness, safety, and efficiency, as well as minimising downtime. Automation, layout, and throughputs are all aspects to consider, and our free warehouse design simulation allows you to make an informed decision about the potential benefit of an operational change before you make an investment.
