Walker opens dedicated re-work centres

At its site in Berkshire, online fulfilment and logistics specialist, Walker Logistics, has opened two new units dedicated to customer re-work operations.

The 10,000 sq ft self contained facilities will allow Walker to offer the fastest turnaround to the growing number of client companies that require services such as kitting, relabelling and quality control in addition to traditional storage, pick, pack and despatch solutions.

"Rework is a growing part of our business. We already undertake a broad range of value-added services and our investment in these new specialist centres will enable us to further improve on-site operational efficiency," says William Walker, sales director of Walker Logistics.

"Our new re-work centres provide our clients with the ability to outsource tasks such as light assembly work, pack configuration and other activities flexibly, quickly and cost-effectively – which can only be good for their business."

He continues: "It is not uncommon for companies to use a warehousing company to store their goods and another firm to undertake 'kitting' tasks, but finding a partner that can do everything is far more efficient.

"For example, using a full service supplier reduces double handling and, therefore, saves costs," he explains.
