An Ambient Opportunity from Fowler Welch
Fowler Welch is reaching out to businesses, particularly SMEs, in light of the decline in value across the ambient food sector of £84.5m (3.6%) to £2.2bn this year, with a range of solutions to costly logistics and inefficient supply chain management.
With brands competing more fiercely than ever for customers’ money and the added pressure of 40% of total volume being sold on a promotional offer, being efficient in time and spend across the supply chain has never been more crucial.
At its ambient storage facility in Heywood, Greater Manchester, Fowler Welch is able to offer consolidation support, saving time and money and improving service. This service will be particularly beneficial to SMEs in offering them access to bigger retailers.
Nick Hay, Chief Executive Officer at Fowler Welch says:
“At Fowler Welch our focus continues to be on providing whatever service our customers require, through listening and responding to their changing needs. So with the recent decline in the value of ambient, it’s even more important for us to support our customers’ needs, whether they cover consolidation, less than load, Contract Packing or vendor managed infantry, among others.”Nick Hay
Renowned for its logistics offering, Fowler Welch also offers a wider range of services to meet a large variety of business needs; ambient storage and warehouse services being one of them. Following the opening of their flagship ambient facility in the strategic location of Heywood, Fowler Welch has seen the team quickly parallel the Day One for Day Two services available in the temperature controlled supply chain with their flexibility and commitment to customers.
Nick continued: “At a time where accountability is a key factor in the success of supply chains, big and small, the end to end traceability offered in our ambient facility is essential. Through continual listening, responding and delivering, we can offer our customers the best quality services for their business.”
The Heywood depot is BRC accredited and stands out against its competitors for running a 24/7 operation which in turn allows this element of the supply chain to be as reactive as a temperature controlled chain.
