WAREHOUSING AS WELL-OILED MACHINE
KTC is a producer and wholesaler in the United Kingdom for the distribution and sales food and beverages. It’s an independent family-owned business and international food brand that supplies over 250 million liters of high quality cooking oils to the food industry, growing and broadening its food product portfolio consistently.
KTC was running a huge warehouse operation completely based on paperwork and documents. They had to deal with a lot of manual human labor. Also, because the process wasn’t optimized, a lot of double handling was required to complete standard tasks.
It just became increasingly challenging to keep stock information accurate and it finally reached a point where it became clear that a level of automation was needed to gain the critical insights again so the right decisions could be made at the right time.
