arvato is a leading player in the UK and European supply chain industry, with solutions that span full BPO, order-to-cash and direct-to-consumer services.
We understand how critical supply chains are to business success, delivering not just the product but the brand promise and much more besides. Demands on supply chains are growing greater, from considering environmental issues, to complying with industry standards and delivering a consistent service and quicker time to market. All this while controlling costs and providing visibility and transparency.
We have built up best practice across multiple sectors with unique requirements, including entertainment, technology and healthcare. For our clients in these sectors, we distribute in excess of 100 million units a year, across more than 60,000 different products.
From seasonal peak periods, to worldwide launches, we adapt flexibly and rapidly to changing demands in volumes. The technologies in our distribution centres incorporate paperless functionalities, such as pick-by-voice, radio data terminals and full scanning capabilities help us to guarantee a consistently fast and accurate service.
Every business wants improved performance at reduced costs. We deliver this by leveraging scale across different clients, optimising delivery rates through our combined purchasing power and streamlining processes. Our regular reporting makes the savings highly visible and allows for constant improvement in costs and performance.
No two client requirements are alike. From manufacturer to distributor, retailer to consumer, we apply intelligent solutions that swiftly integrate our people, processes and services with our clients’ existing supply systems to deliver responsive and sustainable solutions, improving speed, quality and efficiency. We maintain close client relationships and are committed to a programme of continuous improvement to maintain delivery of benefit and payback.
We use best practice to review existing supply chains and make expert recommendations on efficiency savings and process improvements, covering key factors such as location, capacity, inventory management, distribution, transport and logistics. We build in flexibility from the outset to cope with our clients’ evolving needs and future changes in demand.
