Prism DM’s recently opened site in Northamptonshire will significantly increase the company’s capacity for multi-client operations. With 12,000 racked pallet positions, bulk storage areas in a modern high standard depot, fully fitted ESFR sprinkler systems and a 24/7 manned security environment near the main UK delivery networks, the site offers a comprehensive suite of services.
There are also plans for some specialist operations for retailers, such as bulk break of supplier deliveries and initial store allocations before forwarding the balance to the client’s own warehouse. These services will complement and extend Prism’s established offerings of B2C and B2B fulfilment.
Prism DM’s own WMS system will be deployed to ensure clients have a single view of their inventory at all times. The system will be continuously enhanced by Prism’s in-house development team to achieve higher levels of throughput for specialist work flows, and also to simplify integrations with clients’ systems by API so eliminating the need for duplicated or manual processes between organisations.
