APC Overnight is expanding its ‘pick and pack’ services with a new warehousing and distribution centre in High Wycombe. The site is owned and managed by Scarlet Couriers, an established courier with additional offices in Slough, Bracknell, Reading and Uxbridge. With Scarlet’s new facility, Chiltern-based businesses can also take advantage of a local storage, order fulfillment and despatch service for UK-wide next day delivery through APC Overnight – the UK’s largest overnight network.
The new site provides 20,000 sq ft of modern warehousing to provide safe and secure storage. Scarlet Couriers uses the latest in warehouse management technology and equipment to maximise use of warehouse space, including VNA (very narrow aisle) flexi-articulated forklifts. The narrow aisle design provides storage for over 1,000 pallets on modern racking systems.
Existing clients using the company’s outsourcing services cover a wide range of products from food to electronics. Businesses connect to the company’s “pick and pack” services using their websites or by simply calling the office with their orders, which provides a flexible outsourced fast fulfillment solution for all kinds and sizes of companies.
“Our service is both flexible and cost-effective. We take in the goods, assign storage, accept customer orders by web, email or telephone, and then pick and despatch for next day delivery to anywhere in the UK using the APC Overnight network. For local entrepreneurs this is a great way to get their business off the ground without the need to invest in their own warehousing,” says Martin Cavendish, Operations Director.
High Wycombe is the latest in the Scarlet Couriers chain of depots. The company now covers a larger territory, reaching north to Hemel Hempstead, south to Ascot, east to Shepherd’s Bush and west to Pangbourne. As part of the APC Overnight nationwide network of 120+ local depots, it offers national coverage from the customer’s doorstep.
Martin Cavendish adds: “Scarlet Couriers now has comprehensive services throughout the Thames Valley and Chilterns. Our Wycombe depot joins up our existing customer zones to provide next day services for customers throughout the region.”
