Sheldon Clayton Logistics, West Bromwich based third-party logistics provider (3PL), exceeded clients expectations with the figures of annual picking accuracy.

One of the greatest challenges for logistics providers today is being able to respond to demand for ascending KPI requirements. Customers set very rigorous standards for accuracy – this is one of the main reasons why warehousing and distribution operations are outsourced.

Sheldon Clayton Logistics meets the challenges of effectively managing a complex, dynamic distribution environment and they deliver high standard service with a special emphasis on accuracy. The main contract of the client includes picking of 1000 units per day, so to perform a virtually error-free operation is critical.

Recent reports indicate that the picking accuracy of 99.998% over the past 12 months has exceeded the clients KPI of 99.6%. The figures have not only exceeded the formal requirements of the client but were higher than any figures recorded before their operations were outsourced to Sheldon and Clayton Logistics.

To be able to achieve this performance, selecting the best distribution software available was a key component. Sheldon Clayton Logistics use StockTrack PLUS warehouse management system complemented by cost effective and reliable Catchwell handheld mobile computers; both provided by ATMS plc.

Stephen Cross – Managing Director of ATMS plc said, “We are very pleased that StockTrack PLUS could help them achieve consistently high accuracy levels. We were pleased to see how quickly and effectively Sheldon Clayton Logistics has put the WMS system to work and realised their ROI.”

StockTrack PLUS warehouse management system is extraordinarily well suited to the demands of 3PLs serving a wide range of customers and industries. Its ability to provide advanced visibility and traceability of products throughout the supply chain enables third party logistics companies to deliver higher service levels and greater customer satisfaction.

Richard Davies – Logistics and IT Director of Sheldon Clayton Logistics said, “It was fundamental that we selected an adaptable and reliable WMS. ATMS have delivered a system which allows us to proactively manage stock inventory and was a key factor in us winning the contract. We plan on rolling out the system into other areas of the business.”
