Bullet Express are delighted to be in the UKWA awards list for the second year in a row following last year’s win of Best Newcomer 2017.
From a standing start of 2000 pallets in October 2015 Bullet Express now have over 17,000 pallets in their 200,000 sq ft site.
David McCutcheon, Managing Director, said: “As the MD I am immensely proud of all the work our team at Baillieston have put in to build such a good portfolio of clients in such a short space of time.
From Donald Gillies our warehouse manager through all the warehouse boys and indeed to all the staff at both our sites in Scotland who have contributed to the great success of this relatively new side to our business we congratulate them on their sheer professionalism.
Our staff have helped develop our offerings here through pallet storage top container work, pick pack and pallet build. Due to night contracts awarded recently we are now operating 24hrs on the site although full G4S security still remains as well as full CCTV.
As a fully automated barcode warehouse we have built up great reporting of all goods in and out with full transparent reporting to all clients as required.
This system was mapped, installed and completely operational in 5 weeks by our warehouse apprentice Scott McCutcheon (my son) whom we are delighted is up for Young Warehouse Employee of the Year 2017, at the UKWA Awards.
For a boy of 18 to come straight into his first job and complete such a task and then add installing and demonstrating the barcode scanners to staff speaks volumes for his dedication to the job in hand.
Scott has also been very much involved in developing reports from our Stirling Solutions WMS system for many customers, during which time he has passed his fork lift counterbalance, warehouse apprenticeship and own road driving licence.
We have recently secured our largest client who has agreed the storage of over 3000 pallets which should take us towards our goal of over 20,000 pallets, a year ahead of schedule.
At present we are negotiating for the purchase of over 3 acres of landlocked land at the back of our building with the future in mind, with us getting close to 20,000 we may need this sooner rather than later.
We wish good luck to Scott and of course the other two finalists at the UKWA Awards lunch 2017.”
