Distribution Centres


Distribution centres are a vital part of the supply chain. Applied Acumen has an excellent track record in the development of great DC operations, and are also expert in recovering DC’s which aren’t performing.

Our programme experience includes:

  • the design and development of a brand new DC for a food service client serving London
  • the recovery of service and cost in (several) national DC’s
  • multi site depot improvement programmes – both in food and non-food businesses
  • the largest bread bakery DC in the UK
  • cost reduction in a semi-automated DC
  • interim management of various warehouse operations.

Our programmes have ranged from recovery – where DC performance in quality (waste, pick accuracy etc), cost (direct labour, ancillary support costs like MHE etc), and service (on time, in full, availability) has dropped – through to actual specification and design of brand new warehouses (along with the kit inside it).
