The consumer sector and patterns of personal consumption continue to change dramatically, and supply chain solutions for this dynamic sector need to be agile.

The next 10 years are set to be even more fast-paced, especially in technical advancement and the digital revolution. Supply chains of the future will therefore be radically different to today’s.

The drive to provide a wider range of goods, with enhanced on-shelf availability, faster routes to market, and lower cost to consumers – all whilst maintaining profit margins – means the industry has to be forward thinking and innovative.

Our services for the consumer sector include:

Advanced Warehouse Solutions

We design and implement flexible warehouse solutions that respond quickly to changing customer demand, managing over 260,000 product lines across our consumer portfolio. This was evident through the Covid-19 pandemic, when Unipart increased distribution of products such as toilet roll and hand wipes by 55% for Kimberly-Clark overnight. Our combination of technology, great people and processes deliver sustainable, quality focused consumer warehouse operations.
