U C D Storage and Distribution select Proteus WMS

UCD (Southwell) Ltd has selected Proteus WMS to control their 100,000 sq. ft. storage and distribution facility.

UCD (Southwell) Ltd is a national shop fitting, manufacturing and logistics contractor with many years’ experience of providing a complete shop fitting service throughout the UK and Ireland.

Following their successes, the company has achieved organic growth, and their services have expanded to include the development of 100,000 + sq. ft. storage space at their RAF Newton facility.

UCD offers a comprehensive storage and distribution operation. The secure storage space is fully equipped and maintained by an ambitious and vibrant facilities management team. The space can be expanded to suit their customers’ requirements.

Renowned for their professionalism and dedication to their customers, UCD’s range of services include a dedicated telephone order line system for clients to place distribution orders that are processed immediately to impact against stock reports. The orders are then picked, packed, shipped and distributed by their nationwide fleet of delivery drivers or passed onto their affiliated courier service, ensuring that all deliveries are received exactly when and where they are required.

Functionally rich, the Proteus Warehouse Management System will control all of the process within the warehouse by utilising the latest RF technology. The system is on premise and is for 8 users initially. The 100,000 sq. ft. warehouse has 3.500 pallet spaces, storing stock for AJ Watson’s Super Drug retail stores, and the clothing retail chain New Look.

UCD also has the ability to recycle surplus shop fittings and equipment no longer required in high street stores. The equipment once returned to the facility, is repaired or adapted and then returned to the clients’ inventory and asset register.

UCD’s services are ever evolving, ensuring that they can tailor their Storage and Distribution solutions to all aspects of the Retail industry.

Howard Turvey, Managing Director, Proteus " We are really pleased that winning the UCD contract has endorsed the great start we have had to 2013. We are delighted to welcome UCD to the Proteus family."
