The Great Chocolate Charade

With Easter just around the corner, retailers have by now, received many deliveries of chocolate eggs, stocking an abundance of egg shaped chocolate treats, now proudly lining their store shelves.

The infamous Cadbury Crème Egg which made its debut back in 1923, has of course already made its eagerly awaited appearance in our stores. Upon the arrival of The Crème Egg, the festivities of Easter are officially in the air.

On best behaviour, children have high hopes that the elusive Easter bunny will reward them in the form of the gift of a delicious chocolate egg.

However, for some, the delightful story of this bountiful bunny it seems, is too tall a tale.

White, dark, milk, hollow, filled, elaborately decorated, honeycombed; there is a plethora of eggs, some which seem a little surplus to requirements, never the less, the choice is yours for the taking.

But how on earth can just one Easter Bunny single-handedly make, and deliver, all of these different eggs on time?

Just like the logistical-legend Santa Clause, the Easter Bunny’s supposedly rapid routine has roused suspicions, and questions have been raised concerning the help which the bunny must rely on, to make the magic of Easter happen; with an estimated 80 million chocolate eggs sold each year in the UK, they may not want to admit it, but the Easter Bunny is definitely getting help from somewhere.

In 2017, there were reports of Easter Eggs having been spotted in shops just before Christmas 2016. Sightings of the treasured Cadbury Creme egg and Mini eggs were reported in some supermarkets, from as early as19th Dec 2016!

Statistics from Cadbury reveal that during peak season, the Cadbury factory churns out somewhere between 1.2 and 1.5 million crème eggs per day; and according to Cadbury, more than 200 million crème eggs are sold every year in the UK alone.

But how does the Easter Bunny ensure that all of these eggs reach us in time for Easter and in some cases sooner?

The manufacture of Cadbury Products relies on eight manufacturing sites and three distribution centres alone, throughout the UK, to ensure Easter is delivered on time.

In addition to this, many Cadbury products are created in the UK, meaning shorter supply chains, and thus a shorter waiting time for their products to hit our retailers’ shelves.

According to this, the Easter Bunny is certainly not just putting all of our eggs into one basket.

As for other eggs, not produced so close to home, the key to quick confectionary production relies on the increase in automation of processes in the warehouse.

Brands, such as Nestle, make Easter eggs, which account for a third of all products produced. At peak times their facility can move up to 3,000 tonnes of goods each day, with a vehicle departing every eight and a half minutes; definitely conducive to helping the Easter Bunny deliver on time.

With UK distribution centres, and warehouse automation promoting automated Easter Egg production, the Easter Bunny it seems gets more than a helping hand, to ensure that Easter is delivered on time, in our stores and ultimately within the comfort of our own homes.

The importance of effective Supply Chain Management

Gideon Hillman Consulting takes a look at the importance of an effective supply chain management strategy and summarises the key points manufacturers must focus on when evaluating how their supply chain operates…

How does Supply Chain Management impact manufacturing?
Supply chain management affects manufacturing in a variety of ways, from both a daily operational, and a strategic perspective. It is an important aspect of manufacturing, for industry managers and entrepreneurs alike; impacting upon processes including but not limited to the availability of inputs needed for production processes, costs and profitability of manufactured items, company infrastructure and ways in which companies interact with their suppliers and customers.

How can manufacturers implement effective Supply Chain Management?
Reliable delivery of inputs are imperative to enabling manufacturers to fulfil time-sensitive orders. Effective supply chain management ensures that raw materials consistently arrive at manufacturing production facilities on time, in turn preventing the need to source additional materials from alternative sources, subsequently avoiding higher prices and preventing lower profitability.

How does Supply Chain Management affect manufacturing distribution costs?
Lower supply-chain costs and overall boosted profitability can be achieved when manufacturers implement a cost-efficient supply chain, purchasing, and order-processing systems. This can be further emphasised by manufacturers adopting new and innovative technologies within the supply chain, including but not limited to investing in optimum routing and navigation systems for freight drivers, fuel-efficient vehicles, and by implementing stricter handling procedures.

What extraneous variables can affect Supply Chain Management and in turn manufacturers?
Management of both company infrastructure and supplier and customer integration within supply chain management can enable manufacturers to achieve optimum efficiency within all of their production processes, allowing them to remain competitive within the global marketplace. Additionally, manufacturers implementing continuous quality improvement programs, can initiate changes to wider reach supply-chain dynamics, encouraging collaboration with customers, suppliers, distribution systems, and transportation contractors.

‘Warehouse and Logistics News’ reflects on Gideon Hillman Consulting’s highlights of 2017, in their 2018 Annual Interview (Part 2)

Human Bridge working until dawn

WLN – Why should customers choose you as their main supplier in your area?
We are known for our ‘hands-on’ approach and ability to provide strategic solutions through an analytical and practical process, with a strong bias towards resource optimisation and manageable implementation all for a fixed cost. Through an operational focused approach, we provide practical and implementable solutions with the lowest investment options considered first. For example, if someone needs a warehouse improved, we don’t consider full or part automation until we first ensure that the manual operation is optimised. Once that cannot be improved any further, we then consider, whether alternatives such as automation will make any improvement and provide an acceptable return on investment for the client. The analysis and solutions specific to client requirements are presented with clear and concise rationale and where appropriate costed and tested.

RECENT TRADING

WLN – What’s business been like in the past year? How have conditions changed over this period and how have you reacted?
We have once again experienced significant growth in the last 12 months in what is becoming a more competitive market. Despite this we have achieved in excess of 25% year on year revenue growth in 2017 on the previous 12 months. The growth for us has been greatest in the Logistics Network Design and Warehousing side of the business particularly within the e-commerce, FMCG, Retail and Construction sectors; which is consistent with the developments in the UK Logistics and Warehousing sector. Adapting to the steep increase in business has been easier for us this year as we had already experienced a similar level of growth in 2015 and 2016, having therefore implemented the resource and strategic infrastructure to react quickly to new and existing client demands and the increases in the number and size of projects undertaken. Our business strategy developed over the last 24 months which includes investment into the right people, systems and infrastructure, which always pays off when implemented and managed correctly.

WLN – How have you fine-tuned your offering in the last 12 months and why?
We are always looking at innovative ways of adding to our service offering and ensure we keep on top of all current and future developments in technology and trends within the industry. This does not detract from (on the contrary it enhances) our core areas of expertise in reviewing current process and operations and developing strategy and solutions for all aspects of Supply Chain and Logistics. We don’t change our core offering and message to clients as the basic principles and factors that make up successful logistics operations remain constant; however, we are constantly refining what we do and identifying client needs and requirements to manage continual improvement.

Whatever we do we focus on and remain true to our established core values:

· To be the best we can be through the delivery of pragmatic and implementable solutions to our clients.

· To engage fully with our clients and to be as passionate about their business as we are about our own.

· To be the first port of call when our clients need specialist expertise to help achieve their objectives.

· To maintain our reputation for providing real and measurable value in our client’s Supply Chain

WLN – What recent enhancements have you made in customer service?
We are in the process of implementing our developed strategy to enhance the whole customer experience of working with us right through from initial enquiry to successful completion of a project and of course continuing to repeat business with our clients. This includes much improved software systems and customer focused support staff. We have successfully implemented the new HubSpot CRM and Sales Pro system to enhance our business and project management capabilities and provide a much more efficient client interface.

WLN – What new products and services have you brought out?
This year we have successfully started to use our 3D warehouse simulation for implementing and routing of robots in the warehouse environment for specific clients. We are continuing to develop and refine various Inventory models and also continue to enhance ‘The Resource Optimiser’ Activity Based Planning Tool which enables the forward forecasting of labour requirements for all functions within Warehouse and Distribution Centre (DC) operations. By producing a long term labour forecast the recruitment process can be managed efficiently and eliminates the need for immediate knee-jerk reaction to flex capability.

GOING FORWARD

WLN – Are you investing in new premises and extra staff? What about staff development and training?
As previously mentioned we are implementing our enhanced customer service strategy and as part of this we are in the process of hiring a Commercial Manager to join the senior team in early 2018 and have moved to bigger offices to accommodate the office based and improved client focused team supporting our consultants and clients. Our Marketing Executive, Natasha Raymond has just completed her first year with us during which she has successfully gained her Certification of ‘Digital Marketing Award’ from the Chartered Institute of Marketing and in addition is now Sales Software Certified by the HubSpot Academy.

WLN – Are you involved in any major trade shows or other industry events over the next year?
We currently have stands booked at IntraLogistex at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry and a at Multimodal at the NEC 2018. In addition, we are already booked in for IMHX in 2019.

WLN – What big news from Gideon Hillman can our readers look forward to seeing in Warehouse & Logistics News in 2018?
We always have service and system developments in the pipeline and no doubt some of these will be released during 2018, of which we will of course keep you and your readers informed!

WLN – And finally, if you had to sum up your company in a tweet what would it be?

‘Warehouse and Logistics News’ reflects on Gideon Hillman Consulting’s highlights of 2017, in their 2018 Annual Interview (Part 1)

Logistics Management Freight Service Production Concept

WLN – What are your best-known products and services?
We are widely recognised as one of (if not the) leading Logistics and Distribution Network Design and Warehouse / Distribution Centre design and process optimisation specialist consultancies in the UK. Our standing in the market is verified and validated by the numerous customer testimonials that we have and that can be seen on our website and the major brand names within our client portfolio.

WLN – Which market sectors and countries are your customers in? Which ones are growing fastest?
We continue to work across a range of industries with clients in Multi-Channel Retail (including e-commerce), FMCG, Drinks Retail, Food Processing and Production, Utilities and Construction, General Industrial and Manufacturing, Third Party Logistics and Outsourcing, Automotive and Aerospace, and the Public Sector. The fastest growing route to market is e-commerce and therefore e-fulfilment in most sectors and in the last 12 months we have been working for them in the UK, Poland, Cyprus, Germany and East Africa.

WLN – Who are your major customers and what do you do for them?
In 2017 we have added some great new clients to our already established portfolio including Beiersdorf, Knighton Foods, KP Snacks, Zorbas Bakeries, Bestway, Travis Perkins PLC, Wiggle, Hallis Hudson, Scope, LED Group, Annaghmore, PEPCO (part of the Steinhoff International Group), Equip Outdoor Technologies, PJH Group, Accolade Wines, Johnstone Logistics, Drystack, Weston Homes PLC, Otter Nurseries, Swift Industrial Supplies, Import Services, The Pen Shop and NGK Spark Plugs (UK). This is in addition to more project work for our existing clients including British Gypsum, Greene King, NISA Retail, Srixon Sports, Menzies Distribution, ABB and Diageo.

As usual the types of projects we have carried out have been varied and all well within our core areas of expertise including Optimised Distribution Network Design and appropriate Cost Modelling; Logistics Network Centre of Gravity Analysis to optimise resource and infrastructure; Multiple and individual Distribution Centre capacity assessments and Vehicle Fleet Profiling and resource requirements aligned with DC and customer requirements; new build design and re-configuration of existing warehouse, picking and distribution facilities; Optimised facility design/ layout, handling practices and workflows; Cost to serve, travel times and pick rate modelling to support the optimised layouts and workflows; Automation and Materials Handling Systems design, development, and implementation management; Warehouse and inventory management techniques to optimise workflow and costs; Optimised target inventories (holding cost vs. ordering cost vs. service); Tactical stock location(s) and picking strategies; Improved demand forecasting to allow for optimised inventories; and Warehouse and Traffic Management System Operational Requirements Specifications.

WLN – How do your services benefit your customers’ businesses?
We can quickly identify the reasons behind a sub-optimised complete logistics network or single warehouse. Once the reasons have been identified then we develop the optimal solution and support the client with implementation on the basis that the client takes ownership for the ongoing strategy. This is a critical part of clients improving business performance. We can provide them with the strategy and the tools and they must embrace the changes, as after all it is their business.

NISA engages Specialist Logistics and Supply Chain Consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting for Distribution Network Support

Nisa

Nisa is the brainchild of two grocery entrepreneurs – Dudley Ramsden and Peter Garvin who, in 1977, launched the company as the Northern Independents Supermarket Association to protect the interests of independents against the insurgence of the national supermarket chains.

Nisa is a unique member owned organisation serving independent food retailers. It represents over 1,300 registered shareholders operating over 3,000 stores and is flexible; enabling them to trade under their own fascia, to join the ever expanding Nisa symbol group or to choose the new alternative fascia, Loco. Through Nisa membership, retailers get access to a vast product range, an award winning own label range and an industry leading distribution network. In addition to this, retailers can take advantage of an array of services including marketing, a training academy, IT and public relations. This is then backed up by a strong support network covering member services and technological support.

Nisa has developed exponentially in the 40 years since it was established and with a bright future ahead, there will no doubt be many further developments to come as the business evolves to better meet the needs of its members.

Following their business growth, Nisa required a strategic and independent external view of how its logistics network could be optimised, and thus engaged the specialist Logistics and Supply Chain Consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting UK.

The Logistics Specialists visited key operating sites and reviewed existing distribution networks, to better analyse operational processes and the current ways of working, and to understand the issues and concerns of members.

Using a combination of network modelling tools, the specialist Logistics and Supply Chain consultants at Gideon Hillman Consulting UK, were able to gain a comprehensive understanding of NISA’s ideal distribution network design, based on delivering the required level of service to all registered shareholder stores.
