Coventry for the Caribbean

[ April 19, 2016   //   ]

ACE Exports, which supplies personal care, grocery and household products to retailers throughout the Caribbean, has outsourced its supply chain process to Midlands-based DK Fufilment. Under the terms of the two year agreement, DKF will be responsible for receiving palletised loads of goods from ACE Exports’ global suppliers and storing the stock at its 165,000 sq ft shared user facility in Coventry.

Orders will be picked and assembled in to containers for onward delivery to the Caribbean weekly and, at peak times, five container loads a week will be dispatched.

Prior to outsourcing to DKF, ACE Exports had operated three separate warehouses in the Black Country region. The new site offers three storage chambers and features a combination of wide and narrow aisle pallet racking as well as small parts storage bays and a dedicated pick, pack and re-work area as well as office accommodation.
