KC Group Shipping Limited recently secured an exciting contract to provide a long-standing, valued client with an extensive range of service solutions. The ongoing contract involved setting up an overflow storage warehouse, managing a pick-and-pack operation, and ensuring the final delivery of goods to the client's European distribution hubs in France, Belgium, Germany, and Italy. We efficiently provided a road map and implemented the project, demonstrating our expertise in handling complex logistics operations. Our Project Case Study showcases our exceptional capabilities in managing large-scale warehousing, pick and pack operations, and European distribution.


KC Group Shipping had to overcome several challenges in our project, including arranging the collection of thousands of pallets from our client`s warehouse in Scotland, efficiently organising the overflow storage in our Glasgow facility, managing many SKU variations in the pick and pack operation, and ensuring secure palletisation and timely dispatch to European distribution hubs. However, we successfully overcame these challenges by implementing safe transportation, optimising storage space, streamlining the pick and pack process, and coordinating with reliable transport partners for prompt delivery. Our service solutions ensured the smooth execution of the project and the efficient handling of goods throughout the entire process.

Collection and Transport
KC Group Shipping arranged the collection of approximately 8,000 pallets, each containing around 50 cartons of textiles, from the client's warehouse in Scotland. We ensured secure transportation of these pallets via trucks to our warehouse facility in Glasgow.

Overflow Storage Warehouse
Upon arrival at our warehouse in Glasgow, KC Group Shipping efficiently organised the storage of the pallets. The overflow storage warehouse was designed to accommodate the substantial volume of goods, ensuring optimal space utilisation and easy accessibility for efficient inventory management.

Pick and Pack Operation
KC Group Shipping implemented a robust pick and pack operation, managing over 2,000 SKU (Stock Keeping Unit) variations. The skilled team meticulously sorted each pallet and efficiently picked and packed the required cartons, enabling daily pick levels of around 200 to 300 cartons. This streamlined process allowed for accurate order fulfilment and minimised processing time.

Palletisation and Despatch
After picking the cartons, they were carefully palletised to ensure secure transportation. KC Group Shipping organised daily dispatches to the client's European distribution hubs in France, Belgium, Germany, and Italy. By coordinating with reliable transport partners, we ensured the timely delivery of the palletised goods to their respective destinations.
