Heidelberg UK enhances spare parts supply chain

In mid-December, Heidelberg UK will commence the relocation of its warehouse to the Miniclipper Logistics facility, as part of its Consumables & Parts Supply strategy. The move is expected to facilitate access to greater integrated systems and help enhance order fulfilment.

The partnership will enable Heidelberg to benefit from global supply chain technologies and systems as well as an improved supply chain experience for UK and Irish customers, while maintaining the same service, security and safety that its customers have become accustomed to.

“We need to be innovative with our supply chain to ensure that we support the changing needs of our customers with efficient digitised solutions that operate in an environmentally friendly way,” says Ryan Miles, Managing Director at Heidelberg UK. “Any innovations must also complement our fast-growing e-commerce and Vendor Managed Inventory (VMI) platforms. Ongoing support, consumables and spare parts availability are key factors in our customers’ purchase decisions. While we already focus on meeting UK and Irish customer expectations for rapid responses through digital transactions, our goal is to provide even greater visibility and flexibility that will further accelerate operations. The modern supply chain management solutions of Miniclipper Logistics deliver these goals.”

The partnership with Miniclipper extends the 20-year service they have provided to Heidelberg UK, as part of the delivery supply chain, through its own vehicle fleet and as a member of the Palletline and Hazchem network. This move was the next logical step in the association, to link the logistics facility in a project that has been supported by their dedicated team.

The Miniclipper facility in Bedfordshire is minutes away from the M1 motorway network and forms part of five warehouses amounting to over 350,000 sq ft of high bay warehouse space.
