A project managed end-to-end solution that supports businesses in the acquisition and implementation of new warehouse operations. Designed to reduce risk, condense project time and minimise double running costs.
IMPLEMENTING AN OPERATION
FROM THE GROUND UP
Whether you’re opening a brand new operation or moving from an old site to a new one – getting your empty shell to peak operational state can be a complex and challenging process.
If you don’t have the expertise, experience or capacity within your internal teams to approach this type of undertaking then Secure Start is ideal for you and your business.
We know your priorities are getting your new operation mobilised and to ‘steady-state’ as quickly and cost-efficiently as possible. The process of scoping a new warehouse facility from validation of concept through to go-live can be extremely complex, time consuming and expensive.
With tasks ranging from network modelling to large scale recruitment, there’s a lot to consider. Our experienced consultants will take you through a check list of considerations before talking you through our menu of services to ascertain your requirements; making sure you get help in the areas you need it most.
We offer complete flexibility; you can use Secure Start as an end-to-end solution or as individual services to provide structured support when and where needed.
Not only does Secure Start act as an advisory service, we can plan, project manage and implement all of our recommendations; taking the pressure off your management team and the risk away from your business.
