Some of our first assignments from our first office in Erdington, Birmingham were Logistical & Warehousing staffing needs. This area has always been at the forefront of our client services and in a sector that sees continuous development and growth, we expect it to be a stalwart for us over many years to come.
Our understanding and learnings from this sector have been developed over the last 25 years, providing tailored solutions and strategies of people supply to meet our client’s frequently changing environments. Over the years we listened and learned new ways to cope with changing supply and demand, new markets, new distribution channels and more.
Speed of Change in Logistics
This fast-moving and developing sector has really come on in recent years making it a fascinating sector to supply to. The increase in automation and robotics lead much by the likes of global powerhouses such as Amazon has been a real eye-opener for us, especially when you have been key a supplier to many of their sites. Many other businesses have also made key advancements though and this has helped make the sector an interesting place to supply to throughout the last few decades, regardless of the client being a global player or a regional distributor.
It’s not just the technical advancements in this industry changing shape, the planning and forecasting methods and tools have also seen this area become far more strategic and reactive to market trends and developments. The introduction of smart purpose-built software and related systems such as WMS/Red Prairie have transformed how data is captured and utilised to improve performance and turn things around ever faster.
Analysing Warehousing Needs
Using analysts to interpret BI has become more of the norm in this sector to work out what is needed and when ahead of it happening. Looking at trends and forecasting for expected market conditions, weighing up economic climates and potential hurdles to navigate, working closer with our clients to help prevent supply issues is more of a regular occurrence for us and allows us to be more aligned to businesses and their changing supply and demand.
Supplying operatives and skilled workers to this sector will continue to be a core focus for our business for the years ahead. We enjoy this sector, have confidence in experience of supply to it and have many great long term customers as evidence of our consistency of supply as proof of it.
If you feel your business could benefit from our support or perhaps improve on the supply you are receiving currently then please get in touch with one of our Business Development Managers to discuss your requirements and AM2PM’s potential solutions.
