     DAVORA SOLUTION

             
An independent FMCG manufacturer wanted a business review with a focus on warehousing & distribution. Davora reviewed the company’s fleet requirements in conjunction with the order processing, warehousing & manufacturing departments.
        Davora carried out a detailed review of the departments, analysed the distribution &         warehousing with staff to understand the process from order processing to delivery.         Davora made a recommendation to move to the GKN blue pallet system, the current system         of buying new pallets & trying to recover them at the point of delivery was extremely         inefficient.  The company’s ‘owned fleet’ of vehicles were underutilised & were returning to         the company unladen.         The company were  successful with the introduction of the GKN blue-pallet system saving         £100,000 in the first year of operation.        The owned fleet of vehicles were fully utilised by collecting raw materials for        manufacturing, this enabled the company to negotiate a better price for raw materials.        The fleets running costs also benefited as return loads were utilised by collecting raw        materials for external canning contracts, in effect the company fleet had become a        haulage company, billing to external companies created a win win situation.
