Matalan to increase pre-retail operations

The company has signed a three year agreement with Advanced Supply Chain which will provide a range of pre-retail operations to maximise operational efficiency and stock availability.

The move follows the results of a full audit by the retailer of its end-to-end supply chain as part of an ongoing business cost analysis.

UK Terry Broadhead, imports and distribution manager at Matalan, said: "ASC worked closely with us in reviewing certain parts of the supply chain. They helped to identify a number of areas where efficiency could be improved to generate tangible savings and operational advantages.

"Their expertise, flexibility and bespoke control systems will ensure the success of the operation, and the new service will help our strategy of countering rising raw material costs to continually offer consumers best value goods."

Mike Danby, CEO of Advanced Supply Chain, added: "Competitive retail selling prices are key to growth in the value part of the retail sector. This operation, which will reduce distribution time and operating costs, will help Matalan maintain their competitive edge."
