Darren Alden has re-joined Logistex as General Manager – Engineering Support Services to support the growth of our business. Previously at Logistex Darren was responsible for our residential sites before leaving to join Marks and Spencer to head up their engineering maintenance operation at one of their major sites. Darren was keen to return to Logistex and will bring back with him many new skills and insights gained whilst he was away.
HSS editor Simon Duddy took a trip up to the QUIZ distribution centre in Bellshill, Scotland, where he met with Distribution Centre Manager Allan More to talk about how Logistex helped QUIZ Clothing to implement a leading edge approach to logistics.
“Logistex had worked with other fast fashion groups and had knowledge of how we wanted to operate. Its WMS system was tailor-made for what we wanted to achieve. It is very important to state that we weren’t led by the system, it was vital that the technology and equipment would adapt to our model. We demand flexibility from all our solutions partners and Logistex was very forthcoming on that.
With Logistex, we created a solution so this warehouse could handle all processes all the time. We could move labour around and carry out processes simultaneously. That was one of the key drivers – we need to be able to fulfil every channel as demand requires.”
