An evolution in retail

Heavy duty shelving

Online shopping is a growing trend in the materials handling industry, with the number of consumers opting to shop online increasing year by year. Previously, a retailer would purchase goods or products in bulk from manufacturers or importers, either directly or through a wholesaler, and then resell them on in smaller quantities to the end user via a shop or store.
While this system is still in place, the retailing industry has profoundly changed as it becomes ever easier to shop online. Our increasing reliance on the internet has bought about massive changes in the supply chain, most noticeably in home delivery and the reduction of visitors to the high street shops.

Businesses in the retail sector have been forced to develop and diversify their supply chain in order to remain competitive. One of our regular customers, a retail giant, opened new distribution centres in Kent, Warwickshire and Cumbria to meet the growing demand of shopping online and home delivery service. These new centres required essential storage systems and packaging tables, and Action Handling were on hand to help, supplying our range of heavy duty shelving and warehouse furniture to maximise handling and storage procedures.

As your business changes as grows, so too will your equipment needs. Let us help you to stay competitive in a rapidly changing industry. For more information about our product range or bespoke steel fabrication service, give us a call –
