CASE STUDY

KITCHEN EQUIPMENT RETAILER

The Challenge:  A direct seller for kitchen tools in the UK had a distribution process that called for picking all orders in a Chicago facility and shipping them to the UK. The service to European markets was not cost effective and very slow.

The Strategy: MIQ Logistics conducted an investigation on sites throughout Europe for optimal distribution.

The Solution: MIG Logistics began operating as the client’s European warehouse in Glasgow. Orders were submitted through their system in Chicago and processed through 100% QA. Once QA was verified, orders were tracked via the internet using their order number.

The Results: MIQ Logistics increased cash flow, reduced lead times by multiple days, reduced shipment delays, and increased customer satisfaction.
