Best practice for logistics and distribution networks
Our use of digital technology in the way we now buy and sell goods today is transforming how we store and move everything from socks to aircraft parts. It has also given rise to an increasing number of 24/7 mega warehouses.
To meet the needs of extensive logistics sites, operators are having to introduce sophisticated sustainable urban drainage systems (SUDs) to manage surface water run-off, intensive movement of haulage traffic and, of course, workforce parking.
Whether it is road or rail haulage, warehousing, or distribution by air and sea, efficient and effective logistics operations are vital to the UK economy. That means the way facilities managers maintain the physical assets is equally vital.
When it comes to the drainage infrastructure, there are specific risks associated with logistics sites but, thankfully, there are also solutions. A good starting point is our FREE Best Practice Guide to Logistics and Distribution, which will point you in the right direction, looking at:
- What can go wrong
- Legal policies and legislation
- Why distribution is impacted
