  • Re-packaging, labelling, kitting
    Upon receiving shipments, customers may wish us to re-package, assemble, label or rework their goods before sending them to their destination.
  • Quality inspections
    Quality management is essential in ensuring that customers receive goods that are up to the set standard. In the warehouse, both quality control and quality assurance processes are crucial.
  • Reverse logistics and returns management
    When a business or customer needs to return a good to the supplier, an efficient reverse logistics process minimises waiting times for both parties.
