We are cutting it…

01 December 2016

As RDL’s carpet logistics has grown we have regularly been approached by customers enquiring if we could provide a cutting service in addition to our current operations. Consequently, in December 2015 RDL invested in a cutting machine.

The new cutting service entails taking a large roll of flooring, this can be carpet or vinyl, and cutting it to the required room size for the end user on behalf of the supplier. The benefits of the new service are already being realised with RDL having successfully won two new contracts which both came to fruition during Summer 2016.

One of the new customers were attracted to RDL by the level of logistical solutions provided, and are utilising our facilities to help launch one of their new products to the UK vinyl flooring market.

All customers are now able to realise the added benefit of the new service. They are able to have their flooring products stored, cut, wrapped and dispatched from RDL’s Birmingham depot, consequently providing their own customers with a more efficient level of service too.

In addition to the investment in machinery, a new warehouse management system that focuses on flooring products specifically has also been implemented. The software provides a fully automated order tracking system within the warehouse allows us to control stock receipt to cutting and despatch.
