Packaging supplier Davpack sets new record for turnaround speed during last quarter; orders, including those placed outside of working hours as well as bespoke items, were dispatched within an average of 1.3 days, 0.9 days when excluding bespoke packaging
December 13, 2013
– With a reputation for being one of the quickest packaging suppliers around already well established, Davpack has just set a new record for speed of turnaround.
In today’s ultra competitive commercial environment, the success or failure of a business can often depend on the speed and reliability of its suppliers. Companies buying their packaging materials from Davpack, then, are at a particular advantage, as the Derby-based packaging suppliers have just cut the time between receiving and dispatching their orders to a new low.
Davpack aims to dispatch orders for stock items received before 3 p.m. Monday to Friday on the same working day. But with customers able to place orders 24 hours a day, seven days a week online, an order placed at 5.30 p.m. on a Friday cannot be dispatched until Monday morning at the earliest. Meanwhile, bespoke packaging items, such as custom made boxes and printed carrier bags and packing tape, usually have a lead time of anywhere between seven working days and several weeks.
Despite this, over the last quarter, Davpack’s orders have been dispatched within an average 1.3 days, a figure that includes all those bespoke items and all those placed outside of working hours. When bespoke packaging items are excluded, that figure drops to an average lead time of just 0.9 days.
Davpack’s Managing Director Barney Byfield was quick to praise the efforts of his staff in achieving this feat during the busiest trading period of the year.
“Our levels of stock availability and order fulfilment have always always high, but we’ve been delighted to discover we’ve been getting our orders out quicker than ever before. It means that customers with limited storage space can order their packaging as and when they need it, confident that Davpack won’t leave them high and dry, unable to fulfil their orders for their own customers.
“We’ve been working really hard to ensure we have the right amount of stock to react quickly to fluctuating demand, and the warehouse team has excelled in getting all these orders prepared and out the door in record time.
“The feedback we get from our customers tells us that they notice and appreciate our reliably fast service. Everyone is delighted to be receiving so many positive customer reviews!”
