To match the demand for ever shorter lead-times, the development of KanBan, Direct Line Feed and JIT delivery systems has been extended. Using a dedicated storage area, specialist trolleys and racks, and returnable packaging this method of supply now accounts for more than 60% of business – with lead times for KanBan supply as short as next day for some local customers.

For higher demand product, an internal KanBan system ensures continuity of supply for scheduled deliveries.
