Chorley-based fulfilment services specialist fulfilmentcrowd has invested a further £30,000 in a new high-density order picking system and automated dispatch conveyors.

The five-figure investment in its Matrix Park fulfilment centre creates more than 3,000 new picking locations.

fulfilmentcrowd hopes to develop a ‘centre of excellence’ for niche online retailers operating in the buoyant fashion, health and beauty sectors.

The equipment was fitted by project Sperrin Metal and Preston-based AS Conveyor Systems.

Lee Thompson, sales and marketing director, said: “Applied management science and intelligent technology set us apart from competitors, and our enhanced capability to handle smaller, fragile and delicate items will drive further business growth.”

Product-specific storage and automated dispatching systems have boosted fulfilmentcrowd’s capacity during a period of sustained growth, resulting in an 11 per cent increase in first quarter revenues over the same period last year.

Lee added: “The new handling equipment will increase productivity and dovetail nicely with our industry-leading fulfilment systems and integration capabilities.

“Continued investment in our centres is testimony to our belief in the growth potential of the e-commerce sector and will help us maintain a competitive advantage in order fulfilment services.”
