Warehousing and Distribution
Since 2008 Stellar International has offered an in-house, fully integrated, electronic and online 3PL warehousing service. Although we work with a variety of customers Stellar specialises in picking a multiple number of orders each containing single or multiple SKU's which are required to be picked, packed and despatched regularly throughout the day.
We work within a modern, adaptable software platform that integrates with a number of customer ERP systems enabling an automated, seamless flow of data between our customer and warehouse. Stellar prides itself with particular focus on three key KPI's which hold operational priority;
- pick accuracy (we promise to maintain 99% > minimum)
- timeliness of despatch.
- Acknowledgement, processing and receipting of inwards goods
All three KPI's are considered a high priority and are measured and shared with the customer either online or through regular reporting.
The Auckland warehouse was first, followed quickly by Christchurch. By having distribution centres (DC's) located in both main islands of New Zealand supply chain best practise can be achieved in holding stock and distributing from both or either location based on final delivery point and/or current stock holdings. This allows for optimum delivery times as well offers much reduced trucking and courier costs. Both locations can be accessed thru the same online portal simultaneously.
Order status as well despatch and "in transit" visibility, proof of delivery (POD's), stock on hand, historical stock movements are but some of the online functionality offered.
