Material Consolidation

Bunzl Retail provides material consolidation services as part of a complete retail supply chain management program.

As retail specialists, Bunzl Retail understands the aggressive construction timelines and budgets retailers face in today’s competitive market. To help streamline projects and reduce costs, Bunzl Retail Material Consolidation Services (MCS) partners with retailers to manage the supply of fixtures and signage for new stores, remodels and promotions.

Bunzl Retail MCS deconsolidates, consolidates, stocks, sorts, stages and distributes fixtures and signage for more than 1,000 store openings and remodels annually. This comprehensive process is highly efficient and cost effective due to Bunzl Retail’s national scale, best-in-class logistics platform and deep experience managing store supply programs.

Every construction project begins with a clear understanding of the material requirements and critical installation milestones for each store. Bunzl Retail MCS schedules, coordinates and tracks the flow of materials from source to store using sophisticated project management systems.

These advanced systems guide a fulfillment process that guarantees just-in-time delivery for immediate installation at 99.9% fill rates. This unsurpassed level of service eliminates the frustration and cost overruns caused by lost or damaged goods, expedited freight and store construction delays.

As projects progress, real-time status reports give customers peace of mind that their materials will arrive on schedule. When construction plans change or emergencies occur, Bunzl Retail MCS project managers are available around the clock to ensure a smooth process.
