In his spare time, he came be found out on the trails running with his wife, son and two crazy spaniels. He loves a long ‘bimble’, which normally consists of running races between 26 – 100 miles.

Best of beer

At Move Fresh we are excited to onboard a new premium beer customer delivering a carefully curated monthly selection of tasty US beers for their D2C and B2B customers.

We worked with this client to bring barcoded picks for full accuracy, traceability and transparency through our Move Fresh warehouse system, all linked to our easy install Shopify API. We are also in the midst of a project with the brand for a managed packaging service and packing standards that meet their premium beer offer.

Get in touch to see how we can help upgrade your e-commerce fulfilment.

Time for review???

So how did your busy period go? We’ve had a busy end to the year at Move Fresh successfully onboarding an innovative new wine sector customer on the run up to a busy festive period and we look forward to several new brands coming on stream with us in January.

This is a great time of year to review your 3PL arrangements and we would be delighted to talk to brands looking for a food specialist and flexible fulfilment partner that can really deliver. In particular, the end of 2022 has shown the carrier network to be creaking at the seams so finding trusted partners for your brand has never been more important.

Get in touch to see how we can help.

Wine Fulfilment

This weekend we are setting up a new on-line client for fulfilment. This innovative wine seller had outgrown their warehouse and wanted to focus on the brand and growing their business; so last orders left from just outside of London on Friday, they loaded up the trucks and the next day we have the stock here.

The Move Fresh warehouse team are setting up bulk storage and pick locations ready for shipments on Monday morning. Our client has uploaded all the product data to our warehouse systems and having developed a new order interface for their specific needs we will be picking by barcode on Monday.

Want your ecommerce business to focus on sales and let us do fulfilment then get in touch.

Make the Move over a coffee…

Connecting your web store to our warehouse system couldn’t be easier. Your coffee will still be warm, as just 10 minutes connects your Shopify to our warehouse to give you full visibility on stock, product batch traceability and all your orders. We also connect seamlessly to carrier systems. Really is that simple.

Not using Shopify, we have rapid integrations available for WooCommerce and API capability for other store formats.

Scotland Food & Drink Fortnight 2022

We are proud members of Scotland Food & Drink and excited to be involved in this year’s fortnight celebration of all things great in Scottish Food. The industry is a BIG contributor to Scotland’s economy. It is worth around £14 billion each year and accounts for one in five manufacturing jobs.

At Move Fresh we want to help the 18,850 Scottish food and drink businesses (or at least some of them!!) to grow their brand through direct-to-consumer channels. We make fulfilment easy with food focused warehousing, attractive logistics rates and systems that connect your web store to our warehouse and carriers in real-time. All of this ensures you get to focus on producing great food and your brand.

Reach out to Ewan or Iain and we’ll work through your requirements with you, whether you are looking to grow direct to consumer or are just starting on your journey in D2C.

Real Living Wage

Here at Move Fresh we have just confirmed our accreditation as a Real Living Wage employer.

The Real Living Wage is the only UK wage rate calculated according to the costs of living. Employers choose to pay the real Living Wage on a voluntary basis, recognising the value of their workers and ensuring that a hard day’s work receives a fair day’s pay.

Since 2011 the Living Wage movement has delivered a pay rise to over 52,000 people in Scotland and put over £310 million extra into the pockets of low paid Scottish workers.

You can view our registration and find out more about Real Living Wage employers here.

Warehouse Management Systems (WMS)

Over the last ten years we have used a multitude of warehouse management systems. In the food industry the majority of systems are used to dealing with the stock holding unit rather than the retail unit.

At Move Fresh most of our customers buy the retail unit, which brings a multitude of differences to life.

To that end we launched our own warehouse management system (Warehouse Buddy) specifically designed for D2C FMCG businesses.

Our KPIs are easily accessible both internally and to brands that we manage their fulfillment. No humans are involved in the connection between website and the order processing (unlike most 3PL providers)

This software is automatically included when you use our fulfillment services
