Yale helps to lift online warehouse exchange platform off the ground.
Yale®has helped to launch the innovative platform, Warehouse Exchange, a new venture by the company behind Returnloads.net.
After success with a similar tool in the haulage industry, the company is now turning its hand to the UK warehouse market with the support of Yale.
Aimed at warehouses with unutilised space, the new Warehouse Exchange platform enables providers to easily advertise and sell their available space to businesses with a need for on-demand warehouse solutions.
“The philosophy behind the Warehouse Exchange programme neatly coincides with the approach to productivity held by Yale,” explains Yale Brand Marketing Manager Iain Friar. “The service provided by the platform will allow businesses a more efficient way of finding storage solutions, while generating extra revenue for warehouse providers by fully maximising the space they have available.”
Customers in need of storage space can search for a warehouse provider or submit an enquiry through the platform and have providers contact them directly. The intelligent matching system analyses the information provided by the warehouse operators, from space available to the type of goods thatcan be stored and additional services offered, and sends out an alert to warehouse providers who can fulfil the customer’s requirement.
There is a high demand for warehouse space at short notice in the UK from businesses with un-forecasted stock movements. Warehouse Exchange allows businesses to quickly find a solution that meets their needs.
Yale has supported Warehouse Exchange from the early stages leading up to its launch, and will continue to work closely on the further development and expansion of the platform.
“The on-demand nature of the logistics industry will only continue to grow. Warehouse Exchange is a prime example of how this can be achieved, and Yale is excited to be part of it,” continues Iain.
