Barry Storage & Distribution have worked in the storage of goods in all forms since the early 1970’s.
Back in 1971, BSD utilised the vacant dockside warehouses and had the capacity of storing shipped goods from all over the world, working with the S&K Haulage’s transportation division it made the one stop shop in collecting, storing then redistribution to a huge armada of customers and to this day this is still the case.
In 1984, S&K moved to new premises on David Davies Road, where the operation still exists today. One of the first things that Neil Kidby the MD did was build extra warehouses on site which have been busy to this current day.
In 2016, BSD made an acquisition of the adjacent land and buildings in an expansion program for the extra demand in increased warehousing. Within months the building was completely refurbished and transformed into a purpose built operation to include two dedicated loading docks and multi storage bays for segregation.
BSD also offers a picking & sorting operation for its customers and a pallet wrap facility with the Lantec automatic wrap system.
Our Warehousing Services can offer the following:
There is a 5,400 pallet space warehouse and distribution centre on our enclosed premises. This can be used to store long-term items, short-term items, raw materials and finished goods. There is also the facility to store full loads and call off one item of raw materials or finished goods at a time, this can be picked & packed and sent straight onto your customer to save time at your site. This service can be used when there is a volume fluctuation, to free up valuable warehousing and production space at your site or possibly a cost saving operation.
Picking requests or e-mails are received daily to despatch the relevant goods. The current lead-time for picking is the same or one day and for urgent deliveries it is immediate. Upon receipt of a pick ticket, products are removed from their storage location and checked by batch numbers and quantities. The customer labels and barcodes are applied to the packaging. The product is put onto the appropriate pallets and shrunk wrapped or banded if required. The material is then moved to the transit warehouse on site prior to final customer delivery.
We have located at our Barry site a heated store, which can raise and maintain the temperature of materials when required. The temperature range of this facility is from 0 to + 25 degrees centigrade. The heating process can be assisted by the use of heating body belts and heating jackets etc.
We have located at our Barry site a refrigerated store, which can lower and maintain the temperature of materials when required. The temperature range of this facility is from 0 to – 25 degrees centigrade. To assist the reduction of temperature dry ice or inert gases can be used.
S&K has a static storage fleet, which consists of liquid tank, refrigerated or heated, box van, PSK, flat, skeletal, euroliner and tautliner trailers. This method of storage is used when the customer wants to keep a tight control of their products or raw materials. These trailers can be left on your site for an unlimited period of time or the trailers can be parked at our 24 hour manned site, when short of space in your parking area.
