There are many risks and challenges when looking at the supply chain for high value goods. These goods incorporate stock from across many different industries and markets, from Jewellery to IT products to Homeware. Goods of high value require security and insurance within the warehouse and distribution, along with the peace of mind that your goods are safe. It can be challenging to find a secure supply chain, especially finding a company offering the complete solution of warehousing and distribution.
There are key criteria for your supply chain partner to meet, especially when your goods are of high value. During the decision making process, these elements are important to assess and understand.
Damages to both packaging and stock is one key aspect. Packaging needs to be kept intact and minimal movement should take place, both within the warehouse and during distribution. Damaged goods can result in a damaged brand. Coupled with damages is stock loss, as high value goods are liable to theft. Finding a warehouse which have a low record of damages and stock loss is vital for high value goods.
Supply chain management and communication are both vital to ensuring that all consignments are both stored and delivered to meet all requirements. Supply chain management is achieved via a Transport Management System (TMS) and Warehouse Management System (WMS). These systems are put in place to assist with the everyday operations, including stock check, bookings, vehicle monitoring and much more.

Providing a secure supply chain, with expertise in high-value goods, is a prime offering from the NX Group. With many measures in place to keep goods secure throughout the supply chain.
The NX Group provide different warehousing options, depending on the type of goods. For high value stock, the TAPA A certified facility is highly secure, with security measures in place such as CCTV, body scanners and G4S Patrol. Warehouses with this level of security are hard to find, especially within a desirable location. Using facilities such as this one gives you peace of mind that your goods are safe and secure.

We understand the impact damages can have on a company, therefore we do all that we can to ensure processes are in place to avoid them.
Alongside warehousing, customers also require secure distribution, either into retailers or direct to the end user. The NX Group have a dedicated fleet to carry out secure distribution across the UK. The fleet is monitored; therefore your goods have full traceability throughout the whole supply chain process.
The dedicated transport network covers most of the UK on a next day delivery service, reaching customers including retailers, companies across the UK, residential addresses and many more locations. This is achieved with minimum handling of goods – stock is only handled to load onto our vehicles and unload at the customer premises.
