Teaching sound warehouse practices in Kenya

A global consumer goods company with operations in Kenya was constantly running short of products to fulfill orders due to lack of proper storage and inadequate warehouse management. The storage problem was compounded by directives from the head office that required varied stock levels to be maintained -- 1, 2 or 6 month supplies -- depending on volatile conditions in Egypt, its largest market in Africa. Agility put things right with adequate, secure warehousing space of about 8,000 sqm for product storage, and then trained the customer’s staff in basic warehouse operations, record keeping and inventory planning. Now, in warehouses managed by Agility, the company and its customers no longer experience delays and shortages.
