Aldi: Striving for Excellence

Aldi has been operating in the UK for over 27 years, growing significantly from when it entered the UK market, to having over 700 stores nationwide today.

As a retailer that stocks a smaller, more carefully selected product range, they need to ensure these products are always available on shelf, and so Aldi’s efficient operation is run 24 hours a day, 7 days a week.

To maintain the high standards of productivity needed in such a demanding environment, investment in equipment and people is crucial, as is the determination to strive for continuous improvement across each of its nine UK Distribution Centres.

Given this focus on improvement, Aldi has engaged Davies & Robson to support the smooth running of its operation. Aldi places particular importance on health and safety to ensure the security and wellbeing of its employees and customers. Doing so requires a partner able to support a fast-growing business that opens several new stores every month.

Davies & Robson, in conjunction with Aldi, has developed a range of process checks to promote the application of best practice across its transport and warehousing operations. Such measures provide a cost-effective way to improve productivity and safeguard from operational failure, helping to keep Aldi’s shelves well stocked.
