Dacha SSI designed and implemented a robust security program to streamline Advance Supply Chain’s new 337,000sqft warehouse security. Reducing security and management costs.
While growth is always welcomed, it presents challenges that have to be managed, especially when you are expanding rapidly. When you are opening up multiple new warehouses with millions of pounds worth of stock, the need for robust security is paramount. To facilitate their rapid expansion, Advanced Supply Chain had to acquire a large, 337,000 square foot facility to help meet growing customer demands.
At their new site, space is no longer a problem, but there were many other challenges. Security measures were severely lacking. Before stock could be placed in the new facility, it had to be made safe and secure both for the stock that was to be held and the staff that were needed to work at the warehouse.
There were many security challenges at the new facility. Following a risk assessment of the facility, several security risks were identified. The facility was located in an area known to have high levels of criminality, so the usual security threats of theft and vandalism were increased, as was theft from trailers moving about the facility. Another key risk identified was infiltration by organized gangs to conduct large-scale theft.
