Black Friday and Christmas: Is your depot prepared for this hectic time?

by Debbie Mann

With Black Friday and Christmas around the corner, is your depot ready and prepared?

Black Friday is the biggest shopping day of the year and is just a matter of weeks away. Britons spent a record £5.8 billion over the four days between Black Friday and Cyber Monday 2016, with Black Friday 2017 set to see Britons spending even more.

As of Black Friday, online orders and delivery will be hectic all the way through to the January sales, with depots and distribution centres across the UK all working to get orders delivered on time.

With an immense number of deliveries, your depot needs to have effective line markings, to ensure you can run efficiently around this busy time.

We offer a range of floor markings for depots and distribution centres, which can help to improve efficiency. These markings include:

  1. Parking bays for forklifts, lorries and other vehicles
  2. Loading and unloading bays
  3. Health and Safety markings, including hatched areas, pedestrian walkways and zebra crossings 


Factory Floor marking

It is important that your depot has these markings in place, as they will help to ensure that your depot runs smoothly, whilst keeping your employees safe when they are operating vehicles and walking around the depot floor.  

We can visit your depot/distribution centre to mark out any of the markings we have mentioned, so you are prepared for the hectic festive season ahead.
