Route Planning

As we have already explained above and as illustrated by the map to the right, our regular delivery area is vast. As a result, we carefully plan our delivery schedule to ensure our vehicles are covering as great an area as possible on their journey each day. We take every customer request into account when planning routes however it is a fine balance between customer service, efficiency and logistics.

When you become a customer of Bako we will do everything in our power to deliver your goods on a day that suits you. If that is not possible then we will liase with you to find the next best solution.


Warehouse and Distribution

Warehouse and Distribution

The Warehouse operates 24 hours a day throughout the working week, with different shifts controlling all goods inwards, order picking and order assembly, in preparation for the next morning’s despatch.

The separate cold storage facility keeps all products at a constant    -20 degrees centigrade and has enough capacity to hold 600 pallets of goods in the 10 metre high facility. The freezer and chiller are fully alarmed and monitored 24 hours a day, ensuring the temperature is kept to the pre-determined levels.

The extensive loading bay allows for all ambient orders to be marshalled prior to loading ready for delivery. Careful planning at this stage ensures temperature sensitive products are loaded promptly, straight from the freezer. This also provides another opportunity to carefully check the order against the information received from the customer. The loading bays are equipped with dock levellers to allow easy loading and unloading of vehicles.
