A.F Blakemore chooses supply chain planning partner

Privately owned businesses, A.F Blakemore & Sons, which operates across retail, foodservice, and the largest SPAR wholesaler in the UK, has chosen REFLEX Solutions, which is a provider of unified supply chain and retail planning solutions, to automate and optimise its supply chain processes.

The integrated system uses artificial intelligence as well as machine learning-based analytics, and replaces AF Blakemore’s previous arrangement of multiple overlapping ERP systems and manual spreadsheets. 

Marc Deakin, Supply Chain Director at A.F Blakemore said: “RELEX has a well-earned reputation based on their in-depth understanding of the convenience and grocery sector, including long-term relationships working with other SPAR franchise operators in both the UK and mainland Europe and also the performance of their technology solutions in streamlining and improving multiple supply chain processes through automation.

“With our powered automated planning system, we aim to improve availability of in-store stock for customers, while also reducing waste and freeing up staff to focus on other core tasks.”

Intralogistics operations across supply chains have had a steady stream of disruptions over recent years due to the pandemic and Brexit, but there are still hundreds of providers across the UK which keep operations going smoothly.

Many of these can be found at the UK’s biggest warehousing exhibition; IntraLogisteX. 

Find out more information about booking a stand or attending the show on the 19th & 20th March 2024, NEC Birmingham, Hall 6!
