The client supplies corporate branded merchandise to motor racing teams, competing in a global championship. Merchandise is required by pop-up concession stores at each race circuit and must be delivered in advance of the race weekend, lasting just 4 days. Timeframes are tight and must be met.
The challenge was to provide inventory management of 500 product lines across multiple storage locations, receiving of client orders (24/7/365) and dispatching directly to theatres within agreed timescales.

The challenge was to manage all local customs & tax requirements as well as deliveries to customer door whilst avoiding involvement from the end-customer.
