Thank you for agreeing to participate in the first annual Distribution Centre Survey.
Please remember that all of the data you provide will be treated as strictly confidential. It will never be attributed to you directly.
All data is collated and analyzed by Mark Emmott and the team at Retail Knowledge. No other individual or organization will have access to the raw data you submit.
When completing the Survey questions, please provide data covering the last 12 month period for which you have data collated. Please state at the beginning of the form the 12 month period to which the data relates.
For the purposes of this Survey we define a Distribution Centre as ‘somewhere that fulfils customer/store orders/returns for e-commerce, a facility that picks/packs retail stock for stores, and not simply a bulk storage facility/warehouse, or a facility which holds stock within your logistical network prior to distribution.’ Please only provide data that relates to operations that fall within this definition.
Please note that it is NOT possible to save a part completed survey for completion at a later date. Please read through the questions and make sure that you are in a position to provide answers to all questions before you start filling in the Survey. However, once you have the raw data to hand you will be able to complete the Survey very quickly.
Thanks in advance.
Steve Teatum Group Head of Loss Prevention Next Plc Chair of the Steering Committee for the Annual Distribution Centre Survey 2019
