I have used Hatmill on a number of occasions ranging from single day’s consultancy for advice and support on a specific topic, right up to much larger projects. I have always found the team engaging, pragmatic and with a real focus on delivering agreed outputs. They have a wealth of knowledge within Logistics and Supply Chain and importantly they really got to know Arco and understand our business. This combination has always led to high-quality output and delivery.

We chose Hatmill due to their reputation and proven track record in warehousing design and move management. They always took the time to engage with key stakeholders, understanding the business needs before designing their solutions. Their ability to keep the project on track and the team focused enabled us to complete the complex transition from two warehouses to a single new site ahead of schedule.

Hatmill operational support has been utilised on specific projects over the last two years and has included warehouse layout review and stock management systems and process guidance.
