Jefferson Ford Parts

Jefferson Ford Parts has long been renowned as one of Australia’s premier suppliers of genuine car parts for this legendary make with massive stock holdings and nationwide logistics. Their on-shelf range of spare parts includes everything from filters, spark plugs, and brake pads to interior and exterior trims, sensors, and switches, alloy wheels, engines, clutches, and much, much more. 

Brief

As the national distribution hub of automotive spare parts for several dealerships, Jefferson Ford Parts wanted to increase the amount of stock they were able to hold and accommodate.

Recent changes to parts packaging had rendered their traditional storage methods ineffective.

The brief was to increase warehouse storage capacity, design and supply the storage solution and project manage the installation over several stages.

Solution

Bowen Storage reconfigured the warehouse layout to improve efficiency and throughput, including moving the courier pick up area to the rear of the warehouse where there was better car parking and loading facilities.

Spare parts shelving was also relocated, increasing available floor space for pallet racking.

An innovative storage solution for vehicle bumper bars was designed, supplied, and implemented, remedying the common challenge among automotive spare parts dealers of how to store bulky stock safely and efficiently.

Mesh decking to cater to the varying sizes and shapes of automotive spare parts was supplied for the pallet racking, affording Jefferson Group greater flexibility when storing inventory.

Results

By redesigning the warehouse layout, storage capacity, efficiency, and productivity have been increased, enabling the Jefferson team to more effectively deliver the best service experience possible to their automotive network.

The Boscotek high-density drawer storage cabinets resulted in saving up to 30% on the footprint of traditional small parts storage methods. Ideally suited to small automotive parts, this compact solution also improved productivity by increasing the ease and speed with which parts were able to be identified and retrieved.

The installation of the project was managed by Bowen Storage and carried out in two stages, over four weeks.

The downtime was minimised by liaising closely with the client and installing the storage systems around their existing stock and daily order picking schedules.
