Computer 2000 has launched a scheme to centralise its logistics in one warehouse in Belgium, starting today with IBM disk drives. The move will control the distributor’s operations in seven countries for IBM storage products at the outset. It will later spread to the rest of Europe for all vendors. Computer 2000's centralised warehouse near Brussels covers buying, product management, inventory holding and distribution. There are no plans to centralise sales and marketing. Andy Gass, Computer 2000 deputy MD, said Cisco would also use the one warehouse for its high-end networking products within a month. Manufacturers will have one point of contact for shipping and billing, instead of delivering to around 24 individual warehouses. Customers will get immediate delivery on high volume orders. Gass said: "It makes sense from a pan-European point of view. There will be some local stock holdings, but only for small run-rate products." Gass said the company was also looking at expanding the scheme to its consumables business. ®
