Teamwork Handling Ltd, the Pocklington based fulfilment company has gained certification from the Soil Association to handle e-commerce orders for organic health supplements. Already licensed for pharmaceutical products and alcohol this accreditation ensures that Teamwork Handling is one of very few, if not the only, fulfilment businesses in the UK offering storage, pick, pack and dispatch of these three specialties.
Organic certification by the Soil Association is not just a box-ticking exercise, fulfilment companies need to satisfy criteria such as staff hygiene regimes, regular and documented facility cleaning schedules, strict processes for goods receipt, methods of accurate stock control and adequate training for all staff.
Teamwork Handling has been based at Allerthorpe Business Park for almost 10 years since moving from Dunnington in 2007. Magnus Roche (Managing Director) said
“We have been licensed by the MHRA to handle all manner of pharmaceutical product for around 20 years now, and with booze and organic capability in place, we’re delighted to be able to offer a full handling solution in all of these areas, it really sets us apart from the norm.”
On the process of gaining Soil Association certification he explained:
“Working to standard operating procedures regularly audited by the MHRA for the last 20 years means that we were well placed to gain Organic accreditation with little additional effort but the Soil Association audit really tests your capabilities.”
The company has developed its own fulfilment software known as THOLOS which allows clients to place orders and manage inventory and sales force usage in real time on this web-based system.
“THOLOS is very smart but extremely easy to use. Startup businesses can use it simply to place orders and manage stock and larger operations can manage sales teams and control spend as well as accessing full activity and inventory reports 24/7 anywhere they have an internet connection.”
