supply chain control services.  In particular Menlo's transport management
services (TMS) and Lean philosophy are employed to implement a programme of
continuous improvement within customers' international supply chains.

organization with a wide range of consumer or business-to-business products and
a need to integrate and optimize its supply chain across multiple brands. Apply
the resources of its multi-user facilities such as Genk, Menlo becomes a
critical outsourced component of the customer's supply chain by establishing a
centralized European distribution hub.  The DC works in harmony with a flexible
supply chain management solution that can be adapted to the customer's changing
marketing and production demands.  

Menlo's Genk facility is operating as a multi-user facility for companies
distributing product throughout  Europe  and has capacity to extend its services
to further users both regional and international.
