OCS helps The Sun build with Lego!
May 14th saw the The Sun launch a major promotion giving readers an opportunity to redeem free Lego toys on presentation of an in-paper voucher at branches of WH Smith and Toys R Us.
Toys arrived from Denmark at the OCS Logistics Centre in Coventry for processing and onward despatch to the retail outlets.
Gary Billingham, manager of the multi-site OCS Midlands logistics business division stated:
"Toys only arrived shortly before they were due in-store so timelines were tight. Inventory had to be controlled closely as the right quantities needed to be in the right store on the right day. With the country's biggest selling paper and one of the
world's most popular toys, the quantities were huge and no margin for error"
