TESTIMONIALS

Newfoundland Central Health hired Five Alarm Distribution Consulting to assist in making recommendations to implement 5S and improve our inventory management processes at our central DC that supports our hospitals across the Island.

As a result of Five Alarms Distribution Consulting’s recommendations, we have seen considerable improvements throughout our operations! To be more specific, our picking time has been reduced by 25% and overall productivity has seen a significant increase, and we have only partially implemented the full recommendation! I recommend their services with full confidence!

Their strong communication skills helped to make each interaction productive. Ross Barnes of Five Alarm always responded quickly. The potential for growth within our company has now increased because of all that we learned from Five Alarm.

 Ross is a unique logistics professional that can take a concept and build a sustainable cost effective solution - from start to finish.  I would  recommend his services to solve any of your distribution and logistics challenges."

While I was at Dyson Canada, Ross managed our 3pl distribution during which time Dyson experienced significant and sustained growth each year

To keep up with our growth, Ross had to modify and develop strategies to deal with our ever changing requirements. Whether it was new product launches, end of month rushes, Black Friday, Boxing Week or peak season, Ross always made sure we were able to hit out sales targets without fail.
