Business students experience real-world example of retail distribution

Before half term, BTS business students were given the opportunity to visit a warehouse as an introduction to their work on retail distribution.

John Nicholls very kindly offered students the chance to have a look around their warehouse, picking shop and show room, exposing them to the business and giving a valuable insight into how it works. Managers and Supervisors were on hand to demonstrate the various processes involved in their line of work and to answer the students’ questions.

Steph McNeil, Business Liaison Coordinator, commented: “The visit was very insightful and we are grateful to John Nicholls for providing this opportunity to our students. The aim was to provide them with an understanding of retail logistics and distribution before they embark on the academic unit and it proved to be a very useful introduction to the topic.”
