To ensure our training is realistic and of maximum benefit our warehouse training is provided in a fully functioning warehouse where we collect, package, and deliver numerous products for various companies in the local area.

About this hub
Would you like to ask us something or take a look around the warehouse?
In the meantime the following info will tell you everything you need to know about our services on offer at Oakwood Packaging.
On site we have a fully functioning warehouse/packaging department.
The training in this department includes but is not limited to:
- Working as a team
- Time management
- The ability to work on your own
- Customer service skills
- Counting and sorting
We have contracts with a variety of companies.
For example, we recently packed hessian bags with gifts and leaflets to be given out to runners at the end of a marathon.
We also count, pack and label building materials for local companies.
Every day is different and there is nearly always more than one job on the go at any one time.
