Oxfordshire, England – July 29th, 2019 – Morrisons has selected Thruvision’s people screening technology as part of continued investment into new security technologies being deployed across all its UK distribution centre network.
Looking to maximise profit protection functions and improve operational efficiencies, the UK grocery retailer, Wm Morrisons PLC, partnered with Thruvision to support their loss prevention strategy. The retailer is employing Thruvision’s people screening solutions to reduce loss, improve distribution centre operations and protect employees.
‘As we continue to invest in our depot security infrastructure, we are delighted to be working with Thruvision to bring innovation to our physical security programme.’ David Oliver, Senior Loss Prevention Manager, Morrisons.
Traditional distribution centre security consists of often ineffective metal detectors and invasive wands, resulting in unseen theft and HR issues. Thruvision’s people screening solution captures all types of items including liquids, foodstuffs, cosmetics, tobacco, electronics and clothing. The system is completely safe, proven and fast.
‘We are extremely proud that Morrisons will be utilising Thruvision screening as a key technology in their DC security infrastructure.’ Alex Brundle, Vice President of Profit Protection Sales, Thruvision.
