Are You Running A Seamless Warehouse?
When it comes to running a seamless warehouse, three very important factors come into play — strong leadership, constant improvement of warehouse operations, and optimising your workforce. As part of this optimising workforce, efficiency should be an ongoing process in a warehouse. The less time and effort that’s wasted getting a task done, the healthier the bottom line will look.
Below is a simple yet important checklist to ensuring a seamless warehouse:
- Eliminate the amount of travel within the facility to decrease the labour task time
- Reduce the number of processes or steps to simplify any task to decrease the labour task time
- Get rid of paper-based operations to reduce errors and or better communication
- Reduce product handling to minimise labour task time.
- Leveraging the latest technologies available which can do better planning and helps to execute the operations to give a competitive advantage
