Warehouse operational improvement is an important concept as operations tend to grow organically over time. With businesses adding new product ranges, changing product cube profiles, order profiles shift and peaks become more erratic and difficult to deal with. With each challenge, the warehouse team introduces new processes, often aimed at eliminating a particular bottleneck.
Firefighting and dealing with emergency orders become the norm and warehouse operating costs continue to increase.
Taking a step back and looking at all the processes as a “network of coordinated activities”, allows The Logistics Business to identify short and medium term operational savings for the customer.
Our proven track record has helped our customers to save between 15% and 30% (and often also higher) in warehouse staffing cost.
