Warehouse and distribution centres are under increasing pressure to reduce costs and improve margins. A recent study shows that nearly 8 out of 10 (80%) warehouse managers have been tasked to find cost saving opportunities for existing operations. Our in-depth analyses of warehouses processes show that saving time and money on improving current, inefficient workflows can take the pressure off and help to cut costs. Our studies have identified that whilst collecting data from every pallet movement is a necessary evil, the way in which it is done can cost you unnecessary time and money.
The below infographic will help you to understand the issues around data collection and how much time you could save by improving this process. We have also identified what steps you need to be take in order to make every pallet move 10-15 seconds quicker and as such, maximise the efficiency of your warehouse operations. The rewards that you can gain from improving your data collection process are also outlined and include:
- Increasing pallet throughout
- Reducing time spent looking for pallets
- Reducing time spent on stock reconciliation
- Maximising inventory accuracy
- Reducing mis-picks
- Improving efficiency of operators
