Warehousing and distribution have 'morphed' into a finely-tuned orchestration of labour activities, technology systems and reporting data analytics to optimize overhead and expenses. Businesses who must perform their own warehousing of finished products for distribution to their supply chain network rely on 'Lean' principles and techniques for optimal efficiency of their Operations.
Warehouse systems have made phenomenal advancements using technology for RF Scanners and 'tablet' applications to bring technology directly to the warehouse floor for ease-of-use with guaranteed accuracy and improved turn-around times.
Business leaders know that WAGES represent a large 'bucket' of weekly expenses that increase proportionately with a business's growth. Even with partial automation in light industrial distribution centre settings, 'on-demand' labour facilitates a multitude of mission-critical, KPI driven activities and oh-so-important resulting metrics.
Applying 'Lean' supply-chain principles to vital tasks like inventory management, health & safety and SOP's (standard operating procedures) will continue to challenge companies to manage costs and profits by turning to technology. Why? Because in a long-standing process-driven, warehouse and distribution business model, the largest areas of the expense will continue to be the largest challenges to overcome and largest opportunity areas to locate savings and restore Shareholder confidence.
