Slick Warehousing – Collaboration is the Key
Ensuring your supply chain is performing to the maximum takes open and frank conversations with team members who are responsible for their particular part of the operation, and in whom you trust. This could be your 3PL provider, your haulier, your warehouse team, your manufacturer, your delivery operators and your customer services. Discussions of this nature are sometimes hard to undertake as no one wants to admit that they do have room for improvement, however we are sure that most will agree that achieving supply chain perfection in order to fulfil the demands of your customers is almost impossible without the use of good technology.
This means its adoption and utilisation across all aspects of your supply chain from supplier to end user to ensure the safe and on time delivery of quality goods. In order to safeguard you have the right technology in place for your operation it is imperative that you have open and frank conversations with your technology providers.
This is no more important than in the warehouse. A poorly operating and ailing warehouse can be detrimental to; and can have a knock on effect throughout; the supply chain. Plenty of options are available to increase efficiency, including bar codes, radio frequency, pick-to-label, pick-to-light, and voice-activated technologies. These technologies are designed to provide different levels of increased picking productivity, warehouse throughput and improved accuracy. However understanding all that is available can be a minefield and sometimes companies can be misled into purchasing a technology that is not suited to their operation.
