How to make sure your warehouse is efficient

With demand so high these days for an excellent supply chain, chances are your competitors are doing everything they can to make their warehouse as efficient as possible. Just a few simple changes can make all the difference to your efficiency – So how can you make sure your warehouse is performing at its best?

Start at the very beginning. Your receiving and labelling process needs to be watertight, to ensure when goods arrive they make it eventually to the right destination.

Stop with all the walking! Plan the layout of your warehouse to ensure that walking between destinations is kept to an absolute minimum.

Do you measure up? You should keep a continuous record of your KPIs, costings and productivity to ensure that the performance of your warehouse is always improving.

It’s all about the feedback. Make sure your warehouse is open and transparent, giving employees the opportunity to give feedback on how things can be improved.
