It’s that time of year again! Black Friday and Cyber Monday are almost upon us, and it can be a make or break time for your warehouse. Here’s how you can make sure your warehouse is Black Friday ready.

Is your warehouse running efficiently? Make sure your space is used effectively, and that items are stored in a way that is most efficient to cut down picking and packing times, plus making the job as easy as possible for the team. Monitor your popular AND unpopular items to ensure your warehouse is properly stocked. Making sure your space is being used effectively is half the battle!

What about workflow? Making the job as smooth as possible for the team has a huge impact. Storing items by key categories and making sure everything is properly labelled are simple changes that can make a huge difference. Incentives and benefits during busy times are a perk to consider offering your hard working team.

Stay agile. Things can change, despite a huge amount of planning! Make sure your warehouse is ready to change workflows should something unexpected happen, and encourage excellent and continued communication at all times.
