Warehousing is not as simple as storing products on racks until they are required. It’s challenging and trends in logistics continue to make it harder each day. At Austwide Storage & Logistics we pride ourselves in being the best at warehouse management. We have top-notch systems that we use to make sure that all our clients get the very best of services. Below is a list of the top problems that can arise in a warehouse and how they can be solved.
1. Inventory inaccuracies
Inaccurate or incomplete records can make working in a warehouse a nightmare. Workers will not be able to locate any products when they need to retrieve them and when workers need to store products they may be directed to a location that is full already. This results in wasted time and effort and physical checks will need to be done to correct all the errors. This leads to delayed shipments and mis-picks.
At Austwide Storage & Logistics we have the right warehouse systems that are responsible for data recording so that nothing is always accounted for and can be retrieved at a moment’s notice.
2. Warehouse redundancies
Many warehouses struggle with unnecessary, excessive handling of products. Cases or pallets are moved to a number of intermediates which results in wasted time and duplication of information or duplicated data entry are also major timewasters. At Austwide Storage & Logistics we specialise in warehouse layouts that reduce redundancies and our modern warehouse execution systems also streamline warehouse activities.
3. Suboptimal picking
If products are not picked efficiently and on time that’s money being wasted. Picking, when done right, minimises time and movement which results in the maximum number of units being picked every hour. Warehouse automation can maximise the number of units being picked this is all done by taking full advantage of data reading and entry technologies. By so doing, there will not be any double handling or other inventory issues.
4. Product damage
There are many reasons why products get damaged when they are in a warehouse. Most of the damage takes place in how the product is handled. At Austwide Storage & Logistics we have modern racking and pallet flow systems that ensure that products are moved more carefully than before. There is a minimum separation of products that also prevents damage. Precise picking procedures also reduce the amount of product damage.
We realise there is no one-size-fits-all answer to any warehouse problem. This is why we take the time to understand the challenges and issues that are faced by each client that we serve.
