How can I maximize the efficiency of my warehousing and storage solution?
Work with your logistics partner to have a warehousing optimization plan & re-evaluate it every quarter.
Your plan should include the adoption of a well-integrated warehouse management system that offers a single source of truth to manage inventory & labor, automate the packing & transportation process, and even group items by pick location.
It also helps to stay abreast with the latest warehousing and associated logistics trends.
What is the difference between warehousing and storage
Commonly, warehousing and storage are terms used in place of each other. But, they do not mean the same thing. While storage is all about keeping goods in a depository, warehousing is a term that encompasses the process of receiving, storing, and disbursing the goods. The physical space where the goods are stored is sometimes called a warehouse.
What types of goods can be stored in our warehouses
You can store almost any type of goods in a warehouse, from commodities to packing materials, spare parts, or finished goods. But each type of SKU will have a different storage requirement. For instance, storage of gasoline will be very different from that of perishable food items.
Thus it would be advisable to partner with a logistics company that offers unique warehousing & associated logistics solutions to suit your business’ needs.
What factors to consider when evaluating a warehousing solution
When shopping around for a warehouse management system, you need to evaluate if it :
- Has a user-friendly interface
- Powers warehouse automation
- Reduces warehousing costs
- Seamlessly integrates with your legacy systems
- Can deliver custom solutions to meet your business’ unique needs
- Can improve the space utilization, inventory management, and pick accuracy
Or, you can just partner with GEODIS and speak to one of our experts about our bespoke warehousing and distribution services.
How to ensure that my warehousing and storage solution is compliant with applicable laws and regulations?
There are a lot of regulations and laws that govern warehousing and storage of goods. And these laws also vary from geography to geography. Thus, it is best to on-board an expert in supply chain compliance to vet your warehousing and storage solution’s ability to follow safety procedures and industry compliance regulations.
