Long term solutions & strategies

For each of these different time frames develop a minimum of three specific value roles warehousing activity could provide in such a situation. Think about what items will be needed in each specific timeframe, what transportation mode will we use, how will we distribute the goods, and how will the goods be stored in the warehouse?

The days of managing inventory in warehouses with pen and paper have disappeared.

A Warehouse Management System Saves Space

When inventory is managed correctly, warehouse space can be saved. In other words, it enables accurate stocking, slotting and pulling of orders, giving companies the opportunity gain higher-level insights into how much of each item is truly needed. Therefore, they can reduce overstock and minimize understock simultaneously to save space.

It Increases Customer Satisfaction and Service

The warehouse management system (WMS) also promotes customer satisfaction and service by reducing errors in the order fulfillment process. Also, the system ensures customers receive undamaged products and promptly. Thus, the number of customer complaints decreases and improves operations.
