Overview of Warehouse Management
At the heart of every successful organization’s supply chain is an efficient and robust warehouse operation, leading to a business trusted by its customers. In fact, customers rank the area of shipping cost only just above that of speed as an influencing factor to where they take their business, showing clearly how important it is to have an effective warehouse operation. Warehouses are no longer simple storage facilities, but highly complex organisms where finished products are stored near to their consumers and within which complex operations take place.
There are a number of important and interlinked aspects to good warehouse management. It incorporates the organisation and control of all products entering, being stored and leaving the warehouse – including the picking, packing and shipping of these products, as well as making sure that the warehouse itself and its equipment runs efficiently. Constant vigilance is required to maintain this efficiency, with a focus on overseeing and constantly improving performance. To this end, businesses use various automation tools or Warehouse Management Systems.
Who should attend the course?
Those with an understanding of the vital nature of the role played by warehouse management to a business would benefit the most. However, anyone can attend.
