Your Guide to Warehousing and Distribution

Gain an understanding of warehousing best practices and learn how to improve the flow and accuracy of inventory.

Warehousing is a critical component of an organization's many supply chains. However, warehousing including land, equipment, various levels of automation, labor, insurance, and many other factors is a large expense for any organization. An efficiently run warehouse minimizes total cost of warehousing. Warehousing and a distribution warehouse have different focuses: hold product safely and move product in and out quickly respectively. Warehousing best practices include important decisions about location, how many warehouses, layout, material handling equipment, level of automation, warehouse management software, storage, storage equipment, inventory location, receiving, and shipping guidelines. There are distinct areas within the warehouse that impact the flow and accuracy of inventory and ultimately customer service. Receiving, stocking, picking, and shipping are challenging and important areas requiring skills and knowledge for success. Important considerations in today's warehouse environment are postponement, outsourcing, supplier managed inventory, and consignment. Warehousing is a significant part of the supply chain and impacts supply management, planning, production, transportation, quality control, and ultimately the customer.
