Every warehouse needs to ensure that they run efficiently. There are certain ways to ensure this, beyond buying the right racks from Tier-Rack. Here's our list of five ways to ensure that your warehouse runs efficiently and safely.
1. Processes Lead to Accountability
Create a series of processes in your warehouse that will make sure that your employees are accountable for inventory and safety. Make them part of the solution, rather than part of the problem. Employees that are invested in the safety and viability of the warehouse will make it run more smoothly.
2. When You Make Changes, Let Everyone Know
Post new warehouse policies. Have meetings. Build a rapport with the employees in the warehouse to make sure that everyone is on the same page. All of these will make sure that your employees feel that they have been informed and know what to do.
3. Get Managers and Decision-Makers On the Floor
Senior leadership and managers make decisions all of the time about how the warehouse operates. Shouldn't they have a first-hand knowledge of the operation? Let them walk the floor. Give them an opportunity to see the procedures in action. Get hands-on occasionally. This helps in two ways. It gives decision makers much needed intelligence on the operation at ground level, and it shows the employees in the warehouse that their bosses do care about what happens in the warehouse.
4. Have the Right Configuration
Using the right warehouse configuration for your product and space is crucial. The key to this is flexibility.
