6 Tips for Maximizing Efficiency and Productivity of Warehouse Operations

As a warehouse manager, you would understand that handling warehouse operations are a massive task. One small mistake may affect the efficiency and productivity of the warehouse. You must continually implement measures to optimize various warehouse processes and improve the overall effectiveness of the operations involved. Apart from minimizing downtime and increasing productivity, it is essential to improve your supply chain. Let us look at a few tips that help in achieving the same.

Robot Trucks or Autonomous Vehicles Will Revolutionize the Supply Chain

Most supply chain professionals do not completely understand the disruption and upgrades that autonomous vehicles, specifically what I call robot trucks, will create. Most cannot get past the pitfalls and possible barriers to robot trucks. I define robot trucks with a much broader perspective. I include trucks of all sizes and even internal plant material handling equipment like fork-lifts and automatic guided vehicles (AVGs). The biggest leap is that robot trucks will learn! Many doubters just cannot get past this. Although not complete artificial intelligence (AI), robot trucks will adapt on their own, to conditions and circumstances, and build an open memory of what to do.

Transform Your Supply Chain For Omnichannel

The world is in the early stages of a global supply chain revolution. The Amazon Effect. The Internet of Things. Platform Businesses. The new supply chain will grow beyond omnichannel. It will cross into other industries and markets and will incorporate supply chains of products, information, and finance. All the elements of the New Supply Chain tie together. They are not separate steps. They are not to be selectively chosen or excluded. These are inter-related. The New Supply Chain brings performance excellence.

The 4 Supply Chain Metrics

Metrics are a way to measure performance; and, in turn, communicate that information to key executives in the company.  Their value is how supply chain management is supporting the direction and strategy of the business.  It is important that they present a strategic and tactical understanding of what is happening and how well it is happening. KPIs (key performance indicators) must be measurable.  As a result, numerous metrics are about the logistics components.  Some of these are good.  However, they do not present a view of the total supply chain.  Plus, many have little or no usefulness for the C-suite.   Assessing logistics parts is a node-link approach and does not recognize the supply chain process.

Data Integration Made Sexy

Time and again, software buyers make purchasing decisions based on features offered, but often overlook how data will be integrated only to find out that it won’t be easy. However, there is a way to avoid this headache. Learn why modern enterprises are making data integration a priority instead of an afterthought.

The Impact of Maintenance Operations On Supply Chain Management

We all know how delays in any part of the supply chain can cause significant problems and incur additional delays among the rest of the supply chain. One thing that is often overlooked but plays a major role in keeping the supply chain from crumbling down is maintenance management. In one way or another, you can connect maintenance activities with every stop in your supply chain. Be it transportation, production, or storage, a failure of one maintenance team can be felt throughout the supply chain. In that light, let's explore this idea into more detail.

Returns – A Threat to the Bottom Line or an Opportunity to Cut Costs?

The notion of reverse logistics isn’t new, of course. The function has been around since the Phoenicians began shipping amphorae of wine to Rome in 1,500 BC. Processes have moved on since then but reverse logistics is the conundrum that every company will face at one time or another and how it deals with this issue will determine whether it is an opportunity or threat to the business.
