If I have to make my warehouse run on a low cost and high productivity basis what are the areas that I need to focus or priorities.
From Singapore, Singapore
Consider reduction of permanent labour and introduce Contract labours except the critical areas where you feel more experience / skill
Provide more automation on lifting / stacking/ sorting/ movement of material from inward to outward.
More important is to take care of your employees and the workplace to be made dust free / heat free/ and enjoyable (provide a very light soothing music system inside the work spot)
Last but very important is if you can provide snacks and food during the working hours.

Dear member,
Your query is too short-worded and vague too. You could have given the following information:
a) What kind of material is stored in the warehouse? What type of equipment is used in the warehouse?
b) From where the material comes to the warehouse (inbound shipments)
c) Where the material goes from the warehouse (outbound shipments)
d) What is the average turnaround time per PO?
e) What is the Order Picking Accuracy per PO?
f) Have you measured scientifically Inventory Turnover Ratio (ITR) of your warehouse?
I have raised the above questions because I conduct the training programme on Effective Warehouse Management. We can discuss about your further requirement. You may click here to contact me.
