Case Study: How to Maximize Warehouse Productivity through Visibility

The Challenge:
The floor-stacked operations of [Company A]’s 500,000+ sq. ft warehouses resulted in their operations team having limited visibility into their daily operations.

Reliable headcount planning was not possible due to the considerable variance of workers’ productivity depending on their skill sets, the difficulty of transactions, and a lack of data to control the variance. Similarly, their worker incentive program was not data-driven due to inaccurateinformation.

While the multilocation picking processes are the most time-consuming, [Company A]’s TMS (transportation management system) doesn’t provide a reliable routing strategy. As a result, each driver improvises the priority and the order of their picking transactions. On average, that resulted in a 35% inefficiency compared to the optimal routing scenario.
