Efficiency in a warehouse environment is all about maximising productivity while saving time and money. Whether you have a multi-channel warehouse or a smaller venture, one of the most expensive activities for any warehousing operation is the coming and going of product. Improving the efficiency of the goods-in process can help to reduce overall costs.
Weight data plays a valuable role in achieving goods-in efficiency, providing a reliable and efficient means of verifying that goods received are accurately declared. Selecting the right solution can provide your business with an accurate way to keep track of incoming inventory.
By simplifying process and reducing the number of times incoming goods are ‘touched’ by staff, or cross the warehouse floor, operations can be made more efficient.
Robust and reliable scales convert forklift and pallet trucks into mobile weighing systems which have the ability to capture weight and storage data as part of the goods inwards transfer process. This timesaving solution cuts out unnecessary steps and provides real--time data, which can be transmitted to back office or warehouse management systems for billing and inventory management.
As well as tracking inventory for larger loads or pallets, high accuracy counting scales can verify quantities of goods received.
One of the best ways to measure productivity in the warehousing environment is to measure process improvement. By gathering and analysing real-time weight data, warehouse managers can identify potential areas for improvement.
