Because warehouses are a buffer for inbound shipments from suppliers and outbound orders to customers, the nature of warehousing often changes from storage to transaction. In addition, overseas sourcing increases the need for warehousing--increasing its importance in the supply chain.
One key to effective warehouse design is insight into picking or storage activities. A large warehouse space can meet storage needs but complicate picking processes. You need to find a balance for the design of your warehouse. From layout to function, Customer Solutions can help you design or redesign your distribution center so it works in the most efficient way as possible to suit your individual needs.
