Warehouse Management Systems Overview
Whether business is booming and you’re experiencing tremendous growth or simply adjusting to globalization and the unpredictable forces of market volatility, it’s necessary to review and re-evaluate your Inventory operations every once in awhile. You can learn an awful lot about what’s in store for your business by taking stock of your Warehouse Management Systems. Optimizing WMS is a tactical move for forward thinkers.
The Pain Point
Because companies are often vulnerable to outside forces, especially at this stage in the game (i.e., 3rd party reliance, industry fragmentation from sourcing to fulfillment, globalization, intermodal transportation variables) it can be difficult to manage how everything unfolds.
How much inventory capacity do you currently have? How much will you need? Are you utilizing the space that you currently have effectively? How close is your inventory to the retail space? Who’s managing the Warehouse? For a lot of companies experiencing growing pains, it’s the litany of unanswered questions surrounding their daily operations that keep them up at night. Developing a tactical Distribution Center Strategy with an efficient WMS is vital and will positively impacts transportation costs to boot. Time to get your house in order.

How WMS fit into your Supply Chain Loop
Optimizing your warehouse operations to keep up with changes in the marketplace [whether it concerns expansion or simply determining better use of the space you already have] is the low hanging fruit of supply chain management.
Better choreograph distribution center moves, leverage those moves to serve the customer base, conduct data analysis of shipping history volumes, transportation structure, and labor rate assessment with applied demographics and local/state government incentives, as well as apply business intelligence for contracts, facility exit costs, and supplier locations. That's good for the whole "Loop".
