Managing a warehouse has always been challenging, and trends in logistics management continue to make it harder every day especially in the current uncertain times where digital disruption is evident.. Adopting new normal warehouse management practices and solutions helps keep products flowing efficiently through the system, which is a critical factor in serving customers and securing increasing operating margins through improved warehouse productivity.
Inaccurate inventory counts and poor inventory control is the most common issue facing warehouse managers. Over the period, these errors can accumulate, leaving puzzling gaps in the inventory. Inventory location problems generally develop over time, as new products are added to the inventory and tracking of goods becomes difficult. Inability to integrate your current warehouse management system with logistic and supply chain partners leads to manual tasks results in inaccuracies. Suboptimal picking happens most often due to process inefficiencies in receiving or put-away tasks. Inappropriate warehouse billing systems fail to incorporate demurrage charges and track customer payments.

This allows the warehouse staff to know where the items will be stored and help in easy pick and packing. A Smart warehouse solution with Bluetooth tags attached to crates and pallets can improve inventory movement efficiency.
