Instructor: Matt Schreibfeder (New to UID) & Jon Schreibfeder
Level of Complexity: Intermediate
1:00 PM - 4:30 PM
Every distributor has one or more warehouses. But few realize that efficient and effective warehouse operations are a key element to success and profitability. In this workshop, we will explore how a few simple practices will help you ensure that the on-hand quantities of stocked products are consistently accurate and that you efficiently store items in order to minimize the cost of filling orders. Included will be a presentation of a cost/benefit analysis of implementing new material-handling technology.
Topics will include: efficient warehouse layouts, having the “right” people in the “right” job, best practices in organizing and processing warehouse activities, preventing errors, maintaining a safe and productive work environment, selecting appropriate storage units, determining the space required to stock each item, equipment selection, and metrics to monitor warehouse performance
