Dealing with Shipping Woes

With so many moving parts involved in shipping, bumps in the road are unavoidable. Many things can ground your warehouse to a halt, which can include:

  • Human errors

  • Safety hazards

  • Warehouse bottlenecks

  • Peak ordering/shortages

Manual, semi-, and fully automated facilities will face challenges like these. When it comes to shipping, having solutions for these issues is key to keeping products flowing out your docks. If your shipping area layout is overflowing with clutter, you create dangerous conditions that can slow you down and hurt your employees. There are many ways you can safeguard your areas dedicated to shipping and receiving. Examples include scheduling clean-up into shifts for your personnel.
