The apparel industry is constantly in motion, which means warehousing and logistics is constantly trying to keep up. E-commerce sales are growing at 10-15% annually, which really stretches your fulfillment, distribution, and cost.
We help companies lower operational costs while improving productivity processes. Our main focus centers around effective design and a warehouse management system to create an efficient workflow.
We've helped countless apparel companies configure their operations to fit their specific needs, with inventory ranging from bagged, to flat, or hanging configurations. Utilizing bin storage, we can easily separate SKUs and also combine them to optimize the space you currently have.
This question is our most common deliverable. Understanding your space requirements comes down to understanding your data and inventory cycles to validate what you really need. Through warehouse consulting and data analysis, you can receive insightful information to calculate all of your warehouse needs.
What layout is best for my operation?
The consulting process usually delivers a couple alternative layouts for consideration. These range from fully conventional to a hybrid automation solution. We help determine where automation bring you the greatest return, and where conventional may give you the flexibility you need for future growth.
How can I create a better inventory flow in my warehouse?
Inefficiencies are typically found between receiving and shipping inventory. We help document the inventory needs at each process in the business. This creates storage buffers to support all of your labeling, packaging, and shipping requirements. We create a cross-dock flow of inventory, bringing all of your processes into one cohesive flow.
What benefit will proper warehouse consulting provide?
Another set of eyes with extensive experience in the field of material handling is extremely helpful. We believe in a collaborative effort. No one knows the business better than you do. Which is why we combine your experience with our experts to provide the highest potential and greatest return on your investment.
