Manufacturers and distributors are under increased pressure to make sure that orders are fulfilled quickly, accurately, and affordably. That means having efficient, organized, and low-cost warehousing solutions that keep customers satisfied.
Warehousing helps your business stay ahead of the competition with logistics solutions that make sure goods get delivered on time, securely, and safely. Here are 6 benefits of warehousing solutions that will help your company stay ahead.
With a partner that specializes in warehousing, you can ensure that goods are stored safely before a sale or distribution. Warehouse facilities are designed and equipped to protect against fire, water, theft, or climate damage. They’re also designed to reduce the risk of accidents, breakage, quality deterioration, or spoilage.
2. Optimized Supply Chain
A high-performing warehouse solution is an essential part of an optimal supply chain. With great uncertainties now related to global supply chains, your warehouse solution can streamline processes at every stage, from inbound receiving to outbound deliveries.
Warehouse solutions can also ensure accuracy in shipping and reduce unnecessary and unproductive steps, saving time and reducing inventory carrying costs. Give your customers confidence in your ability to deliver what’s promised when it’s needed with a comprehensive warehouse solution.
3. Sophisticated Handling
You need a warehouse partner that can keep your goods moving in the right direction. You want a warehouse solution that can expedite handling, including multiple loading docks, lot and batch controls, and equipment such as forklifts and cranes that can move goods carefully and efficiently. Your warehouse partner needs to be able to handle multiple SKUs and complex goods, including hazardous goods.
4. Location with Tax Advantages
Your warehouse solution should be located with easy access to ports, highways, and major thoroughfares. New Hampshire, for example, offers easy access to East Coast and Canadian hubs, airports, and ports in state and throughout New England and New York. The state also offers no sales tax, meaning you can offer competitive prices to customers.
5. Better Customer Service
Consider all the steps necessary to get goods in and out of a warehouse. From the moment items arrive at a receiving dock, your warehouse solution needs to manage the picking, packing, labeling, tracking, and delivery of your valuable goods. When those systems are aligned, streamlined, and proven successful, you’ll be able to improve customer order cycle times and customer notifications, leading to better customer relations.
6. Technology Integration
Your warehouse management solution should integrate seamlessly with your existing technologies, allowing for connections with your ERP solution and real-time visibility, data exporting, RF barcode scanning, pallet monitoring and receiving, and KPI reports.
