Placing the Cargo Correctly
Before a cargo is accepted into the Warehouse, the Sales, Operations and Warehouse Team should be made aware of the exact Storage Requirement. Wherever possible, pictures should be provided so that an appropriate storage area can be allocated in advance to receipt.
Depending on the type of cargo (Rackable, Stackable, Outdoor) it is wise to place the right goods in right places. Wasting indoor storage space by placing heavy project cargos or placing sensitive cargos outdoor and ending up with absolute mess are never prudent decisions.
Accurate Stock Management
Cargo management is a strategic policy. There should be a clear procedure in-place when the product enters the facility. The quantity should be tallied as per the Documents Received and then allocated to the pre-decided location for storage.It is also wise to take pictures of the inbound goods to ensure that there are no visual damages and share with the customer. At the time of outbound, the products should be easy to access and prepare for dispatch. We at GWL have trained our teams to cater to the varying nature of products. Good warehouse organization helps us utilize the space properly.
