Optimizing Your Warehouse With a Voice System Optimizing Your Warehouse With a Voice System

Companies today face many challenges. Within the supply chain, this applies in particular to a distribution center (DC), where supply and demand meet. Management expects limited or reduced costs, while the boom in e-commerce demands the picking of ever greater quantities and better customer service. New technologies designed to meet these expectations and increase worker efficiency are being put to the test.

With this white paper you'll learn how to:

  • Identify key business challenges in your DC
  • Find the right solution to face your specific challenges
  • Tackle challenges with voice-enabled workflows

Logistics 2030 – Navigating a Disruptive Decade (Year 1 Report) Logistics 2030 – Navigating a Disruptive Decade (Year 1 Report)

To say that 2018 was a transformative year for transportation would be an understatement at best. Shippers and carriers alike were scrambling to secure capacity ... and secure that capacity at reasonable rates. This volatility coupled with ongoing changes to our transportation networks prompted us to launch the Logistics 2030 (L-2030) study.

The year 2030 is not a long way off. Over the next twelve years, supply chain professionals will encounter many challenges and rapid change. It is important to assess the strategies, requirements, and tools that will shape supply chains and drive success over the next decade.

A team of experts from Auburn University's Center for Supply Chain Innovation, the Council of Supply Chain Management Professionals (CSCMP), the National Shippers Strategic Transportation Council (NASSTRAC), and AGiLE Business Media (publisher of DC Velocity & CSCMP's Supply Chain Quarterly), has undertaken a multi-year study of these future issues. Over the next few years, the L-2030 study will address key elements of the emerging supply chain.

Our first choice for study was transportation management, specifically, as the function exists within the shipper community. We collected expert insights on future transportation issues via a survey, focus groups, and individual interviews. The resulting information is contained in this report.

Eliminate waste and cut costs with a LEAN supply chain Eliminate waste and cut costs with a LEAN supply chain

Experts also identify the seven types of waste that can weaken a supply chain. In a LEAN culture, if something doesn't add value, it is eliminated. Rather than deploying ambitious programs with sweeping reforms, a LEAN operation makes incremental improvements daily.

Calculating the True Cost of a Mispick Calculating the True Cost of a Mispick

Picking involves much more than grabbing an item off a static storage rack or shelf. In the typical manual distribution center, picking means an operator receives a paper list of instructions about what to pick and where, travels to the correct storage location, locates the correct item, refers to the paper pick list to determine the number of items required from that pick face, picks the items, confirms the pick by marking the paper, then delivers the items for packing.

All of those steps are fraught with potential error. While most operations understand mistakes will happen, very few have taken the time to calculate the true cost of those mispicks, and how they impact the bottom line. This white paper outlines a calculation for estimating the true cost of mispicks in order fulfillment to an operation. It also presents technology solutions to improve pick accuracy, and shares a calculation for determining the savings they can deliver.
