Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 10/19/2016 -- Seegrid VGVs allow manufacturers and distributors to do more with less. Optimizing workflow processes and cutting costs out of operations is accomplished with consistent and efficient delivery of goods. With VGVs in place, employees are redeployed to value-added roles.
Cutting warehouse labor costs improves an organization's overall efficiency and increases earnings. The key is to devise ways that produce an impressive return on investment instead of simply reducing staff. Warehouses generally claim a large amount of real estate on the premises. Therefore, reducing labor costs makes a big difference in overall expenses.
Training current staff on how to work smarter by eliminating the use of forklifts has a direct bottom-line effect. Communicating across warehouse space, order-picking processes, and cost control related to damages and breakage, provides opportunities for employees to exchange tips for more efficient warehouse processes, and offer cross-functional training for warehouse, purchasing, and shipping department employees.
