Pittsburgh, PA -- (SBWIRE) -- 11/17/2016 -- Seegrid vision guided vehicles (VGVs) make transporting product from the receiving dock to storage location an easy and effective task.
Putaway is the process of moving material from the dock and transporting it to a storage, replenishment, or pick area. Best practice companies manage the putaway area by calculating resource and space requirements based on expected receipts and current backlogs. Product is also putaway the same day, because not doing so impacts space, causes congestion, increases transaction errors, and makes product more suspicious to damage.
In a busy warehouse, product putaway tends to fall behind other tasks such as picking, replenishment, shipping, and loading. Pulling away resources from putaway can impact fill rates by not having product in pick racks, bringing about congestion in staging areas that overflow into aisles. And delaying putaway may result in product damage as the product is moved continually to make way for higher priority receipts.
