Lack of Clarity for Logistics Operation
While Kompak's manufacturing operation was doing great, unfortunately, they noticed warehouse logistics processes struggled to keep up. Without having right tools to clearly see their performance it was difficult to improve their results while failing to understand the root of their issue. One thing was clear though, their loading capacity was smaller, than arriving truckers were expecting. In short, Kompak main issues to address were:
- Unclear warehouse performance
- Limited loading capacity
To provide a solution - Time Slot management system was selected. Equipping warehouse with clear schedule, adapted to Kompak operational abilities, their ramps can be used in the most efficient way, while reducing employee's workload. Since all logistics details are stored in a single platform, obtaining relative information about their performance becomes a welcome by-product.
How does the Warehouse Management System Work?
Warehouse management system allows companies to simplify their logistics processes by providing clear warehouse schedules, tailored by users preferences. On top of it all information is stored in a single place, which greatly assists in increasing communication and productivity among employees. As a result, companies can optimize their performance and avoid overcrowded facilities.
