It’s not an exaggeration to say that you can’t run an efficient warehouse without efficient receiving and shipping operations.
In the first of two supply chain 24/7 podcast episodes entitled "It All Starts at the Dock" David Dziwis, Director of Health Care Services at St. Onge Company, explains why efficient docks set the stage for efficient operations and how you can identify the hallmarks of good and not-so-good warehouse management dock operations.
If it takes too long to unload or load a truck you’re going to get fined by your trucking partners; inventory stuck on the receiving dock is in the facility, but not available to promise; and it doesn’t matter how fast you can fill an order if you can’t load your trucks.
Efficient dock management sets the stage for efficient operations and identifies the hallmarks of good and not-so-good warehouse management dock operations.
This is a must-listen podcast episode for anyone designing a new facility or looking to improve their dock operations.
