In articles past, we’ve talked about the difference between supply chain and logistics services. In this article, we’re going to dive deeper into exactly what the warehousing portion of supply chain logistics looks like.

Supply Chain Logistics

If the supply chain encompasses the entire life cycle of a product from conception to delivery to the end-user, the logistics component of the supply chain would include the warehousing and transportation of the product(s).

Warehouse Logistics

Warehouse logistics, as a spoke in the supply chain, deals with the movement and management of goods to, from, and within the warehouse. While it may seem simple on the surface, it can be quite complex, especially when dealing with tens of thousands of square feet of warehousing space with rows upon rows of shelving and palleted goods. Warehouse managers must not only manage the flow of inventory but must also ensure proper management of the human and mechanical resources required to handle that inventory.

Mismanagement of warehouse resources (space, people, inventory) can create problems that, for the customer utilizing that warehouse, can add up quickly.

Importance of a Warehouse Management System

As the demand for increased efficiency in warehouses grows, so does the need for better systems and processes. A warehouse management system (WMS) does more than simply track inventory. When properly implemented, a WMS can allow warehouse managers to:

  • Manage and maximize physical space.
  • Automatically notify sales or clients directly when stock needs replenishment.
  • Manage inventory in real-time.
  • Increase accuracy on order fulfillment.
  • Better align inventory and shipping.
