With more and more shoppers feeling the propensity to spend their dollars online rather than in-store, businesses are left attempting to keep up with fulfillment expectations. Unfortunately, few businesses are able to find adequate warehouse space and effective distribution facilities for their fluctuating demand. It’s not the easiest thing to forecast exactly how many units will sell for any given business, meaning it can be hard to know exactly how prepared a business should be on the fulfillment end of their operations. Irregular demand can lead to insufficient space, which can lead to the inability to maintain timeframes, which in turn leads to additional costs and inaccurate inventory information. This chain of outcomes, while unfortunate, is avoidable. To be successful in our multichannel, e-commerce reality, many companies are finding it necessary to revamp their operations and logistics, or even to shift their business model. One such renovation is in the form of redesigning working and storage space. Utilizing methodological solutions can lead to better organization, increased visibility of available stock and improved inventory accuracy. For more information on the ways in which businesses are renovating these storage and warehousing spaces, please see the infographic accompanying this post.
