Effective Warehouse Operation & Management
Course Description
The role of the warehouse has changed from simple stock-keeping to one that is featured prominently as an important part of the supply chain strategy. It has become more challenging to manage a warehouse given the demands for shorter lead time to operating at the lowest possible cost. Managing a world-class warehouse is now recognized as a potentially major source of competitive advantage as opposed to just another source of cost before product reaches the customer. To achieve this competitive advantage, it is important to choose the right type of operation, processes and equipment, and then understand and continuously improve performance through appropriate measures and controls. This course investigates warehouse functions, processes, organization and operations. We review an analysis of warehouse location, operation, management, controls, procedures, finance, security, cargo/materials handling, and productivity.
The Training Course Will Highlight ?

The Warehouse forms a critical link in a company’s supply chain. It serves as a marshaling point for incoming materials and a distribution point for delivering these materials to customers.
