Cost of Excess Worker Motion Kills Warehouse and Distribution Center Profit Margins


PRLog[1] - Dec. 5, 2014 - The Picking Perfection newsletter reported how easy it is to underestimate how much excess worker motion, product transportation, and touches can cost an organization. Bringing mobile power technology into the receiving, picking, shipping, and/or inventory management process eliminates costly footsteps and creates rapid and significant changes in volumes, accuracy, and efficiency. Mobile power can help obtain measurable productivity gains and significant cost savings without months of planning and implementation. One of the key takeaways from ProMAT 2015 will be learning how mobile power technology can significantly increase speed and throughput while reducing labor costs in receiving, picking, shipping, and inventory management processes. Attendees will see real-case examples (with compelling quantitative data) where mobile power has been effectively implemented in the warehouse, and review justification tools to make a case and get buy-in from IT and management.
