PRLog - Dec. 19, 2014 - The Picking Perfection newsletter reported, "The Zen of Warehouse Management" is a different sort of warehousing guide. It is the true story of a hopeless mess from inside a distribution center where in less than nine months, inventory was doubled, the SKU count increased by 70 percent, and hourly wage rates were reduced by 22 percent.  The authors' no-nonsense approach turned this DC into a world-class facility. The real-world illustration shares how space was increased, using the root canal approach, improved handling productivity while realigning the workforce, and reduction of inbound and outbound congestion.

Picking Perfection, a weekly e-newsletter, shares methods, modes, and tools used in a variety of industries. The weekly newsletter examines best picking practices.
