2010 Annual Distribution and Warehousing Trends Report Released
In this year's report, members of the Distribution Center Management advisory board provide a dozen issues to watch.
(Boonton, NJ, January 7, 2010) Each year the January issue of industry newsletter Distribution Center Management, reports on what the New Year holds for distribution center and warehouse managers.
This year, members of the newsletter's advisory board provide a dozen issues to watch. For example, Susan Rider, president of Rider & Associates, says DC managers still face the challenge of doing more with less. However, she suggests that this is actually a great opportunity to become more efficient and effective.
And how do you get the most out of existing DC resources in the year ahead? By ramping up labor to handle increased volumes, managing labor costs, and satisfying customer requirements by shipping accurate orders, says Norm Saenz, assistant vice president with TranSystems.
Geoff Sisko, senior consultant with Jack Kuchta, agrees that the economy means it's time for DC managers to focus on keeping both customers and employees as satisfied as possible.
