Here’s How You Can Increase Your Company’s Shipping Efficiency
Posted by Daniel Lawrence on September, 2019
Of all the hurdles you face as you run your company, one of the greatest may be getting the product from your back door to the customer’s front door in a timely manner. Any increase in efficiency in this area will directly impact your bottom line and your ability to impress and increase your customer base. Here are a few suggestions for improving efficiency:
Human interaction can go a long way in the pursuit of efficiency, as well. The employees who operate the systems that your company depends on can often feel overlooked and undervalued. Make sure to reach out to them regularly and let them know that, even in the midst of automation, technology, and quick turnarounds, they are still your most valuable asset.
Another important consideration is to demonstrate your commitment to safety by offering extensive training on machines around the facility, including automated shrink wrap machines, forklifts, and pallet jacks. Even if employees won’t use all the equipment they are being trained on, it’s still helpful for safety when they understand how it operates.
