There is a lot of buzz around “slotting”… so let’s take a look at a few of the main reasons you would need a slotting assessment from an experienced warehouse expert:

Successfully slotting your warehouse is arguably the fastest way to reduce your overhead.

In today’s fast-moving marketplace, the success of your business can hinge on whether or not your warehouse operation is efficient enough to meet your customers’ needs. If your warehouse isn’t properly slotted, you could be literally giving money away. The fastest way to increase efficiency and reduce your costs is to get your warehouse slotted in the most effective way possible, and the only way to know how to do that is to have an expert show you how.

Your business changes rapidly. Your slotting should too.

Slotting isn’t a one-and-done thing. Once your warehouse is properly slotted for your business demands, chances are your customers’ demands will change. You need to be able to be flexible and fluid. We can help.

You don’t know what you don’t know.

It’s true what they say – sometimes the hardest things to see are right in front of you.  You’re living with the way your warehouse operates on a daily basis and sometimes it takes a fresh perspective and a new set of eyes to see what is right there. It’s valuable just to have someone with the right expertise and experience take a fresh look at how you do things.
