Warehouse

 

Our warehouse management system (WMS) tracks inward and outward movements through a range of warehouse control reports. Our warehouse is fully zoned so we are able to pinpoint where goods are at all times.

Receipt of goods in our warehouse

  1. Upon arrival of the goods, a visual inspection of the cartons is carried out to ensure that no damage has occurred during or prior to dispatch of the goods.
  2. If any damage is found that may have damaged the goods, a photograph is taken as soon as possible. This evidence is emailed to the customer with instructions as to whether or not the goods are to be accepted.
  3. Carton quantities are checked against delivery documents and labelled internal quantities are checked against delivery instructions.
  4. Each item is assigned its own code and description for stock reporting and tracking purposes.
  5. Goods are then placed on storage racks and location and quantity information is sent for entry into a computer to determine stock location and quantity.

Warehousing and stock management

 

Once goods are received, they are always treated as FIFO (First in First Out), ensuring that the freshest goods are always held in stock. A lot number is also used where appropriate.

As stock is removed for bespoke deliveries, the computer adjusts the remaining stock levels. Once the goods are placed on the warehouse racks or shelves, another visual check is carried out. If goods are found to be damaged during packing, transport or pre-shipment inspection, the damaged quantity is recorded in the computer and stock levels are adjusted.

Stock reports - weekly or monthly

 

Inventory reports can be created at any time, at the customer's request. Some customers send them weekly and others monthly. They can be sent at any time at the customer's request.

There are many benefits associated with stock picking and inventory level reporting, including:

  • Immediate and accurate reporting of stock levels

  • Eliminates waste by reducing over-ordering.

  • Restrictions may be placed on certain stock items, such as expensive premium items.

  • "Just in time" ordering of materials
