In modern warehouse management, the need to support omni-channel commerce (B2B/B2C) from a single site cannot be overstated. Warehouses today face greater challenges than ever before as they aim to satisfy a constantly increasing demand for speed, availability, and low costs to achieve customer satisfaction.

Modern Challenges to Warehouse Management   

According to Infor research, some of the greatest challenges faced in warehouse management include:

  • Rising order volume, falling order size, and increasing touches per order
  • High logistics and fulfilment costs
  • 3PL/LSPs ability to track/invoice inventory at the customer level
  • Pressure to increase customer service levels, reflected in increased customer expectations such as decreased delivery windows, or the cost of non-compliance
  • Difficulty tracking inventory attributes such as serial numbers, lots, and so forth
  • Poor human resource utilisation and management
  • Constrained warehouse space or labour constraints/costs
  • Increased use of integrated warehouse automation
  • Order accuracy issues reflected in returns and customer complaints
  • Late deliveries, increased reliance on expediting, and stock-outs
