Are you considering bringing your DC/Warehouse into the “mainstream? Will you be able to handle any projected increases in sales with the same workforce or just end up throwing more bodies at it? How do you go about mitigating the “constraints” you face?

It could be a wise investment if it’s financially measurable, and has a verifiable and tangible return in terms of reducing transaction costs – now – while attaining “future cost avoidance” opportunities as you continue to grow.

This presentation will identify the common “wastes” of major warehouse and distribution center activities and the lean thinking methods and technologies available that debunk what has been, for too long, current thinking within the context of small, medium and large size wholesale distributors.
