What You Will Learn

With School Health’s success and growth, the company committed to build a new, larger facility in suburban Chicago. While we are adept at warehouse operations and order fulfillment, we’d never designed a warehouse from scratch before. How should we slot products given seasonal spikes for maximum efficiency and throughput? How should we number and label storage locations for optimal performance?

Key Takeaways

The project’s goals included minimizing the time and distance required to replenish key products; reducing workers’ bend-and-reach requirements more efficiently organizing inventory for greater throughput.
Due to the seasonal velocity they needed flexibility in how rack slots were labeled. Learn what solution was implemented at School Health.
Learn how to develop the ideal warehouse location address methodology and take into account future growth.
