Course Overview

Warehouses are means of storage or accumulation of goods, and hence, their maintenance is extremely critical to ensure effective storage of goods. What is the best way to maintain warehouses and achieve grand success? There are numerous aspects to be considered when discussing warehouse maintenance and success. One important factor is improving productivity of the warehouse. This can be made possible through effective communication, metrics to analyse and monitor performance, real-time inventory visibility, maximisation of vertical space, automated processes, robust training programs, etc. Since warehouses help in not just storage but also price stabilisation, risk bearing, financing as well as grading and packing, their operations need to be closely supervised and made as efficient and productive as possible, in order to benefit the organisation. Maximum mechanisation also helps reducing time in one or more aspects of the warehouse storage process.
