Modernization for Your Outdoor Storage Visibility and Tracking

Posted by Advanced Mobile Group on Jul 26, 2018 8:30:00 AM

While techniques to maintain and track inventory under a roof are well-established and somewhat ubiquitous, outdoor storage still lags in performance as many businesses ignore some of the basic rules that they followed when setting up their warehouse. While the warehouse space might be packed with advanced scanning and conveyor equipment, high bay racks served by aisle pickers and perhaps even robots, outdoor areas tend to suffer from lack of attention to the same level of precision and order that is valued in the warehouse.

Facility-wide changes aren’t Easy and not always optimal.   
When your DC needs an upgrade, where do you start?

Something we see with every facility we visit is the desire by managers to continually look for new ways to improve on their KPIs and find innovative ways to do that. While every manager would love to have the resources to rebuild their warehouse facility, its processes, and layout from the ground up, this is possible only in the rare case that the business is growing so fast it can afford to build out a separate new facility to replace the older one when it is ready (or moving to an entirely new location).
