ონლაინ შესყიდვების პროცენტი ექსპონენტურად გაიზარდა ბოლო რამდენიმე წლის განმავლობაში: ევროპაში 320 მილიონზე მეტმა ადამიანმა განახორციელა მინიმუმ ერთი შესყიდვა ელექტრონული კომერციის საიტზე გასულ წელს და თითქმის 80% აკეთებს მინიმუმ ერთ შესყიდვას თვეში.

ეს აქცევს ელექტრონულ კომერციას დიდ შესაძლებლობას ყველა ბიზნესისთვის, რაც მათ საშუალებას აძლევს შეამცირონ მანძილი საბოლოო კლიენტებსა და პროდუქტებს შორის, რაც მომხმარებლებს საშუალებას აძლევს შეიძინონ საკუთარი სახლიდან, მაუსის მარტივი დაწკაპუნებით, კომპიუტერის ან სმარტფონის გამოყენებით.

თუმცა, ბიზნესისთვის ეს აჩენს მთავარ კითხვას: როგორ მართონ ელექტრონული კომერციის ლოჯისტიკა სწრაფად და ეფექტურად?

პირველი ნაბიჯი უდავოდ არის ყველა „რუტინული“ პრობლემის გათვალისწინება, რომელიც შეიძლება უარყოფითად იმოქმედოს ელექტრონული კომერციის ოპერაციებზე, როგორიცაა მომწოდებლების მიერ მიწოდება ან ზედმეტად მოცულობითი შეფუთვა. მაშინ საწყობის მართვის მთელი საკითხი უნდა განიხილებოდეს, საჭიროების შემთხვევაში, ელექტრონული კომერციისა და ზოგადი ლოგისტიკის ექსპერტების დახმარებით.

ლოგისტიკის ახალი მიდგომა

ელექტრონული კომერცია: ლოჯისტიკის ახალი მიდგომა

შენახვიდან ტვირთის გადაზიდვამდე, შებრუნებულ ლოჯისტიკამდე და დაბრუნების მენეჯმენტამდე, შეფუთვიდან მიწოდებამდე: ლოჯისტიკა, როგორც ჩვენ ყოველთვის ვიცოდით, ის უნდა გადაიზარდოს ელექტრონული კომერციის ლოჯისტიკაში.

მთავარი მიზანია მომხმარებელთა კმაყოფილება, იმის გათვალისწინებით, რომ მომხმარებლები ელიან საქონლის დროულად მიღებას, ხელუხლებლად და, უპირველეს ყოვლისა, დამატებითი ხარჯების გარეშე. ამ ყველაფრის გასაკეთებლად აუცილებელია მკაფიოდ განსაზღვრული სტრატეგიების გამოყენება და საწყობის ლოგისტიკური მართვის მთელი მოდელის გადახედვა.

ელექტრონული კომერციის არჩევის ოპერაციების დაჩქარება: ავტომატური საწყობებით ბევრად უფრო ადვილია

კრეფის ოპერაციების დაჩქარების ერთ-ერთი საწყისი ნაბიჯი შეიძლება იყოს ახალი გადაწყვეტის განხილვა, როგორც თაროების საწყობების შემცვლელი: ერთ-ერთი საუკეთესო ვარიანტი ნამდვილად არის ავტომატური. ვერტიკალური საწყობი.

ტრადიციული კონცეფციისგან განსხვავებით, რომლის დროსაც ოპერატორი მოძრაობს საწყობის შიგნით, ეძებს მისთვის საჭირო ნივთებს, ავტომატური ვერტიკალური საწყობის ტექნოლოგიით საქონელი მიეწოდება ოპერატორს, რომელიც არ მოძრაობს სამუშაო ადგილიდან. ეს ყველაფერი იძლევა საქონლის მოწესრიგებულ, უსაფრთხო ორგანიზებას, მაგრამ უპირველეს ყოვლისა საშუალებას იძლევა უფრო სწრაფი კრეფის ოპერაციები, ელექტრონული კომერციისთვის და ზოგადად საწყობებში.

ელექტრონული კომერციის ლოჯისტიკა: საწყობის მართვა უფრო სწრაფი საპირისპირო ლოჯისტიკისთვის

ელექტრონული კომერციის დანერგვა ბიზნესში არის ეტაპობრივი პროცესი, რომელიც შეიძლება განხორციელდეს სხვადასხვა გზით, ორგანიზაციის სიდიდის მიხედვით. თუმცა, ერთი ფაქტორი გასათვალისწინებელია ჯერ კიდევ პორტალის გახსნამდე: როგორ შეიძლება დაჩქარდეს საწყობის შიგნით შებრუნებული ლოჯისტიკა, რაც ნიშნავს უბრალოდ დაბრუნებას?

საპირისპირო ლოგისტიკა არის მთავარი იარაღი ბაზრის წილების მოსაპოვებლად ბრძოლაში: ფაქტობრივად, ორი წლის განმავლობაში მომხმარებლები 100%-ით ამცირებენ შესყიდვებს საქონლის დაბრუნების საფასურით, მაგრამ გაზრდის მათ 457%-მდე. საიტები უფასო დაბრუნებით.

ასე რომ, პროდუქციის დაბრუნების ეფექტური მართვა აუცილებელია მომხმარებლის სრული კმაყოფილების უზრუნველსაყოფად. დადგენილია, რომ ონლაინ შესყიდვების დაახლოებით 10% უბრუნდება გამყიდველს, თუმცა ისეთ სექტორებში, როგორიცაა მოდა, პროცენტები შეიძლება იყოს 20%-ზე მეტი.

ეს გულისხმობს მთლიანი ლოგისტიკური ოპერაციების რეორგანიზაციის აუცილებლობას, რაც შეიძლება მეტად დააჩქაროს საპირისპირო ლოგისტიკა, რათა მინიმუმამდე დაიყვანოს დაკავშირებული ხარჯები.

Safety in the warehouse is a fundamental element for effective workplace management and is synonymous with quality of production and of your workplace environment. A safe warehouse means fewer accidents, fewer problems, fewer delays during operations and fewer incidents.

In fact, although these last factors primarily have negative repercussions for your staff, they can also affect the financial health of your business. Frequent accidents mean a reduction in efficiency, replacement of staff, possible extra recruitment, insurance policies and government inspections.

The starting point for eliminating all critical factors which conspire to make a warehouse less safe, and therefore less efficient, is to identify what the actual problems are. The most common “symptoms” which indicate problems with warehouse management in terms of safety are generally as follows:

  • Damaged goods
  • Disorganised warehouse
  • Complaints by operators about onerous tasks or heavy loads
  • Frequent accidents
  • If you become aware that one of the above problems is occurring constantly, then the time has come to think about the safety of your warehouse.
  • When we talk about safety, it’s important to distinguish between the two different types:
  1. Safety of personnel working in the warehouse: everything that relates to the people working in the warehouse and the various activities they perform when moving goods around, but also the weight limits imposed by manual handling regulations, obstacles and distances between objects depending on whether handling is being carried out manually or using mechanical vehicles.
  2. Security of goods: everything that relates to the goods being stored. Everything in the warehouse has a value, so theft and damage will negatively impact the business’ bottom line. For this reason, it’s important to pay attention to how goods are being stored in order to avoid this type of issue.
    Let’s take a look in more detail.

Protecting operators

Looking after the people who work in the warehouse is an absolutely fundamental issue. In this case, the concept of safety can be split into two methods: adoption of accident prevention measures or the ability to intervene effectively when an accident occurs. We all know that prevention is better than cure, and it’s always better to pay attention to and invest money in the former. If operational risks are high or if you are getting complaints from your staff relating to safety then you need to take another look at how you are managing your warehouse.

Warehouse safety

How? First of all, you must monitor completely all operations. Don’t leave any out just because they may not be performed very often. They may still pose a significant danger for anyone who performs them and they must obviously be redesigned or eliminated.

Now analyse each individual activity and everything that relates to it. This is so you can understand if the working environment is safe enough for the people working there. Are the goods located on traditional shelving units and therefore are people often required to use stairs or carry heavy loads by hand? How safe is the equipment being used? Is the space between shelving units wide enough to allow people climbing stairs to retrieve the goods safely? What is the likelihood that a load could be dropped by an operator? Are you complying with legal limits? These questions will help you to understand any weak points in your warehouse which can act as the starting point for implementing new safety measures.

If, for example, loads are mainly being moved manually, the risk of incidents or accidents is increased compared to movements made using automatic systems or mechanical equipment. As manual handling requires operators to push, lift or drag even very heavy loads, this carries a much higher risk of objects being overturned and puts the health of operators in jeopardy.

The size of loads also has an influence on the quality of work in the warehouse. If the goods to be moved are large and cumbersome, operators are required to make movements or twisting motions which are dangerous to their safety. For this reason, and in the interests of improving safety in your warehouse, you must design your packaging correctly so that it reduces the effort required by your staff to a minimum, or else you need to rethink how their work is organised.

Keep the warehouse clean and tidy

One simple but fundamental rule which will help you maintain a higher level of safety for your operators is really just about keeping the place clean. Especially where oily substances are used inside the warehouse or where the floor of your working area often gets wet, the risk of accidents occurring is rather high.

It’s a good rule in these cases to warn others of the “danger” as soon as possible and proceed as quickly as possible to remove the spillage. Clean the floor to avoid falls which may be dangerous for operators and at the same time create an obstacle for vehicles used inside the warehouse.

Pay attention particularly to transit areas: avoid any type of obstacle which might cause an accident such as packaging, detritus and stationary vehicles. Operators can get distracted, become tired or simply can’t physically see the danger. However, it’s important that every person working inside the warehouse remains alert to these issues to encourage a workplace which is safer for everybody. Being in a hurry to complete the day’s deliveries can sometimes cause omissions or distractions which can have undesirable consequences in terms of safety.

Organise safety courses for all operators and update staff constantly about regulations

Always give a high degree of importance to training new staff before they start work. This goes especially for those workers who use transport and handling equipment.

Make use of the advice of safety experts so you know what types of courses your operators should be sent on and also find out if your warehouse is effectively compliant and safe.

Pay particular attention where new people are employed and/or when new machinery is being adopted. In both cases, before starting production, you must ensure that you have properly explained all safety regulations that relate to your warehouse to your new employees and, in the latter case, ensure that all methods for using the new machines are clear to everyone.

If any equipment requires specific certification for its use, you must make sure that all those persons who will be using the equipment are in possession of this certification and that it is still valid.

Security of goods

Have you ever found goods have been damaged in the warehouse? Or have you noticed that some products have magically disappeared?

These are definitely symptoms of a failure in the way the warehouse’s security is managed. It could be that your employees are not very careful when moving goods about, that the goods arrive already damaged but nobody says anything, or that orders coming in are not complete (you are receiving lower quantities than you ordered), or that someone does not have a clear conscience.

Resolving this type of problem is simpler than you might think: just keep track of all operations involving the goods. For each order coming in, know with certainty what the quantity is and its relative specifications (model, colour, etc.) but also who was responsible for loading it onto the shelves or moving it around.

One of the simplest ways of doing this is to get yourself some Warehouse Management Software to manage and record day-to-day operations. We recommend that you allocate specific tasks and responsibilities to each person or to groups of people so you can more easily get to the heart of the problem. If a particular product type is regularly proving to be faulty, you could turn to the person responsible for its production and request an explanation. You can then understand if it is a problem with how the warehouse is managed or if the problem is down to a careless supplier.

Warehouse safety

Lots of problems? One single solution which improves security in your warehouse

In the last few years, new types of solutions have been arriving on the market which simplify warehouse management and bring improvements in every area: from improvements to throughput in picking operations to security for the entire storage area.
These are automatic vertical warehouses, dedicated product storage systems which are made up of ultra-robust metal trays propelled automatically by an internal elevator and which are able to hold weights of up to 90,000 kg.

Using a simple digital interface, you can control all the goods in your warehouse and with one click you can bring them directly to the delivery level which can be either internal or external, single or double. As you will have noticed, this avoids all dangerous operations normally carried out by people, such as carrying heavy loads, retrieving them from very tall shelves or gangways and mezzanines, and which are generally the main source of accidents. With automatic vertical warehouses, the operator only has to move the goods from the delivery/loading level which is completely ergonomic, protects the operator’s personal safety and prevents issues related to this type of task.

Another very important aspect is that not everyone has access to the automatic vertical warehouse, only those who have been authorised. In this way, you will know exactly who performed certain loading and unloading actions: who accessed which tray, at what time and in which machine. This will allow you not only to keep watch, in real time, over everything that happens in the warehouse but therefore also better manage orders. Moreover, you will be protected from theft of and damage to your goods.

This type of warehouse is recommended for any type of product, from small items up to heavy weights and even expensive goods and allows you to store goods with different sizes and weights thanks to the use of Dynamic Tray Height Storage: in other words, the machine organises the trays according to the various heights of the goods stored in them in order to best manage the space available and not waste even a millimetre of it.

Once your goods are organised into the closed trays, they can no longer become damaged and always stay clean. For this reason, all the above problems simply disappear.

It is well known that keeping a certain amount of merchandise in the form of stock involves costs. In fact, stock is a cash asset which requires a large capital investment and has a direct effect on delivery to customers.

Why does stock accumulate?

The reasons vary greatly, but on the whole stock is essential for covering any shortcomings caused by the temporal inconsistency between supply and demand. To counter this need in the 1980s, the Just in time method was born, an Oriental production philosophy developed within Toyota. “Just in time” fits into a broader methodology of organising production without any waste, pursuing continuous improvement with the aim of creating warehouses without stock and purchasing only when there is demand.  Obviously in many realities, if not exactly in all of them, this is a hypothetical and unrealistic attitude. However, the one thing that we must learn from this philosophy is that limiting the quantity and value of stock stored in warehouses allows large capital savings.

If the goal is to keep stock to a minimum, it is a given that purchases will have to be much more frequent, with little chance of volume-related discounts and high costs in terms of order preparation and despatch times for the procurement department.

On the one hand, therefore, we have the cost of ownership, referring to the stock of inventory goods, on the other the cost of supply, linked to handling a large number of orders.

Inventory management, or stock management, aims to reach a compromise between these two costs while at the same time meeting overall business choices and goals as well as the strategies of each department. In fact, while finance departments prefer to maintain low stock levels to save capital outlays, marketing departments push for high stock levels so as to allow them to offer and increase discounts.

Stock management models: the variables to consider

There are multiple stock management models and there is not one that suits every company.

When deciding which road to go down and what system to adopt, you must consider the following variables:

  • Company goals and business types
  • Type of stocks: raw materials, semi-finished products or finished products
  • Goods Rotation Index: indicates the number of times that goods are “rotated” or “renewed” over a certain period of time within the warehouse
  • Lead time of supply, that is, the time it takes from issuing the order to receiving the ordered goods
  • Demand characteristics: volatility, unpredictability, etc. Two types of demand can be identified: independent demand refers to market conditions and is therefore dependent on factors outside the company and therefore by nature unpredictable, and dependent demand refers to companies that build and assemble a finished product. This is predictable and strictly depends on the final product
  • Available resources to devote to managing and organising stock: human capital and/or physical capital

Given these variables, there are three main questions to ask yourself and to get answers to:

  1. How much to order?
  2. When to order?
  3. How to check the efficiency of the system?

Let’s look at this last aspect.

Managing stock efficiently and effectively

As mentioned earlier, there are several systems for managing stock, and not one can be considered the best across the board. The optimal solution differs from company to company, but there are some common principles that can be implemented regardless of the type of system used and which guarantee effective stock management.

Ascertain the priority of items in the warehouse

An easy way to do this is to use the ABC system and subdivide the products into three categories based on their usage value (high, middle, and low). Generally, it is common to implement this system using Pareto’s law, according to which 80% of sales come from 20% of all items. Items in category A will therefore be those that need more attention. Classifying them in this way allows you to always keep control over availability of the most important stock for production, manage its reordering more efficiently and avoid production downtime.

Always keep inventory data up-to-date

Whenever an action takes place within the warehouse you have to monitor it because it changes the total value of your stock. Only with an up-to-date and true representation of your stock situation at any time can you make effective management decisions.

Plan shelf and compartment layouts so that they can provide a suitable environment for locating and picking items as quickly as possible. It must also be dynamic so that it can be reorganised according to future needs.

Adopt management software

With software, you can automate management of stock movements and simplify it, keep track of all transactions and reduce errors.

Managing warehouse

And what if there were a solution to automate and simplify stock management?

This topic gets talked about more and more, and the answer is automatic vertical tray warehouses. This is a simple solution, and much simpler than fully automatic warehouses. These automatic machines are able to facilitate the management of all items in the warehouseincluding stocks. Arranged vertically, they have an automatic tray handling system and an operator interface that allows you to handle picking and loading requests with just one click. In most cases, they integrate perfectly into your company’s network so that you can monitor all actions performed by any operator.

This solution requires only a limited budget (depending, of course, on the number of machines you want to acquire), and you can keep an eye on your stock situation which is updated in real time. Not only that, automatic vertical warehouses are able to manage your stock automatically and report any items in need of reorder.

Remember that they are machines, and so they will remain. There is therefore a certain amount of research necessary on your part beyond this current session to find the best solution for your business in order to decide when and how many to order. The above points remain valid (variables and decisions to be considered), but if properly planned, inventory management and automatic vertical warehouses can offer an absolutely optimal solution: they reduce errors (almost to the point of eliminating them entirely), save space, time and ensure maximum security for your goods and safety for your operators.
