Warehouse automation is the key to improving these processes without increasing labor costs.
Warehouse Control and Execution Systems provide a drastic increase in product processing while also providing a significant reduction in labor expenses. If you want to meet the demands of Ecommerce order fulfillment and poise your business for growth, you need to improve the pack and ship functions with high accuracy and efficient product labeling and sorting. Replacing outdated processes with efficient, lean automation technologies provides rapid return on investment (ROI) while boosting order fulfillment throughput rates.
Warehouse Control Systems Solve Labor Shortage Problems
It is proving difficult for businesses to continue to meet the increasing demand for same day shipments with the current labor shortage. It is costlier than just a year ago to fill manual labor positions with increasing wages for even entry-level positions required to attract and retain employees.

Designing your distribution center or warehouse operations by analyzing all systems including inventory management, picking, packing, shipping and receiving achieves maximum cost savings with quick return on investment (ROI). Analyzing each area of warehouse movements reveals areas for improvement, but by combining all systems for total warehouse control, companies realize maximum benefits and cost savings. Performing movement analysis and re-slotting for optimizing pick path is a good first step, but combining streamlined warehouse design with warehouse control, execution and automated technologies drastically improves productivity and profitability.
Warehouse Control and Execution by Numina for High Profitability
Numina Group is recognized for implementing lean pick and pack processes which eliminate wasted touches for improved efficiency and accuracy while reducing labor expenses.

A good warehouse design requires both a short-term implementation phase along with long-term defined goals, both aligned with the company’s overall business objectives. Companies must first determine their multi-year goals and objectives across the entire organization and realize where they are in their long-term plan. Without this overall long-term approach, businesses will only yield incremental, limited returns and benefits that may be costly to change and incorporate their long-term goals when realized.
A proper warehouse design should assess which improvements can be made across all aspects of the operation, picking, packing, and shipping. It may seem easiest to correct the low hanging fruit, usually the section with the highest touches. However, correcting one aspect of the warehouse usually forces a bottleneck into another. The best approach would be to consider your workflow as a lot size of one, and streamline your processes across all warehouse operations. This is accomplished by performing an in-depth valuation with value stream mapping practices to clearly identify wasted touches and excess steps in each process.
