Mobile storage carts that enable optimization of product handling to Save Time and Money
New and more efficient processes are rapidly being developed for getting products right to the retailers’ door. Very little is being done, however, about the increasingly outdated processes for delivering products to the shelves, what is called « the final 100 meters. » It is always a big challenge to handle inventory once it is in the warehouse, to find the right items in their boxes and to stock shelves, due to misadapted carts.
This is no small concern, because navigating that last 100 meters can absorb more than 10% of employees’ time. Receipt, placement, labeling and finishing merchandise can create significant obstacles to efficient inventory control and management. What’s more, anything less than optimal efficiency when stocking shelves has a negative impact on product rotation, and that affects sales.
