When analysing the logistics system of any company, it is important to recognise the importance of warehousing solutions and the value that can be added (or lost) through its implementation. In this blog, New Horizon Freight Solution wants to illustrate the importance of warehousing and the value that you can add to your business by making use of a professional warehousing, logistics and freight company such as ourselves.
With a warehouse, your company has selected a centralised location from which to receive, store and then distribute its products. Within the warehouse, staff members will be able to sort and dispatch goods quickly and effectively, as all goods will be brought to one location.
Physical location is also an important factor to consider when considering warehousing solutions. New Horizon Freight Solution is located extremely close to the Durban harbour, which means that we have easy, fast access to goods coming in via sea freight as well as easy access to major highways for subsequent land freight!
In order to ensure that you can provide a reliable and effective fulfilment service, you will need to have products shipped out and delivered in line with customer expectations. Warehousing allows you to build up a buffer of stock, which means that you have at least two months’ worth of your normal supply at hand – at all times – to counteract delays or damaged goods. You will be able to address the issue with your supplier and still meet your customers expectations timeously.
The main goal in a logistics system is to increase service delivery whilst reducing cycle times and costs. Warehousing allows a company to keep an inventory, which means that orders can be shipped on time, consistently. Inventory further affords staff members the ability to let customers know which products are immediately available and which are not, the transparency of which is attractive to customers. Rather than risk losing out on sales because of one’s lack of materials, a company with a warehouse can accrue stock and continue to meet the customers needs.
