Introduction

The rate expansion of eCommerce is increasing in magnitude, resulting in a surge of online order demands. To match the customer expectations, several warehouses are in a rush to deliver the products promptly. But how can we fulfill customer expectations by following the traditional working prototype?

Episode 16: How can we improve warehouse operation to boost quick delivery?

Are you still of the opinion that a conventional warehouse is a major contributor to last-mile delivery?
Nowadays, warehouses are the backbone of eCommerce businesses. Inefficient warehouses, however, do not ship or receive the products on time. Moreover, your firm loses money and credibility when the warehouse associate is not as productive as they should be. Understanding this, the warehouse owner must know how to streamline the operations smoothly. With the best mix of practices like automating the iterative tasks and deploying the right warehouse technology, we can effectively uplift warehouse operations and last-mile delivery.
As part of our logistics insight video series, Alphonse would suggest optimising the warehouse and logistics to improve last-mile delivery promptly.

Logistics planning reduces risk in a changing environment by helping organisations to anticipate change and establish strategies to adapt to it.
