Warehouse putaway is the process of placing incoming goods into designated storage locations within a warehouse facility. It’s a critical step in the supply chain that involves not only the physical act of storing items but also strategic decision-making to optimize storage space and accessibility.
Efficient putaway procedures are essential for several reasons:
Optimized Space Utilization: Proper putaway ensures that every inch of your warehouse space is used efficiently, reducing the need for additional storage space.
Faster Retrieval: Organized storage makes it easier to locate and retrieve items quickly, reducing order processing times.
Error Reduction: Well-organized putaway reduces the risk of misplaced items or inventory errors.
Create a detailed map of your warehouse layout, marking storage locations and access points.
Label storage locations clearly to ensure accuracy during putaway and retrieval.
Implement strategies like First-In-First-Out (FIFO) or Last-In-First-Out (LIFO) based on the nature of your inventory.
