The Need for Accuracy in Warehouse Management

From inventory management to order fulfillment, every aspect of warehouse operations relies on accurate data. A recent article on Supply Chain 24/7 outlines the need for accuracy in warehouse operations. It showcased that 15.1% responded to accuracy on a list of 10 different areas of improvement in warehouse operations.
Why do we need accuracy in a warehouse?
Inaccurate inventory data can cause stockouts and overstocking, resulting in revenue losses of up to 22%. For businesses striving to minimize errors and optimize processes, accuracy is key to operational efficiency and cost-effectiveness.
Accurate inventory data ensures that products are always available when needed, minimizing the risk of stockouts and optimizing costs by reducing excess inventory. This enables warehouse managers to efficiently plan and execute tasks, minimizing idle time and maximizing productivity.
Ultimately, warehouse accuracy directly impacts customer satisfaction. When orders are processed accurately and efficiently, customers receive their products on time and in good condition, leading to positive experiences and fostering repeat business.

How to Gain Accuracy in Warehouse Management?

Manual parcel measurements are prone to errors and inconsistencies eventually leading to the misplacement of items, incorrect inventory records, and ultimately, customer dissatisfaction.
Automating the parcel measurement process and providing accurate dimensional data addresses the accuracy needs in warehouse operations. Investing in automated data capture devices is one of the major efforts for warehouses looking to modernize and optimize their processes.

What is the difference between DIM weight and actual weight?

The actual weight is the exact weight of the product.
DIM weight also called volumetric weight calculates the amount of space a package occupies to its actual weight.

What is DIM weight pricing?

DIM weight pricing is a shipping calculation method that considers the volume of a package in addition to its actual weight. This pricing structure is used by many major shipping carriers, including UPS, FedEx, and the USPS.

Why is DIM weight pricing important?

It is important because helps shipping carriers to accurately calculate the shipping cost as it reflects the actual resources used by the carrier. Furthermore, it encourages shippers to use appropriately sized packages.

How to calculate dimensional weight?

Dimensional weight of the package = L * W * H / Dimensional Divisor
The dimensional divisor is carrier-specific. They vary from carrier to carrier.

How can I avoid overpaying for DIM weight pricing?

  • Measure your packages accurately before shipping them.
  • Use packaging that is the right size for your products, without any extra space.
  • Negotiate with your shipping carrier if possible.
