Drive down supply chain expenses
with a contract operation
Operating a distribution center requires the right people, processes, systems, and tools to do the job efficiently. However, investing in these areas is extremely costly and requires a deep understanding of the intricacies of warehouse operations.
Utilizing a shared or third-party logistics (3PL) warehouse is an option. However, in these scenarios, companies are competing for space availability, dock appointments, and material handling personnel. A contract operation instead provides customers with dedicated staff, equipment, space, and technology.WOW’s Solution
Experienced and reliable
Hiring and managing a quality distribution center team in a tight labor market can be challenging. Employees must be consistently and proactively managed to adhere to best practices, standard operating procedures (SOPs), and safety.
A contract operation relieves companies of this on-going management burden. With WOW Logistics® taking the lead on hiring, training, and managing personnel, warehouses see less employee turnover, improved safety, and better overall performance.
While employees and SOPs guide warehouse operations, it is the warehouse management system (WMS) that drives the overall efficiency. However, many manufacturing companies use enterprise resource planning systems that often neglect inventory management functionality and efficiency.
WOW Logistics has heavily invested in a WMS that delivers features and functionality tailored to efficient warehouse operations. The system is configured by our in-house team of software developers to match statements of work (SOW) and automate SOPs. With this technology, we can drive efficiency within an operation.
