East Granby, CT, October 31, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The thirteenth issue of “Picking Perfection” (a weekly e-newsletter) to be released November 3, 2014 will report how pulling inventory accurately with twice the SKUs more than doubles the risk for picking errors. It is exponentially greater as the chance for a mis-pick increases, particularly in the B2C (Business-to-Consumer) modality. As a result, there is an increasing use of 3PLs (Third party logistics) firms to address the complexity of shipping such a variety of products.
Next week’s newsletter will also address how the International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) has established education mechanisms to ensure 3PL members have an important leg up on the competition. IWLA presents a full slate of courses, workshops, and discussion groups to promote professional development and expose attendees to newer and better ways of doing business. These curriculum challenges, stimulates and educates warehouse logistics professionals, adding to professionalism and employers' bottom lines. By ensuring that 3PLs know about best practices in warehouses, (from Pick-to-light (PTL) to PickCarts), both new warehouse industry workers and long-time practitioners understand the latest industry developments. Several of these courses count toward completion of IWLA's prestigious Warehouse Logistics Professional (WLP) certification.
Each week the newsletter will look at best picking practices.
