East Granby, CT, November 07, 2014 --(PR.com
)-- The fourteenth issue of “Picking Perfection” (a weekly e-newsletter) to be released November 10, 2014, will report that 95 percent of the US's chief executives believe they should have some form of logistics strategy, and nearly 50 percent are currently incorporating supply chain planning into overall business strategies. The industry's 3PL provider alone counts for more than $78 billion and is estimated to be growing by 15-20 percent per year.
Next week’s newsletter will also address how third-party logistics providers offering warehousing, trucking, and storage solutions for retail companies are experiencing significant growth as business increases; automation to meet the demands of growing list of clients almost always translates to improving the picking process. Most often to overcome language barriers and support lean ergonomic best practices, Pick-to-light (PTL) is ranked as the best solution to reduce operational costs, improve productivity, and reduce errors. International Warehouse Logistics Association (IWLA) suggested the 3PL benefits can be quantified by a reduced need for personnel, reduced transportation and distribution costs, improved customer service, improved cycle time, and frees-up capital in manufacturers' and marketers' non-core areas.
Each week the newsletter will look at best picking practices.
