Rethinking Your Reslotting Strategy: Optimal Slotting Benefits from Slot Maintenance Performed In Sync with Distribution Center Dynamics

Whitepaper Description

This whitepaper focuses on the elements that go into achieving a solid reslotting strategy. Optimal slotting benefits from slot maintenance performed in sync with distribution center dynamics. Opportunistic responses to destabilizing events – such as product volume and mix changes, seasonal demands, and promotions - allow for reslotting that increases picking efficiency. Identifying inflection points and reslotting at the appropriate time using underutilized labor at standard rates minimizes costs and improves payback cycles. Once a slotting strategy has been determined and resultant rules established, slotting technology can be employed to achieve a reslotting strategy that minimizes costs and optimizes efficiency according to the predetermined warehousing objectives.
