How to Effectively Manage your Warehouse Inventory

What is Inventory?

Stock inventory is the collection of all resources and items stored, whether it is for use in the manufacturing process or for sale to customers. Any business owner should prioritise stock control. Inventory management systems will help your business to increase warehouse efficiency, provide greater customer service, and have a clearer visibility of stock value and profit margins.

Why is Inventory Management Important?

Maintaining warehouse inventory accuracy for your business is extremely important. Your organisation could lose a lot of money due to warehouse inventory mismanagement difficulties, whether it’s selecting errors or incorrect shipments.

 

Fulfilment errors can result in higher returns volume which is usually the result of fulfilment failure. High returns can have a negative influence on the company’s earnings and can add to logistical challenges. Fulfilment errors can also have a negative impact on your business’s reputation and customer loyalty.

Companies can have insufficient warehouse inventories for a variety of reasons:

  • Ineffective Processes
  • Broken or damaged goods
  • Picking Errors
  • Orders arriving to the wrong address

Implementing a good warehouse inventory management system will provide your business with greater warehouse efficiencies, improved customer satisfaction, and increase your profit margins. The objective of good inventory management is to shorter lead times, rapid order fulfilment, good product flow, decrease expenses and maximum capacity are all goals within a strong warehouse inventory management plan.

 

Inventory Management Approaches:

Below, we have outlined some inventory management approaches that can help your business improve its warehouse operations. Here at Meteor Space, we can adapt any of these approaches and tailor them to accommodate your unique business needs.

Implement Just in Time (JIT) Inventory Management:

Just in Time inventory management is a way of receiving items from suppliers only a few days before it is required for distribution. This method helps businesses to lower inventory expenses while increasing inventory turnover. The main purpose is to ensure stock does not sit on the shelves for a long period of time.

Just in Time delivery requires careful planning of the entire supply chain and the use of superior WMS software such as Canary 7 to complete the entire process from start to finish, increasing efficiency and removing the possibility of error because each operation is closely monitored.

 At Meteor Space, we provide Just in Time warehousing services which can enable your business to reach a higher level of efficiency and manage your supply chain better. We can store finished and semi-finished goods in our warehouse while delivering the goods to various warehouses when need to fit in with your produce schedule.

Picking and Packaging  

Fast and accurate picking and packing services is required to increase customer satisfaction and provide a positive reputation for your business.

Manual processes are prone to errors and often increase warehousing expenses. Order picking errors increases fulfilment expenses and can provide a negative reputation for your company. Order picking errors can be greatly reduced by using barcodes as it can reduce the possibility of the team picking up the wrong goods or picking similar products. Using barcodes to label each product simplifies selecting and packaging, resulting in increased inventory accuracy ensure the customer receives the correct order.

It can be a difficult procedure to guarantee that your products are adequately sorted and packed. Therefore, outsourcing with a fulfilment company that specialises in picking and packing would free your business time and energy. At Meteor, we offer a range of picking and packing solutions in Ireland and across Europe to suit your business needs.

 

Implement Warehouse Management System:

Implementing warehouse management systems (WMS) such as Canary 7 will provide your business with an insight on how to manage seasonal spikes with increased efficiency. Understanding how these seasonal factors affect your production levels, as well as your customers’ purchase habits, will enable you to benefit on demand peaks and prepare for demand. Using demand forecasting to highlight historical sales and demand patterns to help prepare for seasonal demand which will greatly minimise warehouse storage expenses.

Demand forecasting is essential for ensuring that your business never runs out of stock. Accurate inventory forecasting allows your business to meet customer requirements and fulfil client requests efficiently without having to invest in significant volumes of unwanted stock, lowering the overall operational costs.

Meteor Space use an Inhouse WMS which helps to achieve warehousing excellence. Our inhouse management system (Canary 7) optimises warehouse operations by maximising worker utilisation, inventory, and order management, picking and put away, shipping, and returns. Canary 7 can provide your business with greater insights into your warehouse operations allowing your business to build smarter processes to manage your inventory.

Conclusion:

Inventory is considered the most valuable assets for businesses therefore, without implementing inventory management tactics can have a negative impact on your business. It’s critical to understand how you can improve it to stay up with demand and increase warehouse management performance.

At Meteor Space, we provide order fulfilment solutions to ecommerce businesses who may not have the warehouse facilities to improve inventory accuracy.

4 Fulfilment Tips to Handle Seasonal Demand

The holidays are the busiest time of the year for e-commerce businesses which can be a stressful experience for many businesses and consumers. According to Statista Research Department over 2.14 billion people worldwide are expect to buy goods and services online in 2021. The ecommerce sales are expected to continue to rise especially after the impact of the COVID-19 pandemic.

Merchants face many challenges in the ecommerce market around storing and fulfilling inventory to keep up with the seasonal demands. The ecommerce market is extremely competitive, and businesses often struggle with the volume spikes, therefore, may find it challenging to manage the heavy traffic and order volumes. We have come up with four ecommerce fulfilment tips to help your business manage peak season sales more successfully:

Implement an Inventory Analysis:

Create a clear inventory analysis based on previous years’ sales history and current industry trends. An inventory analysis will allow decision makers to identify the periods of seasonal demand based on historical data which will allow merchants to take control of their profit margins and inventory levels of their businesses. The analysis will allow businesses to adjust their inventory levels when necessary to prepare for future seasonal demands.

 Invest in an Inventory Tracking System:

Investing in a proper inventory management software will allow ecommerce businesses to have a better warehouse management operation in place. Installing inventory management system will allow ecommerce merchants to monitor sales of seasonal items and forecast the scale of demand outside the peak periods to plan inventory levels accurately.

The inventory tracking system also allows business to keep their goods organised and ensure full stock control. Without an inventory tracking system can lead to ineffective inventory management making businesses unaware of low stock levels which can lead to unsatisfied customers and a negative impact on the business.

Using a warehouse management system will allow ecommerce businesses to stay ahead of changing warehouse requirements and achieve warehouse excellence. Canary 7 is a scalable warehouse management system which streamlines warehouse operations by optimising use of staff, inventory, and order management, picking and put away, shipping and returns. The WMS provides monthly development sprints which allow Canary 7 to respond quickly and smoothly to changing warehouse requirements.

 Prepare stock levels:

Preparing sufficient stock is extremely important during the holiday season. High volumes of orders are expected during seasonal periods including Black Friday, Cyber Monday, and Christmas. These periods are extremely competitive therefore, customers will find alternatives if there is no stock available, therefore it is important to have safety stock to sustain the volume of orders. The safety stock will lead to satisfied customers and have a positive reputation for your business during the seasonal periods.

According to the Guardian, because of workforce shortages and transportation disruption caused by Covid and Brexit, Britain’s economy has been thrown into a supply chain crisis, with major retailers’ stock levels at their lowest. As we approach holiday season, there will be pressure in ecommerce businesses due to stock shortages.

There can be many causes to stock shortages including poor forecasting, inaccurate inventory data and inefficient processes. Stock shortages can have a negative impact on sales and the company’s reputation therefore, gaining a better visibility of your businesses operations is extremely vital for the success of the business. Implementing an inventory management system would help businesses to attain better visibility of their operations. A WMS such as Canary 7 will help minimise lead times, eliminate the need for safety stock, and guarantee low stock is supplied by limiting inventory movement and enhancing record accuracy.

 Provide Customers with Regular Updates:

Providing consumers with regular updates on their order will provide your ecommerce business with an advantage. Customers will be satisfied with knowing the progress of their order and this provides the customer peace of mind during the seasonal period that they will receive their Christmas shopping on time.

Conclusion: 

To conclude, with the holiday season fast approaching, it is important to start preparing your supply chain to handle the fluctuation of seasonal demand. Implementing an appropriate warehouse and inventory management strategy will ensure the order fulfilment is more successful during the holiday season. This will result in happier customers and increase repeat customers.

Meteor Space provides order fulfilment solutions to ecommerce businesses who may not have the warehouse facilities to keep up with order volumes. We take pride in improving inventory accuracy, order accuracy and shipping times to increase customer satisfaction.

5 Myths About Outsourcing With a 3PL

For many companies, outsourcing warehouse storage and order fulfilment is an ideal solution to one of the many obstacles faced in today’s business world, particularly with Covid-19 adding to the disruption of the supply chain. In simple terms, a third-party fulfilment provider is an outsourced fulfilment solution that prepares and distributes orders on the behalf of the company.

There are a lot of misconceptions about partnering with a 3PL, such as a fear of losing control, hidden costs etc. However, these misconceptions can lead to businesses missing out in the many benefits of outsourcing fulfilment services, including providing a better service to your customers!

Within this blog, we are going to debunk the most common myths about outsourcing fulfilment.

Myth #1: Fulfilment Companies Only Provide Storage Services.

Companies are often surprised to the range of services offered by 3PLs when considering outsourcing their warehouse. At Meteor Space, all services are tailored to meet your business requirements, including:

  • Warehousing the Goods
  • Kitting the Product
  • Performing Regular Quality Checks
  • Picking & Packing of Goods
  • Labelling the Orders
  • Shipping the Orders to Customers
  • Regular Order Updates for Customers
  • Vendor Managed Inventory
  • Two Person Deliveries
  • Managing Returns for Customers

While a third party can simply be used as a storage facility to free up space, there are a wide range of offerings to help better your warehouse operations, allowing you to focus on other areas of your business while the hassle of warehousing is being handled elsewhere.   

Myth #2: Outsourcing Fulfilment is Too Expensive.

Self-fulfilment might sound like a good idea; however, it can be a time-consuming process for many businesses due to the lack of knowledge and resources, ultimately leading to spending more money than you save.  At Meteor Space, our extensive volume and carrier base allows us to offer competitive rates.

Equally important, is that we provide you with a seamless, cost effective and fully optimized warehousing and fulfilment operation. This is proven to increase customer loyalty for our clients and better profits.  

Outsourcing fulfilment services can reduce labour costs and improve efficiency. Partnering with a 3PL is a great investment which will help your business save time, money, and resources.

Myth #3: Only Large Companies Outsource Fulfilment Services.

Fulfilment is suitable for ecommerce businesses of any size. All ecommerce businesses require a proper order fulfilment process to ensure effective fulfilment operations.

Many small or medium sized businesses experience fluctuations due to seasonal demand or promotions, therefore, it can be difficult for these businesses to manage storage space and on-time deliveries during these busy periods. Partnering with a fulfilment company like Meteor Space allows you to be flexible by scaling up and down without having to increase fixed costs, while continuing to provide an efficient service to your customers.

Myth #4: If I Outsource Fulfilment, I Will Lose Control of My Business.

Many businesses worry that outsourcing their fulfilment may lead to losing visibility of their product and control of deliveries.

At Meteor Space, we have a unique process and relationship with our clients, offering a 360° view of your operations. We keep in constant communication with our clients through video meetings to provide a breakdown of your inventory and warehouse operations, this helps stay ahead of any potential problems in your supply chain.

Our team are always available, and we care about the success of your business.

Myth #5: If I Outsource Fulfilment, Customer Experience will Decline.

Choosing a reliable fulfilment provider is vital for exceeding customer expectations. Partnering with an inexperienced fulfilment company can have a negative impact on business growth and on customer service. It is important that you carry out research on potential partners. An experienced and well managed 3PL will ultimately improve your customer experience, not diminish them.  

Meteor Space understand what it takes to make sure every shipment arrives with your customer safely and on time, with live updates for your customer throughout the journey.

JM Posner Rise to Brexit Logistics Challenges with Meteor Space

Almost a third of British companies that trade with the EU have suffered a decline or loss of business since post-Brexit rules took effect on January 1, according to the Financial Times. However, businesses are adapting and changing to meet the challenges presented by Brexit.

Through innovation and working closely with Meteor Space, JM Posner have been able to improve their services to customers throughout the island of Ireland and EU, after drastically being impacted by Brexit.

Dean Long of JM Posner gives us an insight into how they overcame the challenges of Brexit.

Company Background

JM Posner is a small team of experts dedicated to delivering quality equipment and supplies at a great price to caterers in the UK and Europe.

What was your problem before working with Meteor Space? 

“After Brexit, JM Posner struggled to provide our usual service to many of our Irish and EU customers due to multiple reasons. The majority of our products are food, and there was a lot of confusion on how to pass customs clearances as the rules haven’t been very clear and seem to vary from country to country, as well as increased shipping times due to custom delays at the border, and sometimes even struggling to find a haulier that will take the freight as they were just all overbooked due to the delays they had been experiencing.”

How has Meteor Space helped you solve this problem? 

“Since using Meteor Space, they have provided us a platform to reconnect with our Irish/EU customers again, , allowing us to continue to supply them with the products they require to trade without the hassle of having to source products from elsewhere, which could have led to them having to redevelop products they serve/sell. We have been provided warehouse space to keep stock in NI, enabling us to ensure we are able to meet demand and process the orders efficiently as they come in to ensure that our customers outside of the UK are getting the great service, they previously received from JM Posner pre-Brexit.”

What have you been able to achieve since working with Meteor Space?

“JM Posner have been able to launch our EU website, meaning any non-UK customers can order 24/7 as and when required at a time that suits them, without the stress of having to wait for shipping quotes and the rigmarole of completing custom documents that they had never had to deal with before. It also gives our customers the peace of mind that orders will arrive without the huge delays they were previously experiencing due to customs checks/haulier shortages again.”

Are JM Posner now offering a better service to their customers in Ireland & Europe? 

“JM Posner is now definitely able to provide a better service to our customers in the North & South of Ireland, as well as the reduction in shipping costs making it a better option financially for our customers.

 Meteor have helped to take away the hassle of trying to understand a lot of the legislations, as they were open to interpretation and could be read in so many ways, it was unclear as to what the correct protocol was post-Brexit.

Sales are on the up in Ireland and the EU, and Meteor are helping greatly to ensure our customers are looked after with the service they expect.”

Struggling to Manage Warehouse Overflow?

Overflow of stock and lack of storage space is a common problem for companies in various industries. If your company has reached its warehouse storage capacity, you’re likely taking a productivity hit. Crowded and unorganized aisles significantly impact warehouse efficiency, which can cause your operations to back up and adversely impact your bottom line.

Without expert advice and proper management, warehouse overflow can make your business exposed to many vulnerabilities. Managing overflow is a challenge, but it doesn’t have to be an ongoing problem.

Your Storage Solution

At Meteor Space, we have the resources available to provide your business with extra storage space.

Our warehouse currently has the capacity of 20K pallet space with additional services also available, such as distribution, pick and pack and fulfilment services.

Fulfilment Options

Our same day delivery service means that their production process will not be held up. This allows inventory to be delivered just in time without the client having to store the goods in their own warehouse, freeing up storage space.

Order fulfilment is the most popular option for companies struggling with storage space, particularly ecommerce companies. This option means that you can focus on all other areas of the business and leave the warehousing stress with us as we deliver direct to your customers!
