Inbound Optimisation

Historically the greatest area of risk in any warehouse is receiving, as stock that does not arrive in your warehouse cannot be protected against theft or damage. Compounding this is the lack of accountability associated with these type of incidents due to the lack of physical evidence required for investigation. Inefficiency in receiving will seep through the core of your operation to devastating effect on your stock accuracy. How accurate is the information on your ERP/WMS?

Our managed team will ensure physical presence of stock through technological means linked to our Integrated Transactional Visualisation. This technology set provides our clients with peace of mind with video footage linked to actual scanning transactions.  Effectively every transaction forms part of a searchable database. Every staff member is then accountable for each related verification transaction. The added benefit of staff working in a monitored environment is an enforced culture of optimised productivity.

Outbound Risk Mitigation

Incidents of theft and collusion are the unfortunate stigmas associated with Dispatch within the Warehouse Industry. Opportunists identify weakness in process flows and rapidly take advantage thereby creating chaos in final phases of your supply chain process. This, unfortunately, will impact on your ability to deliver timeously to your customers. Ultimately it will result in a loss of business due to low customer satisfaction ratings.
Our team of experts will assess your process and layout. We will endeavour to highlight risk in safety, operational execution and technology. Our project team will research the latest trends and analysis in your industry in an attempt to uncover the best and most financially viable solution.
You will then be provided with the opportunity to utilise our full service or consultancy services to optimise the condition of your dispatch area. The results of improved speed and accuracy of delivery will secure existing clientele and negate negative word of mouth both up and down the supply chain ladder.

Functional Outsourcing

Legislative changes have provided business decision makers with an opportunity to contract warehouse industry experts to implement a complete functional outsourcing model. This service incorporates inbound optimisation, outbound risk mitigation and supplementary warehouse specific functionality. The service is managed by Bidvest Vericon in line with agreed KPI’s and governed by a mutually beneficial SLA.

Every warehouse is different in the objective, the culture and the output. The specific need/challenge that has been identified can be addressed by simply investigating the root cause and then addressing it through process re-engineering, staff consultation or both. In other instances there may be challenges that are unique to a particular industry.
