5 Ways to Optimize Storage Assignment and Order-Picking With Eastcoast Warehouse

If you are a business owner, you need more than a safe space for your products. You need a warehousing solution that can take care of your supply chain and distribution. Most importantly, you need one that allows you to store your pallets in the right place for easy location and shipping. 

At East Coast Warehouse and Fulfillment, you can get both. Here are five ways you can use our distribution and fulfillment services to optimize your order-picking and storage assignment: 

Tip #1: Take Advantage of Our E-Commerce Integration

Our fulfillment services excel because we have included e-commerce integrations into our logistics process. Aware of this integration, we make it a point to be efficient as we ship your goods ordered from your online store.

We need to maintain the utmost efficiency as we do this. As the logistics part of your business, we ensure that the selected goods are on a pallet and ready for shipping.   

Tip #2: Determine and Communicate Your Needs

Not all products will require the same type of storage and need to be available in stock for a long time. Some, like food, will require better availability. This can affect how we assign a storage area. By extension, storage will influence shipping.

So, you need to be clear with your needs. After disclosing your goals and the nature of your products to us, we will be better equipped and informed to ensure the right storage pallet and area in our warehouse. 

Tip #3: Consider Assigning Different Storage Areas

Indeed, having your products in one location in our warehouse can shorten pick-up and shipping times. After all, our staff would only need to look in one place. However, this may not be the best option if you have 10 or 20 products in your online store’s catalog. 

Assigning different storage areas may look inefficient. However, it reduces the chances of shipping errors that can lead to customer dissatisfaction. Our warehouse has a high storage capacity and a large number of areas. Use them to your advantage!

Tip #4: If You a Subscription Box Business, Keep It All in One Place

On the other hand, you may be selling multiple items that need regular shipping. This is known as a subscription box business. 

Subscription box shipping requires bundling. Bundling, while not necessarily labor-intensive, can be made more efficient by having your goods in one place. Again, assign a single place of storage only if you provide subscription boxes. 

Tip #5: Leave All the Guesswork to Us!

Optimizing storage assignment and order-picking have long been issues for online entrepreneurs. These are the issues that we have tailored our processes to. 

By allowing us to manage your inventory, you can bet on efficient shipping fulfillment with little to no errors and delays.
