Analyze Profitability by Account
The key to improving warehouse profit margins revolves around your ability to gain a detailed understanding of the activities that make your business money—as well as the ones that cost you dollars every day.
Evaluate Warehouse Staff
An effective tune-up to increase profits must include an evaluation of everyone on your payroll. This analysis should involve both hard dollar evaluations of each team member and their costs.
Question Processes and Workflows
3PL operations often revolve around a series of repetitive processes that are designed to get products out of the door quickly. An analysis of every internal process will identify areas of improvement.
Assess Physical Assets
Is your current equipment enabling you to achieve peak efficiency—or is it obsolete, slow, or frequently malfunctioning? If any of these are true for your warehouse, it could cost you more money than you realize.
As with almost any business, technology is one of the fastest, most powerful, and most cost-effective ways to upgrade operational performance.
