Always under pressure to drive costs down and boost efficiency, more and more distributors are starting to use 'The Perfect Order' metric to identify where they can improve. A study which surveyed 250 supply chain and distribution managers across the US, UK, France and Germany showed that the average mis-pick costs approximately £14.
Companies who recently conducted evaluations of their workflow process, chose picking (47%) as a key area where costs savings can be achieved.
74% of managers say that increasing distribution centre automation will have the largest impact on profitability. The same percentage make the same assertion when it comes to the adoption of new technology.
