A good warehouse consultant can be a wonderful thing. There are a number of things our warehouse consultants can help you with, including:
- Optimizing your warehouse layout.
- Increasing your warehouse efficiency.
- Decreasing your fulfillment error rate.
- Integrating automation in your warehouse.
All of these things can have a direct impact on your bottom line, helping to increase your profits while you decrease your costs. If you’ve never worked with a warehouse consultant, you probably have a lot of questions about what it’s like and if it’s the right choice for your warehouse. The DAK Equipment & Engineering team put together this Frequently Asked Questions (FAQ) guide to working with a warehouse consultant so you can learn more and see if it could be a good thing for your warehouse or distribution center.
What can a warehouse consultant help with?
There are a huge variety of things! Along with the items listed above, a warehouse consultant can also help with strategic planning, racking inspection services, repair services, and project management. This can help you ensure you are doing what’s best for your warehouse while you focus on other profit-boosting projects.
Are the solutions one-size-fits-all?
Not at all. Our warehouse consultants carefully evaluate your warehouse to determine what challenges you are facing and how they can best be overcome. Thanks to the years of experience our warehouse consultants have, they can find a huge variety of solutions that meet the needs of your budget and your warehouse. We tailor every solution for every client.
Will the work in our warehouse have to stop?
Hardly ever. We make it a point to work with the operations of your warehouse as much as possible. A lot of our solutions involve phased implementation so we disrupt your operations as little as possible. If you have particular concerns, we’ll work around them. Just talk to your project manager and we’ll find the solution that works for you.
Do you have references or case studies?
Absolutely! We know you want to make sure that you are making the best choice for your warehouse and part of that is making sure you are hiring the right warehouse consultants. To help you make that decision, we can provide you with both references from previous clients and case studies that detail what we’ve done for them. That will show you what we can do for your warehouse or distribution center and how much our clients love what we’ve done for them!
What is the process like?
First, we’ll talk to you about your warehouse and the challenges that you are facing. Secondly, we’ll evaluate your warehouse, looking at how you currently work, how the space is set up, and the kind of warehouse equipment that you are working with right now. Then, we’ll get to work. We’ll develop a number of options that help you overcome the challenges of your warehouse that stay within your budget. Once you’ve approved the plan, we’ll get to work. Our team will implement the improvements to your warehouse from start to finish and make sure you love the final results.
