Frustration is the most prevalent emotion
Having just survived the pressures caused by Covid, namely the demand for more rapid turn-round rates and increasing staff shortages, the industry is now facing supply line disruptions as well as a shortage of staff and also micro-chips making the completion of automation equipment more difficult.
It appears that no matter which way the industry turns something puts another obstacle in the way.
So, what’s to do?
The simple answer is to stick to Plan A and do what you can, now.
Distribution Centre Improvement
Staff shortages have made speeding up the distribution centre even harder, so you have turned to automation.
This has been slowed due to the shortage of equipment which depends on microchips, and this means that the build of the automated area has been stalled.
However, in the interim, all the preparation work can take place, but how to tackle this and in which order, these are the questions.
Masters at organizing these issues are The Logistics Improvement Group. (LiG)
