Warehouse Management: How To Make Warehouse Operations Run Smoothly For Scaling Brands

It's no secret that the logistics industry is in despair. The availability of warehouse space was just 5.6%. That's an all-time low and dramatic fall from the 8.5% reported at the start of 2016. As a result, retailers are being pushed to squeeze as much value out of each square foot. From the way they store inventory to the method of picking orders, strong warehouse management processes help retailers run their warehouses like a well-oiled machine. This guide shares how. Table of contents What is warehouse management? The benefits of having warehouse management technology Inventory management and warehouse management: How do they work together? Warehouse management processes Warehouse management best practices Advantages of working with a 3PL for warehouse management What to look for in warehouse management technology What is warehouse management? Warehouse management is the set of operational processes that help a warehouse run efficiently. These processes include tracking inventory levels, locating goods, managing staff schedules, fulfilling orders, and optimizing warehouse space. What is a warehouse management system? A warehouse management system (WMS) is the software that helps a business complete operational tasks within its warehouse. From resource planning to supply chain logistics, it's a technology retailers use to fulfill customer orders from a warehouse or distribution center. Some merchants have their WMS as subsection of wider enterprise resource planning (ERP) software—one central dashboard for ecommerce brands to control all aspects of the business. The benefits of having warehouse management technology The global supply chain is in disarray. Manufacturing and shipping times are much longer than they once were—an issue not set to resolve itself anytime soon. McKinsey reports that significant disruptions to manufacturing production now occur every 3.7 years, with reasons ranging from political instability to natural disasters. Ultimately, a WMS will help you speed up your receiving, cycle counting, and fulfillment, resulting in more efficient processes and reduced labor costs. Nick Malinowski, Co-founder of OTW Shipping A WMS that syncs with your inventory management system helps you stay one step ahead, hence why 38% of the merchants we surveyed plan to integrate technology to help their company anticipate disruptions and demand. Inside one, you'll see dropping inventory levels to prioritize replenishment. If you know that one bestselling SKU sells 500 units per week, but it takes three weeks to receive shipments from a supplier, for example, set an alert to notify you once stock levels drop below 2,000 (leaving extra leeway in case a spanner is thrown into the works.) Using a warehouse management system, you'll be able to track every product in your warehouse and help boost your customer experience by giving them accurate visibility on your product's availability. Perry Valentine, Founder of AtPerry's Combine those alerts with historical data for accurate inventory forecasting, using your WMS. Every item in your warehouse is costing you money, both in storage fees and opportunity costs. Poorly performing inventory is taking space that should be given to higher volume, faster moving, and ultimately, more profitable stock. Ben Clarke, interim Head of Marketing for James and James Ecommerce Fulfilment, says, “By ensuring that products are always shelved in the most efficient way possible, and by providing real-time visibility of stock levels, a warehouse management system can help avoid overstocking or running out of popular items. This can save significant amounts of money on inventory carrying costs.” Inventory management and warehouse management: How do they work together? The key to success in global ecommerce is to sell in the channels where your customers are. From social media storefronts to mobile commerce, this multi-channel retail strategy is notoriously hard for retailers to get a grasp on. You neve...

Brittany Traylor and Joe Lynch discuss the TraylorTranspo story. Brittany is the CEO of TraylorTranspo LLC, an asset light brokerage that specializes in power-only moves, which typically means the carrier provides the tractor and the shipper provides the trailer. About Brittany Traylor Brittany Traylor is the Founder and CEO of TraylorTranspo, an asset-based freight brokerage that streamlines the logistics function and delivers a superior customer experience using consumer-grade freight tech (Turvo). Prior to launching her own company in 2021, Brittany was an owner-operator for over 5 years. During that time, Brittany drove dry van, flat bed, and over-dimensional loads all over the lower 48 states. As a driver, she gained first-hand insights into the challenges facing both truck drivers and shippers. When she founded her own company, Brittany committed to building a better brokerage, with a real connection to both drivers and shippers. Brittany was raised in the foster care system in Germany and moved to the USA as an adult so her success hasn't come easily. With the goal of paying it forward, Traylor Transpo partners with the Texas Workforce Commission to help people get their start in logistics and supply chain. About TraylorTranspo  TraylorTranspo is an asset-based freight brokerage based in Dallas, Texas. Traylor was founded by an owner-operator, Brittany Traylor who wanted to create a tech-centric brokerage that puts people first – so employees, drivers, carriers, and shippers are all family at Traylor. The company specializes in drop and hook shipments (power-only) and open-deck transportation. The company also moves a lot of scrap, which is a notoriously difficult type of freight to haul. Traylor's technology streamlines the shipping process, reduces cost, and facilitates collaboration. TraylorTranspo also has a social mission of helping people typically under-represented in logistics - get their start. About Turvo Turvo is the world's first multi-enterprise collaborative platform specifically designed for the global supply chain. The Turvo platform connects people and organizations across the supply chain, allowing shippers, logistics providers, and carriers to digitally transform their workflows with cloud-based software and mobile applications. The technology unifies all systems, internal and external, providing one end-to-end system of record set for all operations and analytics while eliminating redundant manual tasks and automating business processes. Turvo is based in the San Francisco Bay Area with offices in Dallas, Texas, and Hyderabad, India. Key Takeaways: The TraylorTranspo Story Brittany Traylor is the Founder and CEO of TraylorTranspo, an asset light brokerage that specializes in power-only moves, which typically means the carrier provides the tractor and the shipper provides the trailer. In the podcast interview, Joe and Brittany discuss Brittany's difficult childhood, moving to America as a young adult, and the founding of TraylorTranspo. Power only trucking is a full truckload move that occurs when a carrier provides only a driver and a tractor or “power unit.” With power only moves, the driver does not bring a trailer, but instead hooks up to and hauls a trailer that is either leased or owned by a 3PL or shipper. Drop and hook shipments became more popular after the hours of service (HOS) and electronic logging device (ELD) mandate took effect in 2019. With drop and hook shipments, drivers are able to spend more time driving because they are not involved in live loads / uploads. Drivers simply drop the trailer and the shipper unloads the trailer when they have time. For pickups, drivers hook up the trailer and get back to driving. Because of her difficult upbringing, Brittany makes a point of giving people an opportunity to succeed. TraylorTranspo works closely with the Texas Work Force Commission to hire and train people who often are not given a chance – this has lead to a very loyal team and family-like culture at the company. Traylor is a small, but fast growing brokerage that is uses freight tech (Turvo) to streamline the shipping process, reduce costs per load, and deliver a superior customer experience for both carriers and shippers.

#127 - Kit Digital: un programa para digitalizar las empresas de España, con Stefano Di Loreto y Jesús Andujar

¿Por qué elegir España frente a otros países europeos? Después de USA, es el mayor mercado electrónico por volumen de ventas. Además tiene otra gran ventaja que es la ayuda europea a las empresas con la digitalización de sus negocios con fondos de regeneración post Covid 19, conocidos como Fondos Next Generation Kit Digital. El programa piloto comenzó este año en España y se espera que para el año que viene se repita la convocatoria.  AVASK fue nombrado agente digitalizador por el programa y puede gestionar los bonos digitales no sólo en su trámite, sino en su ejecución. Por eso, en este episodio invitamos a Stefano Di Loreto, Business Manager para España e Italia en AVASK, y Jesús Andujar, quien también dentro del equipo de AVASK en Europa es el International Business Development Officer. “El Kit Digital es una iniciativa del gobierno español que tiene como objetivo principal llevar a las empresas a un nivel significativo en cuanto a la madurez digital de sus plataformas de gestión, y para lograr ese fin se hace uso de los fondos destinados por la comunidad europea post Covid y así se subvenciona la implantación de soluciones digitales para las empresas”, explica Stefano. “Aquí en Europa, luego de la pandemia, se dieron cuenta que lo único que funcionó fue el comercio electrónico y es lo que sujetó a las economías de todos los países miembros de la UE. Al igual que el siglo pasado, luego de la Segunda Guerra Mundial, hubo un impulso económico a través de los fondos Next Generation y se pusieron en marcha varias iniciativas. Unas se basan en llevar el Covid de la mejor manera posible; y otras, de cara a futuro, a impulsar a las PYMES y a los autónomos a desarrollarse digitalmente. Este programa piloto está teniendo sus réplicas y tendrá en el futuro otros modelos en otros países miembros de la UE”, asegura Jesús.     Como bien decíamos anteriormente, este programa ayuda a colaborar en las necesidades que pueda llegar a tener una empresa tanto en su página web, como marketplace y redes sociales, entre otros espacios digitales. “Desde AVASK ayudamos a tramitar esa ayuda, como buscarles un especialista para el desarrollo de listings en Amazon”, suma Jesús. Por su parte, Stefano destaca que “es importante considerar que esta ayuda del Estado es dinero que se obtiene gratuitamente, sin compromiso de retorno, simplemente el compromiso formal a invertir en las soluciones de digitalización”, y remarca: “Es una gran oportunidad que tenemos en España para recibir a todos los e-sellers que quieren entrar al mercado europeo, sentar bases en España y dar soluciones en términos de e-Commerce”. Para acceder al programa, es necesario registrar la empresa en España. “Un requisito del Kit Digital es que tengas registrada la empresa en España seis meses con el VAT español. Como ahora se están abriendo los tramos de petición del Kit Digital durante 12 meses, si vienes a registrarte en España y estás seis meses, puedes pedir esa subvención dentro de seis meses y cuando seas beneficiario del bono podrás utilizar esos fondos para tus necesidades con agentes digitales del programa, no con empresas terceras. AVASK es un agente digital del programa y podemos activar ese bono que te da el Estado”, resalta Jesús. “Si uno quiere realizar la expansión con la misma empresa que tiene en Estados Unidos, se debe abrir y registrar la compañía en España con el VAT y hacer las declaraciones correspondientes, porque mandaría parte de su inventario de Estados Unidos a España. Lo que nosotros sugerimos es que se abra una SL española y se separe el mundo de Amazon USA con su LLC y el mundo de Amazon Europa con una limitada española, porque luego ese negocio en Europa llega a un nivel de madurez tal que puede ser interesante para realizar un exit con una agregadora que nosotros ayudamos a contactar para que les hagan una oferta”, recomienda Jesús. Respecto a la logística, Jesús cuenta que hay partners de 3PL que ya están establecidos en España y en distintos puntos de Europa, y luego está la logística de Amazon FBA. “Para el movimiento de mercancía nos apoyamos en la estructura de Amazon, de los warehouses, y si quieres almacenar tu mercancía hay otros partners que se encargan del transporte y otros servicios del 3PL. Le entregas tu mercancía y ellos te la mueven dependiendo de tu necesidad y movimiento de ventas”, informa Stefano.   El bono que ofrece el programa varía dependiendo del número de empleados que tenga la empresa. Según Jesús, se divide en tres segmentos: de 0 a 3 empleados te dan un bono de 2 mil euros, de 3 a 9 empleados son 6 mil euros y los bonos grandes corresponden a PYMES medianas de 10 a 49 empleados. Como cierre, Jesús comenta que cuentan con los equipos contables desde AVASK que ayudan a llevar los libros contables anuales: “Si eres una LLC lo podemos hacer nosotros y, si te estableces como una empresa española, uno de nuestros partners locales colaborará con eso”.

A proud visionary immigrant, start-up addict, and true entrepreneur, Dean van Zyl is the Founder of National Adhesive which operates multiple brands such as Great Stuff, GlueAngel, THICC, and EISH! Dean shares how to navigate the decision process about where to start with Amazon, what content you need to create great listings, and what to consider when choosing FBM or FBA. Takeaways: Even if your product is available through wholesale retailers, you can reach a larger consumer base through also selling on Amazon. One of the main reasons to sell through Amazon instead of selling to Amazon as a vendor is that you maintain control of your prices. This is especially important if you are also selling through distributors who are worried about being undercut by Amazon.Before launching on Amazon, there's a lot you need to do starting with building your team to handle the Amazon operations, researching how your competitors are doing on Amazon, creating content for your listings, and connecting all the software.The content that you need for a product listing extends far beyond one picture and a small description. You need to develop additional content such as how-to videos, infographics, and more.If you are selling through multiple e-commerce platforms and using a 3PL (3rd Party Logistics) for your fulfillment, it might be best to start with FBM. However, FBA removes many of the headaches associated with 3PLs and FBA also helps your conversion rate. Building out a strong ERP infrastructure is imperative when you are dealing with multiple e-commerce platforms to make sure you can monitor your operations for each platform. Quote of the Show:“Sometimes it's about making the wrong decision a few times before realizing I needed to make the right one earlier ” - Dean van ZylLinks:LinkedInCompany websiteGreat Stuff Amazon StorefrontShout Outs:The E-Myth Revisited by Michael E.

As you grow your Amazon FBA business, so too should you scale your fulfillment.  Employing a 3PL service opens up a wealth of opportunities and helps shield your business from Amazon inventory limits, stockout penalties, and supply chain delays.  But not all 3PLs are created equal, so how do you find the right 3PL to suit your business's unique needs? Few people are better qualified to answer this question than Taylor Smits. Taylor is an Amazon seller and the Co-founder of My FBA Prep, a SaaS-based 3PL service that helps eCommerce brands scale their operations by streamlining logistics and fulfillment.

According to Taylor,  “As an Amazon seller, the biggest question to ask a 3PL service is “What's the turnaround time for getting inventory prepped and into Amazon warehouses.” That time period is going to directly affect your cash flow cycle. It's also important to ask if they have experience working with businesses similar to yours so that you know they can meet your expectations.” This interview will provide you with the information you need to break free of your fulfillment restrictions and watch your FBA business thrive!

As you grow your Amazon FBA business, so too should you scale your fulfillment.  Employing a 3PL service opens up a wealth of opportunities and helps shield your business from Amazon inventory limits, stockout penalties, and supply chain delays.  But not all 3PLs are created equal, so how do you find the right 3PL to suit your business's unique needs?

Mike and Dave ponder EcomCrew's early years as they bid a bittersweet goodbye to the company's first employee.   July was an interesting month. For me, my top line number went down, but my bottom line number went up – thanks to reduced PPC costs, raised product prices, and AGL.   Dave, on the other hand, rants about the ridiculous sales tax being imposed on businesses based in British Columbia.   We also discuss our takes on 3PL, which Dave and I are approaching very differently: I'm slowly weaning off of it, while Dave is heavily reliant on it (for an inevitable yet valid reason).   In more devastating news: Abby, EcomCrew's employee #1 and brand manager is leaving us. This was bound to happen eventually, but it still feels very sad that it's actually happening.   That concludes our July Brand Report. It's definitely going to be challenging without Abby and we'll miss her for sure, but that's life. We wish her all the best in her journey.   We never have enough time on the podcast to cover everything in our Brand Report, so if you want to see the full-length report, check out the blogpost here.

Hey everybody and welcome back to Eggs! Today we have special guest — the founder and CEO of Profasee — Chad Rubin.Chad is a lifelong entrepreneur. In 2008 he decided to set up his first eCommerce shop — Crucial vacuum — selling vacuum cleaner parts out of his garage. It was a great success! It wasn't long before that site exploded from just one to thousands of different SKUs, but that experience showed Chad one thing. Due to a lack of proper technology to manage their growth — and thousands of products — their warehouse became an absolute jungle to manage. To solve his own problem, Chad created Skubana, which went on to become one of the most powerful operations platforms in e-commerce.On the back of the Skubana platform, Crucial Vacuum evolved from selling vacuum cleaner parts exclusively to covering all the replacement parts for your home. It also got a new name — Think Crucial. Skubana was eventually acquired by 3PL central, and in addition to the continued success of Think Crucial, in 2021 Chad launched his latest venture — Profasee. Profasee is a platform that enables Amazon resellers to dynamically predict the perfect price and the perfect moment for the products they sell using AI and comprehensive data management.Joining us today for a conversation about his entrepreneurial journey, starting, scaling, and selling businesses, the state of eCommerce and so much more.

Looking to expand your business into the EU? In this episode, Andy Hooper joins Matt to discuss how to make the most of your expansion strategy and tips for succeeding in new markets. ABOUT ANDY Andy is the CEO of Global E-Commerce Experts, has been successfully expanding e-commerce brands into new markets for over 15 years. An accomplished specialist in e-commerce, Andy now works with companies around the world providing comprehensive gateways and solutions to new markets, especially US-based organizations transitioning into Europe. Starting from the ground up, Andy has carved out a niche inspired by his own experience and success of growing an organization's profits through e-commerce. With an infectious energy for success, Andy leads a team of professionals in all aspects of e-commerce. With fulfillment centers in the UK & EU, the Global E-Commerce team provides hassle-free end-to-end solutions that have helped 1000's of sellers capitalize on the multi-billion dollar UK & EU markets. When not working, Andy can often be found enjoying sailing, cycling, and kayaking with his friends and family on England's south coast. Here's a summary of the great stuff that we cover in this show: Global E-Commerce Experts essentially started by solving the problem for overseas sellers expanding into Europe. They worked with around 2000 clients that they've expanded, and doing that across lots of different services, be it compliance, or logistics or account management, they came up with a pathway looking at what successful clients were doing and what the data was telling them, bridging that gap to make it easy. Andy has developed seven basic steps for a success pathway to expand into Europe - market research, compliance, marketplace, 3PL, promote products, website and growth. Market research is all about understanding the size of the market, and that your products are relevant to be sold in those areas and product sourcing. Compliance comprises of product and business compliance aspects. Marketplace is about identifying what's the best marketplace for you to launch on. 3PL or a third-party logistics operation is required to store, fulfil, rework, or return your goods. To promote your products, you need to have a great marketing strategy that generates traffic. If you get switched off from a marketplace, you need to be able to sell your products somewhere and so it's essential to build your own website, which would allow you not just to sell in your own country but anywhere. Finally, growth or scale is about identifying what additional marketplaces you can sell on to capitalise on everything you're doing to take it to the next level. Enjoying listening to our conversation about EU expansion:-)For complete show notes, transcript and links to our guest, check out our website: https://my.captivate.fm/www.ecommerce-podcast.com (www.ecommerce-podcast.com).

These buyers now have access to a wealth of information and do their own research on how to solve supply chain problems, and what providers can do to help. At LMA, we help logistics businesses get found by prospects during this research phase.

Independents/private fleets connection engine, a haul for breast cancer, and a legend remembered

In this edition of the Overdrive Radio podcast, we'll drop into an interview Overdrive News Editor Matt Cole conducted with Arrive Logistics Chief Strategy Officer J-Ann Tio, about the broker-3PL's “We Deliver Flexibility” program. The trial run for the program is getting its footing as a connection engine between independent owner-operators and small fleets in Arrive's network and larger private fleets the company also does business with. The Arrive program, as Tio notes, hopes to alleviate issues on both sides of the coin, for owner-operators enduring the deflationary rates environment in the spot market and for private fleets needing safe and professional capacity. It could well be a way into new opportunities for owners both inside and out of Arrive's network, as Tio describes it, in fact -- a chance to develop new contracts for freight with large clients that might typically not have much of an interest doing direct business with smaller fleets. There's more in today's episode, though, too. If you've missed it as yet, hear our own "Long Haul Paul" Marhoefer's moving eulogy for Ken “Shoestring” Waugh, part of Overdrive's "Over the Road" collaboration with PRX's Radiotopia podcast network. And: Catch the latest from trucker-songwriter extraordinaire Tony Justice. Justice delivered a $33,000-plus check to the Susan G. Komen Foundation for breast cancer awareness and research this Monday in Nashville. After that presentation out front of the Country Music Hall of Fame, we sat with Justice and his wife, Misty, to hear about the haul raised by the well more than 100 owner-operators, small fleet owners, show vendors and more who participated in the first-ever Large Cars and Guitars truck show in Kodak, Tennessee, back in May. And there's a bonus in that conversation, too: Team Justice has big things planned for the new year, with a newly-custom-wrapped 2002 Prevost they've started using for their music work. And, no, contrary to any road rumors you may have heard, Justice hasn't yet hung up the keys the rig he pilots for Everhart Transportation out of Greeneville, Tennessee.

Aaron Schwartz and Joe Lynch discuss ecommerce's dirty little secret. Aaron is the President of Loop, a post-purchase platform that enables brands to transform returns into exchanges. About Aaron Schwartz Aaron Schwartz is the President of Loop with an extensive history working, advising, and investing in startups. With 10+ years in modern Commerce, Aaron's focus tends to be on all things go to market, fundraising, strategy, and helping founders navigate emotionally through the early stages of company building. As a 3x founder himself, Aaron's passion for Commerce has led him to his position at Loop today. Aaron received his undergraduate degree from Columbia University, and his masters from the University of California, Berkeley, Haas School of Business. He joined Loop in April of 2021. About Loop Loop is a post-purchase platform that enables Shopify's biggest brands, such as Allbirds, FIGS, Princess Polly and Chubbies, to transform returns into exchanges. Based in Columbus, Ohio, the company helps over 1,200 brands increase customer loyalty, retain more revenue, and lower reverse logistics costs. Through innovative features like Instant Exchanges, Shop Now, and Bonus Credit, Loop has helped merchants retain more than $400 million in revenue over the past five years. Key Takeaways: Ecommerce's Dirty Little Secret Aaron Schwartz is the President of Loop, a post-purchase platform that enables brands to transform returns into exchanges. In the podcast interview, Joe and Aaron discuss ecommerce's dirty little secret, which is returns. Ecommerce buyers return up to 30% of online purchases – the number varies greatly by product and company, but it is a problem for everyone. Loop specializes in returns and they have made a science of it. Loop's goal is to change returns into exchanges. Loop manages the pixels, not the parcels meaning they are a technology company and they utilize the 3PL specified by the brand. Most brands focus on sales, marketing, and fulfillment and the returns process and costs are overlooked. Loop's platform completely integrates with their customer's systems, which enables Loop to manage the return process. Loop's technology integration and seamless handling of the return process has the following advantages: Enables brands to focus on growing their business. Loop's online return process is a nice experience for consumers and they are often convinced to exchange the product rather than ask for a return. When a return is transformed into an exchange, customer satisfaction rises, and the brand makes more money.

About Larry Gordon  Larry Gordon is the Managing Director, GTM, Emtec Digital. Prior to joining Emtec, Larry has held senior leadership positions at Cognizant and Capgemini and has founded and led IT services and software companies in the security, devops and digital transformation segments. He has also been a successful angel investor in the energy and cloud spaces.

Key Takeaways: Owning The Customer Experience Larry Gordon is the Managing Director, GTM, Emtec Digital, a firm that empowers their transportation and logistics clients to accelerate innovation and deliver amazing client experiences. In the podcast interview, Larry explains how the customer experience is increasingly enabled by technology. Consumer technology companies like Amazon have raised the bar on customer experience. Leading transportation, logistics, and warehousing companies are investing to deliver the best customer experience. The 3PL market is separating between the “haves” who have game-changing technology and the “have-nots” who are unable or unwilling to invest in technology. In the past, IT service companies developed systems that were focused on operational and financial functions that were not seen or use by the firm's customers. Today, IT service companies are not just not just developing systems that streamline the process – they are delivering customer experiences. When the customer is regularly interacting with the technology, the bar is very high. IT services companies who are developing customer experiences, work closely with customers (end customers) to understand their unique preferences. Emtec develops digital products or platforms that are customer facing – products that have the ability to delight customers and give your company a competitive advantage. Emtec is a global technology services company providing digital software engineering and transformation solutions to clients in logistics, transportation, and warehousing. Emtec also works some of the leading technology companies in the freight tech space.

If you are an eCommerce brand and starting on the eCommerce journey, 3PL may appear to be an attractive option. You might feel that the only thing matters for eCommerce is sales and marketing. But as you advance in your journey, you will quickly realize how critical your operations are for your customer experience. If your customers can't receive the right products at the right time, they will not stick with you for very long, regardless of how compelling could be your messaging and customer services interactions. But the biggest frustration would be to be penalized for none of your faults. How would it feel if your 3PL shipped your competitor's product to your customer? But that's what happens when you lose control of your supply chain. While the new 3PLs make it look very attractive due to their tech capabilities, the age-old problems with 3PLs are still the same. And ShipBob is no exception to that.In today's episode, we invited a panel of cross-functional experts for a live interview on LinkedIn who brings significant expertise to discuss ShipBob's capabilities.

When you look at the eCommerce fulfillment space, there are many options out there. And most of these options could appear very similar. In fact, sometimes it's very hard to spot the difference between a 3PL and an eCommerce fulfillment software, as both software might appear similar. Just because your Shopify can integrate with their 3PL software, it's not meant to be a replacement for your order management platform. It should not even be compared in the software category. It's just another channel similar to EDI or integration with a traditional 3PL. The newer breed of 3PL offers deeper software capabilities than your traditional 3PLs.
