Warehouse Slotting Services

Reduce non-value added processes with slotting analysis

Having a hard time determining where to locate product based on popularity? Depending on the picking methodology, warehouse employees can spend upwards of 60 percent of their time walking to and from picking mediums, which can cause tremendous increases in cycle times and cost. Slotting your warehouse ensures SKUs are in the best picking locations by determining size and velocity of SKUs, balancing the labor within picking zones, and placing SKUs in more ergonomic locations. 

If your operation requires excessive amounts of labor, your SKU mix has recently changed, or picking cycle times are too high, let our engineers perform a slotting analysis. A slotting analysis will tell you which of your products move faster and where to store inventory in your facility to minimize time out the door to your customer.

What is Warehouse Slotting?

Warehouse slotting (or profiling) is the process of putting SKUs in the right picking locations within your warehouse. Properly slotting a facility reduces labor costs and improves throughput by increasing pick and replenishment efficiencies, increasing order accuracy, and reducing ergonomic risks associated with improper picking and replenishment arrangements.
