It’s 8 a.m. and your first shift employees are just getting started. The warehouse has appeared a little disheveled lately with products creeping into the wrong locations. You assigned one of your most dependable workers with the task of labeling the products in a specific section.
Since he took on that job, he’s appeared at the office printer, probably dozens of times per day. He walks the aisle. He scans. He prints. And in between, he does a lot of walking, and a fair amount of talking.
There’s a significant amount of downtime where he’s not as productive as he could be. It’s not his fault, but if there was something that could be done to keep him in the warehouse where he’s supposed to be working, it’d be worth exploring.
Situations like this pop up all the time, and Newcastle powered carts from Imprint Enterprises serve as an ideal solution. When your employees have everything they need for their busy day, it can cut down drastically on the amount of errant walking they’ll need to do.
Newcastle carts provide some tremendous advantages for warehouse efficiency that you’ll notice in other ways. Below are just a few.
5 More Reasons You’ll Love Newcastle Carts
- You Can Trim Your Payroll – With higher employee productivity, you can pay out 75 percent less overtime. That’s money you can either reinvest somewhere else in your business or realize as profit.
- More Efficient Stocking – You can reduce warehouse cycle times by up to 60 percent for more capacity. Product in, product out. That’s the way it should be.
- Cut Down on Mislabeling – Mislabeled product can lead to horribly expensive mistakes. When label information is input, and the label is printed and applied in the warehouse location, accuracy is increased.
- Increased Job Satisfaction – Employees are happier when they are allowed to be more productive, instead of continuous, long walks from point A to point B.
- A Big Return on Investment – Carts allow you to become more productive without large software or infrastructure changes. They offer a six-month return on investment with lifetime savings after that.
In fact, just one cart user can save your company about $5,269 per year. Think about those costs spread out through your warehouse workforce. Think about that savings spread across 50 carts? Or maybe 100? The cost savings possibilities are endless.
