WAREHOUSING AND LOCATION DECISION IN SUPPLY CHAIN MANAGEMENT Presented By Govinda Gowda.H.G

INTRODUCTION : 

INTRODUCTION Warehouse is a location to store inventory with adequate facilities. Every company stores its goods while they wait to be sold. Thus, the ability to meet customer demand by getting the right products to the right place, at the right time, and in the right condition is an essential competency with bottom-line implications.

Location decision : 

Location decision crucial element in logistics planning. High costs associated with property acquisition and facility construction facility location or relocation is strategic investments. The location decision is meant to adapt the dynamic changes in business environments surrounding the firm's supply - chain operations.

Importance of warehouse & location decision : 

Importance of warehouse & location decision A Warehouse is typically viewed as a place to store inventory, However in many logistical system designs, the warehouse is more properly viewed as a switching facility as contrasted to a storage facility. While effective distribution systems should not be designed to hold inventory for an excessive length of time, there are occasions when inventory storage is justified.

Potential warehouse locations : 

Potential warehouse locations It is important to identify potential locations for new warehouse. Typically these locations must satisfy a variety of conditions. Geographical & infrastructure conditions Natural resources & labour availability Local industry & tax regulations Public interest An optimum location satisfy this four criteria to the maximum extent.

Most of the firms using 3PL Technique for warehousing : 

Most of the firms using 3PL Technique for warehousing What is 3PL(Third-party logistics) A third-party logistics provider (abbreviated 3PL) is a firm that provides outsourced or "third party" logistics services to companies for part, or sometimes all of their supply chain management function. Third party logistics providers typically specialize in integrated warehousing and transportation services that can be scaled and customized to customer’s needs based on market conditions and the demands and delivery service requirements for their products and materials.

Cost Associated with 3PL Warehousing : 

Cost Associated with 3PL Warehousing Handling costs: This include labour & utility costs that are proportional to annual flow through the warehouse. Fixed costs: Capture cost components that are not proportional to the amount of material that flows through the warehouse. The fixed cost is typically proportional to warehouse size (capacity). Storage costs: Represent inventory holding costs, which are proportional to average positive inventory levels .

Types of Warehouse : 

Types of Warehouse Firms either own private warehouses or rent space in public warehouses or both. Both have their own merits & demerits. Owning a private warehouse brings more control, ties up capital, and is less flexible if locations change. On the other hand, public warehouses charge for rented space, provide additional services for inspecting, packaging, shipping and invoicing goods but at a cost, and offer wide choice of locations and warehouse types

Types Continues…….. : 

Types Continues…….. Private warehouses: a private warehouse is operated by the firm owning the product. The actual facility, however, may be owned or leased. The strategic decision that fits best to the individual firm depends on its financial aspects. Firms with very specialized customers or products are often motivated to develop their own warehouse facility. Public warehouses: Public warehouses are used extensively in logistic systems. The classification of public warehouses has been developed on the basis of the range of specialized operations performed

Continues…………. : 

Continues…………. General merchandise: are designed to handle general package commodities such as paper, small appliances, and house hold supplies. Refrigerated: handle & maintain food, medical items & chemical products. Special commodity: are designed to handle bulk material or items with special handling considerations, such as tiers or clothing. Bonded: are licensed by the government to store goods prior to payment of taxes or duties. Household goods: these are designed to handle and store large , bulky items such as appliances & furniture Contract warehouse: This combines the best characteristics of both private & public operations.

Who should be the “right” In-Charge for The Warehouse? : 

Who should be the “right” In-Charge for The Warehouse? Whether they are happy about it or not, it is becoming more and more common for purchasing professionals to be made responsible for management of the warehouse. Therefore, do not be surprised if warehouse management is added to their scope of responsibilities in the near future. To prepare for this trend, let’s explore the similarities between purchasing and warehouse management. Like Purchasing, warehouse management has many best practices. A couple of best practices recommend the use of effective slotting tools and bar coding.

Continues…. : 

Continues…. Effective slotting tools include the placement of high-volume items close to the point of shipping, use of clear slotting information under each item on the shelf, using the same slotting information on pick documents, and sorting the slot numbers into a sequence that supports a “no-backtrack” path for the picker. Bar codes can help in ensuring the right incoming product put in the right place and that the right outgoing product is picked in the right quantities. “By using bar code picking, not only one can pick faster, but he can also pick with virtually 100% accuracy.” In this method bar code implementations pay for themselves within six months, which leads to the most attractive aspect of warehouse management for purchasing professionals that offers the opportunity for cost savings.

Suggestions : 

Suggestions Contract warehousing is recommended as a long term, mutually beneficial arrangement which provides unique and specially tailored warehousing and logistics services to the client. Either effective slotting or bar codes can be used for the accuracy of information. The location decisions can be adapted to dynamic changes in business environments surrounding the firm's supply - chain operations .

conclusion : 

conclusion Warehousing & location facilities help in better storage & provides greater accuracy. The storage in warehouse should be for a short period of time & occationally for optimizing the costs.
