HOJ Innovations, the parent company to WarehouseOS, conducts a thorough evaluation process of how labor is utilized to receive and ship product and has found in hundreds of e-commerce operations. According to Tim Hoj, CEO of Hoj Innovations, reducing warehouse labor costs is often a matter of small adjustments and process improvements to existing operations. Continuous process improvement reduces warehouse labor costs while achieving enhanced productivity goals, increased production, and a significant reduction in warehouse operation expenses.
Instead of adding more warehouse labor, increase picking efficiency by 100 percent, reduce errors, speed up returns, and reduce training times to fifteen minutes or less. More labor is not the answer. Less labor is the solution with tools that allow existing warehouse labor to be maximally productive.
Hoj Innovations walks through customers’ warehouses (a Gemba walk part of a kaizen event) from one end of the facility to the other. Observing the operation with “fresh eyes” (and fifty years of warehousing experience) allows some of the “obvious” opportunities for improvement to be revealed quickly.
By diagramming existing (and potentially new or revised) processes a documented walk and inspection assessment allows a thorough evaluation for keeping labor cost under control. 3PLs, warehouses, and distribution centers, often ask Hoj Innovations to return twice a year to conduct warehouse evaluations.
