Warehouse Storage And Distribution – Key Roles You Can Expect To See
Warehouse storage and distribution centres rely on a number of key personnel to ensure that they run effectively. When choosing a centre to work with your business, it is important to visit the unit and check whether these key personnel are present and working effectively for the benefit of their clients.
The exact staffing of any warehouse storage unit will depend on its size, location and the type of storage and distribution that it specialises in. However, all units should have at least one warehouse manager. It is their role to oversee the processes and ensure the smooth running of the unit on a daily basis. Alongside them, particularly in larger units, there may be deputy managers who oversee specific areas of the warehouse, such as the picking department, goods in, goods out, packers and drivers. Larger warehouse storage solutions will then have a dedicated team working with each deputy manager. Additionally, there will be unloaders, forklift operators and quality assurance staff. When visiting a potential storage partner, you should witness good communication between each sector or department; each should be aware of their roles, and the roles of the other teams. Some of the most important roles within a warehouse and distribution centre are behind the scenes. These include the IT team, safety officer, security team and accounting department. It is just as important to ensure that these roles are filled if the company you are considering is to be able to work effectively on your behalf.
