  • Dovetail Outreach, the lease consideration is one important factor that can be overlooked when the owner of the warehouse is pushing with the deal. The fine print is the rate of increase that should be studied very well particularly if the warehouse is in a a good location that is near the city. The...

    replied to Hoarding
    Over here hoarding is commonly done by cartels. It is like a syndicate by a group of traders that try to control the market prices. When there is short supply in the market the price goes up so the hoarders will slowly release their supply to the market for a better price. If the government will not...

  • I have noticed that smoking is now prohibited inside the warehouse and some big companies do not allow smoking inside the compound. This is a vast improvement from the regulations before where I had seen personnel smoking inside the warehouse while doing their work. That is common for a hardware warehouse...

  • Fluctuating supplies in the market

    Before the Christmas season last year, there was a problem in the swine industry because of the foot-and-mouth-disease that greatly affected the market. It was logical for the price to surge and the government issued a warning against opportunists. But the real problem with the suppliers to the retailers...

  • Road regulation for trucks

    This regulation has been implemented for more than 10 years already but I still see some trucks doing or violating that regulation of the ďNose in and nose outĒ in the main roads. The regulation prohibits trucks to enter a warehouse rear first because it would create traffic on the road especially for...

  • I agree that you have to be on the level with your dealings. But mind you that smuggled goods come to the hands of big time importers thatís why it is so difficult to catch them. Take for instance the rice cartel where some traders import rice without government permit. They hoard the rice and flood...

  • In summary, a warehouse operator is one who handles the upkeep and the operation (incoming and outgoing of supplies). It includes safety and security plus all the other operations concerning the warehouse which is not limited to the upkeep of the warehouse and facilities. I posted my own summary because...

  • Regarding the trends in supply chain, what comes to my head is the unusual trend that may hit the products that you are dealing with. An example is the volatile price changes of oil products that is largely dependent on the world market prices. Another trend is the online ordering of products which...

  • Late last year when there was a slight shortage of rice in the market, it was reported in the news that one warehouse of the government contained spoiled rice which is not good for human consumption anymore. The reason was the bad weather and the pests that entered the warehouse. Itís so sad that the...

  • Shortage of supplies due to hoarding

    This is issue recently is about the hoarding of rice that created a shortage in supply in the market which caused the sudden price increase. Hoarders definitely profited from their gimmick although the government was trying to find the hoarders but to no avail. I have posted this topic because I know...

  • The manager of a warehouse inside our village that gets their supplies from the farm in the mountain province (roughly 7 hours drive) said that treating the suppliers as a partner assures them of continuous supply of vegetables. The partnership is included in the procedure of the farm as during the...

  • When the warehouse overflows

    It cannot be denied that lack of planning for the warehouse can cause congestion or worse overflowing. Some warehouse here had obviously been suffering from that problem because they use the parking lot to store some of the products that wouldnít fit inside the warehouse. The products in the parking...

  • My experience with a small warehouse was not as difficult as managing a standard warehouse. The only monitoring that I did was to check on the deliveries aside from the inventory in the satellite warehouse which is located in the southern part of the country. That satellite warehouse is the main depot...

  • What a very informative video particularly helpful for warehouse managers. The most interesting points to me are 1) the right amount of stock, 2) minimal touches of goods and 3) efficient labor. I have seen a warehouse with stocks outside covered with tarpaulin for a temporary storage. The reason is...

  • Security check of trucks before coming out of the warehouse

    Some big logistics companies here have the security check of the trucks before they are dispatched to the destination. It seems to me that there is no checking or audit prior to the uploading of the items into the crates or directly to the truck. I feel inconvenient in doing a physical check of the...

  • I agree that the rate of freight is not easy to bargain with because of the nature of the business that is dependent on the standards. My husbandís brother had a company importing high-grade steel from Japan. The flow of the product is from Japan to the carrier, to the port and then to the warehouse....

  • What to do when it is off-season

    An example to demonstrate this topic is the product of ice cream makers. During summer there is no question that sales are brisk no matter what area you are servicing. But during the rainy season it is expected for sales to dip although there is no such thing as zero sales because ice cream is considered...

  • Transportís dependence on trucks for land movement of cargo

    Our government is focused on the urban areas for the mass transport system which leaves businesses on their own devices. The truck is the primary transport method for land travel of goods because the railway system in the city is for human passengers only. I have mentioned so many times that trucking...

  • Especially in this digital age improvements and innovations in systems and methods are dynamic in order to keep up with the ever changing trends. I guess the increase in demand is not difficult to predict. The main issue in global supply chains is the currency values and the restrictions that companies...
