  • For products that have a very short “shelf life” like vegetables and fruits, you can learn from the traders of their style of purchasing. They go on a market survey before they place their order to the farms or orchards. Take note that farm products need at least 2 weeks advance notice for orders so...

  • On the part of the company, this case of a retiring employee who is indispensable is really a big problem. I know of some old guys who were still working even in their twilight years simply because the company wouldn’t let them go. One of the perks is a one month paid vacation abroad. How I love to...

  • You can see in the mall in any other commercial center during the month of December where almost all products are up for big sales discount simply because their stocks are nearing the expiration date. I had seen this right in the Duty Free stores in the airport where food stuff particularly chocolates...

  • I agree that prospecting is much easier with the use of the internet particularly with big companies that are prospecting big businesses that have their own website or social media account. In the olden days we had to use the phone directory for searching prospects and using the landline phone for that...

  • This issue of gender has been blown up before regarding the use of office toilets. One LGBT wanted to have his own type of toilet that is not for male nor female. It is a big expense for the company to have a new toilet for that LGBT considering that he is only 1 of his kind, so to speak. I am not against...

  • To be honest with the issue, I am not conforming to the accommodation that a company would provide except when the location of the job makes it so difficult for the worker to come to work. Giving free accommodation is generosity on the part of the company or the business owner. But let’s not forget...

  • In my stint with a bank, I’d say that customer service is paramount. That was emphasized when I attended the bank orientation on my first week upon hiring. The client is the most important element in the bank branches so managers and staff should be very friendly like welcoming the client with an offer...

  • I guess the night delivery is preferred by drivers and probably by the company as well due to the smoother flow of traffic than during the daytime. With a benchmark test of the speed of the delivery, it was found out that night travel is 50% faster than daytime travel for delivery trucks. That is to...

  • When it comes to supplies, it is my standard to go with medium quality because high quality items are very expensive and the customers couldn’t afford it while low quality if frowned upon especially when there comes an issue like spoiled or expired product much more when the products is proved to be...

  • A security guard is a uniformed personnel in charge of overseeing the place particularly the warehouse in our topic. When the environment is not friendly then I guess the number of security guards should be increased and to be augmented by cctv cameras. It would be a big disaster when a guard would...

    started a topic Accident insurance for workers

    Accident insurance for workers

    Logistics companies should be aware of the probability of accidents whether in the workplace or during transport of goods. One insurance agent tells me that it is imperative for the company to get an insurance plan for all their personnel. I have to agree because having the workers insured will somehow...

  • One important factor in the progress of the business is the trend. This factor came to fore only in the age of social media when we realized about the trending topics and the viral posts which means the trend is consumed by the public. This reminds me of the fashion in the olden days when a brand of...

  • I am amused by the way some friends are selling used items in social media. The term they use is “pre-loved” to mean the item they are selling are used items. Maybe I have to agree with the creativity because pre-loved is nicer to hear than “used” which is somewhat discriminatory. But for me, it would...

  • Gambling inside the warehouse

    This is another petty issue but big in magnitude in terms of decorum and proper attitude in the work place. Gambling is a vice that should not be tolerated no matter how petty is the betting. As they say big things come from small things. A gambler is always in want of money so you can guess what I...

  • It would depend on the kind of product to be delivered before we can say that the truck is the best. Over here, there is a truck ban during daytime and it greatly hampers the delivery schedule of trucks. Some small logistics companies are turning to the open pick up truck or the utility van that can...

  • Outsourcing the entire warehouse personnel

    It is new to me that a company would outsource the entire labor force for a warehouse. The reason is the training expenses for building up the plantilla for the new warehouse. I think that is good to save on cost but isn’t it unhealthy to allow another company to operate your own warehouse? I’m sure...

    replied to Fun activities after work
    In the olden days we would be playing billiards, darts or bowling to unwind after work. My officemates would always ask me to come along for a bottle of beer while playing. It was really fun and it is like gaining new friends. But now I guess the most popular games for the young ones are the computer...

    replied to Video - Drones in Distribution
    I think the drone system of delivery is one radical solution that can bypass the problem of road congestion. I can imagine that when drones for delivery become popular then the road will ease up naturally because trucks will be lesser on the road. Unfortunately the drone for delivery has to undergo...

  • It is obviously more expensive to outsource from offshore agencies because of the distance. But what can the company do when there are not qualified applicants for the position that you are hiring? Third world countries are getting the benefit of that offshore outsourcing especially when you consider...

  • The drone is a new technology that can be used for security purposes just like the cctv camera. In fact, the drone has a camera that takes footages down below. My take on the drone is the operation because unlike the cctv system where you can just leave it alone to record the video, the drone needs...
