Proper scheduling of rack spaces


Sometimes this issue is neglected that results in excess stocks that couldn’t be unloaded from the truck. What usually happens is that the truck would stay for a day or 2 in the warehouse until a space for the supplies are created. That is an added cost to the company since the trucks would charge for the extra day of delay in the return of the trucks. This is the responsibility of the warehouse manager.


I wonder what would the warehouse manager do when there is no empty rack inside and there arrived the new stocks. That is a big disaster that should be avoided. I am not well-versed when it comes to inventory but my take on the issue is to always leave a space for an allowance in case a sudden order of stocks arrives without notice. If the warehouse is always full then there should be an action to get more space.
