At the annual Warehousing Education and Research Council (WERC) conference that was held April 30 – May 3, distribution center study results were shared by Drs. Karl Manrodt and Donnie Williams from Georgia College and Joe Tillman, the supply chain research lead for metrics organization APQC.
The video opens with a surprising shift in metrics. For the first time in about a decade, on-time shipping has dropped from being the most used metric – replaced by warehouse capacity utilization. Details on why this change occurred along with the discussion of other topics including DC capacity utilization growth, a supply chain’s need to be agile, the role of strategic HR in distribution, and more are mentioned within the conversation.
The interview and video series is produced by Supply Chain Digest, a supply chain management and logistics publication. Supply Chain Digest summarizes and synthesizes important information for busy supply chain and logistics professionals.
