While the company has grown manifold, due to high dependence on manual processes and labour, they were unable to scale operations and drive efficient business practices.
Accountability of Returnable Inventory
Tracking and accountability for all plastic crates/totes going back from Distribution Centres to the main Warehouse was a challenge.
Due to extensive manual effort, a lot of manhours were wasted, and this slowed further processes as well, thereby decreasing time efficiency. This eventually affected the end consumers.
Visibility of Plastic Crates/Totes
Since the RTIs are needed to be in circulation for Warehouse operations, low or no visibility of the availability or non-availability of plastic crates/totes affected operations, leading to inefficiency and low productivity.
