What's in Your Warehouse Management Maintenance Policy?


What's in Your Warehouse Management Maintenance Policy?



As the year continues to press ahead, you can sometimes lose track of the goals and plans you wanted to have in place. While you are going through your list of priorities, we encourage you to take some time to think about how you can improve the reliability of your warehouse.

Generally, the first half of the year is a quiet time for many businesses in various industries. The first half of the year is also a great time for warehouse facility managers to take some key measures if they truly want to ensure their warehouse is reliable at all times. As a warehouse manager, you are probably aware that you will not have the amount of time and energy to spend on these important measures in the upcoming months. It will be better for your warehouse and your surrounding operations if you take these steps during the quiet times of the year.

We know your warehouse facility already has a plan in place that determines how everyone should use the equipment within the facility. However, the difference between your strategy and the strategy of other warehouses will be the quality of your maintenance plan. You have to be sure that you have the right policies in place that will make the most sense for the type of equipment you use, your employees, and the ultimate goals of your warehouse.

Here are a few questions we want you to ask yourself as you are getting prepared to review the maintenance plans for your warehouse:

  • Can everyone understand the language in your warehouse maintenance policy?
  • Does your maintenance plan cover all its bases?
  • Has your policy been recently updated to include the new tools and equipment your warehouse is using?

When you want to plan ahead, this will sometimes mean you will need to make adjustments to the strategies and policies you already have in place in order to become more effective and productive.
