Suitability for SKU Throughput Range (E)

Warehouse DesignLogistics is very expensive function of every company. Warehouse is very expensive, often contributing 25% of total logistics. At same time warehouse need to provide sufficient service level to customer. Therefore, planning of warehouse design is crucial for effective and cost efficient service.

The technology level assessment again, looking at the combination of throughput levels, and storage levels on this diagram I have tried to put some figures which point automation may be considered, and different levels of automation.

For example, at the y-axis, above about ten thousand pallets, perhaps full automation needs to be in the equation as a possibility. And similarly, on the x-axis over a thousand order lines an hour, or two hundred pallets an hour, again possibly full automation needs to be considered.

Obviously these numbers will vary by different country and by the different cost characteristics in those countries, but these are just rough ballparks, just a start considering whether or not warehouse automation can be ordered or housed at this stage.
