WHY WAREHOUSE INVENTORY IS NEEDED?
Warehouse inventory is one of the most important business control processes. Due to a large number of goods in the warehouses and the high turnover of products, special attention should be paid to the inventory of the warehouse.
The purpose of the warehouse inventory is to identify the actual availability of goods, shortages, and surpluses, eliminate regrading, determine the grade and storage conditions of goods, and identify the facts of theft.
Due to the high turnover of products in warehouses, personnel often make various mistakes when receiving, shipping, and moving goods, which leads to shortages and surpluses.
HOW IS THE WAREHOUSE INVENTORY CARRIED OUT PROPERLY?
Warehouse inventory can be carried out manually, which is very long and ineffective, or with the help of special equipment. In the second case, the speed and accuracy of inventory increase significantly.
The inventory of goods in the warehouse should be carried out at least once a year, but in practice, the inventory is carried out more often. If the warehouse contains products transferred for safekeeping, then the inventory is carried out once a month. In some cases, the inventory is carried out when the shift is handed over, and a new shift starts to work. In this case, the inventory may cover sample items and high-value items.
Warehouse inventory can be carried out in full, either by storage locations or by product groups. When carrying out an inventory in a warehouse, information on the location of a particular product is especially valuable. This information can be used to create a «map» of the warehouse or to organize targeted storage of products, which can significantly speed up the process of processing tasks in the future.
Considering the fact that large volumes of products can be stored in warehouses, it is rather difficult to carry out a quick inventory in a warehouse without special equipment and trained personnel.
