, the manufacturer of handheld scanners and RFID
readers, surveyed over 250 supply chain, warehouse and distribution managers in the United Kingdom and found that warehouse
employees are wasting time due to inefficient processes. The Intermec survey found that on average each warehouse employee was wasting 15 minutes per eight hour shift, which equates to 3,000 hours a year due to unproductive workflows.
Over a quarter of the managers surveyed believe the most inefficient process in the warehouse is inventory control (26 percent), closely followed by packing and unloading (20 percent) and picking (18 percent). The supply chain managers overwhelmingly agreed that this lost time due to inefficient processes could be reclaimed if their companies invested in new technology for the warehouse.
