Inventory security

Inventory security plays a major role in optimal warehouse management. Best-before date management ensures that there are no perishable or safety-risk goods in the warehouse. The efficiency of a company stands and falls with the efficiency of the warehouse. In the food sector, for example, inventory security starts with the receipt of goods with precise best-before date and remaining shelf life monitoring, through batch recording and tracing, to order picking with weight handling or temperature recording.

Inventory security also plays a major role in other areas, such as technical wholesale. A store is integrated at the warehouse so that the customer who is directly on site can be supplied at short notice and the correct stock is available.

Inventory loss is often unavoidable. The reasons for this can be theft, incorrect incoming goods inspection (incoming goods inspection), incorrectly stored goods or the goods have not been posted but have been dispatched. These causes and others can jeopardize the security of the stock.
