E-commerce: how to manage a warehouse to sell online

Managing the warehouse for an e-commerce requires you to always have under control every step of the process of preparation and shipment of orders. Read on to find out how to optimize each phase!

Plan your stock in advance

Regularly checking stocks of products is essential for selling online. Checking what you need for the various sections of your warehouse allows you to be always ready for any new purchases and at the same time helps you organize offers.

Organize your warehouse space

It is important to place the goods with the highest demand in an easily accessible location. As a result, you may instead place the less demanded items in areas of the warehouse that are more difficult to reach.

Choose a good WMS

Purchasing warehouse management software that monitors the traceability of products, stocks, reorders, inventory, etc. allows you to always have processes under control and saves time and money.

Check the status of the warehouse periodically

Given the speed of the online sales flow, monthly or weekly checks allow you to always know what you need in order to respond promptly to your customers’ needs. Report immediately the movements that take place in your warehouse, so as to reduce the possibility of making mistakes.

Listen to your customers

Customers want to be kept informed about the status of their orders at all times. You should guarantee them the opportunity to constantly monitor shipments, expected delivery date, actual delivery date, etc.. In this way you can increase the level of satisfaction of your customers and their fidelity.
