ATLANTA, GA – Steve Johnson, Managing Principal of Johnson Stephens Consulting (JSC), will be a speaker at PARCEL Forum ’18. Steve will be leading a Round Table Event about “Solving Labor Availability Problems.”
Round Table Subject Matter:
DC Success Blueprint
Managing a successful DC today is more than put-away, pick-and-pack, and loading. Upper management wants you to shave costs, increase efficiencies and deliver on-time to customers, all while you face ever-increasing challenges. Do any of these challenges sound familiar? Profit center. Labor shortages. Continuity programs. Risk avoidance. Lowest cost, best service delivery. In this Pod, we have experts that can help address these issues along with roundtables where those facing your same challenges can come together for expert advice and brainstorming.
Wednesday, September 26, 2018; 9:00 AM – 9:50 AM
Table #1 at the Renaissance Schaumburg Hotel & Convention Center
- What actual, specific labor availability challenges are operations facing?
- What are the solutions for handling peak-order volumes that are much greater than average workloads, but only happen for 6 to 10 weeks during the year?
- How has the evaluation of highly automated solutions changed in the past year due to higher wage rates that can now make automation justified? Are there solutions for peak periods that include flexible automation that can be turned on and off?
