For the past several years, Clarion Shipping Services has been operating multiple warehouses in the UAE successfully. As one of the pioneers in warehouse management and owning one of the biggest warehouses in the UAE, Clarion Shipping Services has developed strategies and innovative methods to fully meet its client’s expectations in the most competent and effective manner.
Here are some of the good practices that can be used for running a warehouse in the UAE
- Run an audit
It is important for the customers to get a complete understanding and visibility of what is being stored in a third-party warehouse. In order to gain complete visibility, it is important that auditing of inventories is done on a regular basis. Auditing the stored inventory will help to understand what all items are going out and coming into the warehouse in a certain period. Using warehouse management software will help the customers to understand where their item is in the warehouse and also helps in understanding whether a refilling is required.
Proper documentation of what is going out and coming into the warehouse is important, especially in the UAE. These are records that need to be kept and needs to be submitted to government departments when it is requested. If the documents are not produced during the time of the request, it may invite a heavy fine to the customer or the third-party storage company.
Effective communication plays a vital part in the smooth operations of a warehouse. One of the key success metrics of Clarion shipping services is the effective communication between the facility staff, back end operations team, customs, documentation team, and the customers. If not communicated well with any of these stakeholders may reflect in wastage of time and money to the customers.
