How to manage a warehouse effectively?

What general topics you want to cover with your team?  How to deal with tranferring a warehouse from one travel location to another (a problem that many warehouses face)? What kind of new employees you need? Should the warehouse have a supervisor or perform the task independently?

What does a warehouse look like?

These are some photos I took in 2013, when I had the fortune of visiting one.   They look nothing like this on your Quora answer. You claim that “early morning before dawn” (naked guys with flashlights delivering packages) is dated (mid-2000’s), but you have no clue what an actual shipping facility looks like or how they’re staffed. The main challenge of being a millennial blogger/influencer: being picked up by major brands AND writing about current events, fashion, finance and lifestyle – all at the same time!
The logistics that go into working a warehouse ain’t new either, it’s been around for over 100 years , where workers and machines do their work at giant centers across the world. Anyone can tell you about Amazon Prime and UPS holidays; these statements don’t even come close to what manual labor used to be back in the day. Meatpacking became mechanized in WW2 because of huge manpower needs and long time lines; guess what? Auto skilled workers did not have those needs anymore after World War II. Does anyone promise us that manual labor will rise again in another hundred years if we somehow figure out how to keep machines from doing more than half the work?

How to ventilate a warehouse?

Two simple ways. Take a Roloff AirShower for under $300; or a regular small shop vac for about $200. It doesn’t matter too much how you do it.
2. Open all the windows, doors and vents to let the air in.
3. Turn on the vac(s) and see if any of them are loosing suction (don’t know what that is). If so, one of those suction wand breaks might need replacing, replace or get a new hose – whichever you prefer to do first.
4. Clean up any messes that were left !!! Bring this enclosure back to its original clean state, unless your cleaning methods gained more than 100 tons of dirt/dust cleaners/patches will allow access inside until reaching full cleanliness!! The less dust in there the lousier it is going to be! 🙂
Thanks Yes !!!! Will follow #1 as well !
