Optimizing Warehouse Space using FIFO and LIFO Procedures

Optimizing Warehouse Space using FIFO and LIFO

Warehouse Inventory Management is an important part of your logistics and its based on multiple factors. Suppose a warehouse manager cannot handle increased demand, sorting and delivery of orders then they could face the risk of losing customers. of course it’s too expensive to acquire a new space and optimizing available space with increased storage capacity can help solve these issues. In this blog we will explore how to make the best use of space to create a productive and profitable environment.

No doubt warehouse management can provide you the competitive advantage, there are different methods and First-In First-Out (FIFO) & Last-In First-Out (LIFO) are two standard methods of valuing a business’s inventory. We will here explore which method boost your profits and lower your tax burden. FIFO method is one most common method offering great advantages. This method assumes that the first items to enter inventory are the first to be sold or used. With the proper execution of a FIFO system, you will always achieve good stock rotation.

The last in, first out method of inventory management is the exact opposite of FIFO. It is better for nonperishable goods and uses current prices to calculate the cost of goods sold. LIFO only applies to stable goods that don’t apply to any timeline.

Optimizing Warehouse space is all about getting the right product to the right place at the right time. Analyze your inventory to determine which items are best managed with LIFO or FIFO. This will help you understand how to organize your warehouse shelves and optimize the use of space based on inventory movement.

  • Consider specialized storage options, such as racks or bins, to help you optimize space while ensuring that items are organized based on LIFO or FIFO requirements.
  • Use barcode scanning or RFID technology to track items and ensure that the LIFO or FIFO procedure is followed.
  • Regularly review and adjust your inventory management procedures based on changes in inventory movement or storage needs.
  • With a strategic layout, you can avoid cramped spaces, bottlenecks and inefficient storage.
