The results of this year’s Warehouse Operations & Trends Survey are in! Every year, Peerless Research Group (PRG) conducts a survey on behalf of Logistics Management and sister publication Modern Materials Handling to inquire about operational factors at warehouses and DCs. The questions concern topics like size of the DC network, number of employees, average annual inventory turns, use of temporary labor, strategies for coping with peak demand, and other challenges such as finding and retaining labor. Once the answers have been collected, top industry experts like St. Onge Company’s Don Derewecki and Norm Saenz are called in to analyze and discuss the results.
